Goofs

A continuity error takes place when Taylor is chasing Barb after Barb is outed. Taylor stops in front of a parked black car to answer her phone. When the camera angle changes, she is several feet into the street beyond where she had been standing. This is a plot hole as well since the person driving the car could not have tried to run her over if she was not in the street. See more »

Quotes

Taylor: Please don't! Cody, no, please don't!
Cody: Killing you two will tell me there's justice in this world
Taylor: That's not justice, it's murder
Cody: I know killing you won't bring them back but it will let me sleep at night knowing I don't have to suffer any more
Taylor: You're crazy

Attractively Cast Text Trauma
12 April 2015 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

Over the credits, a car crash looks deadly for three people. Mature-looking high school teenager Emily Tennant (as Taylor Sinclair) wakes up in her bed. It was only a dream. Word up, it's also a flashback. Two years ago, Ms. Tennant's dad died in that nightmarish accident, along with another couple. In school, Tennant attracts cute, leather-jacketed transfer student Keenan Tracey (as Cody Williams). He drives an amazing 1971 Skylark, which is exempt from smog checks. Very quickly, both Mr. Tracey and Tennant's other high school friends are victimized by a hooded Internet bully. This person seems to know all the dirt on everyone, and has embarrassing sex videos to share with the world. This all leads to tragedy...

Tennant's widowed mother is sexy super-detective Dina Meyer (as Allison). Eventually, mom will have stuff to investigate. Even without a bullet-proof vest, she may be invulnerable. The villain "TRUTH&LIES" can't even give Ms. Meyer back pain. While handy in protecting her daughter, mom's tactics are not politically correct. In fact, they're offensive and illegal. For example, detective mom interrogates by threatening a suspect with rape or other physical abuse in a juvenile facility. If this woman knows an individual, presumed innocent, is about to be raped or otherwise assaulted, she should report it immediately. Instead, we have a character condoning the crime and using it as an interrogation tactic.
