Trivia

Writer Isa Mazzei drew on her time as a webcam model when writing the screenplay. She said in an interview the goal she started with was to create a film where an audience would empathize with a sex worker. The two films she looked at most when conceptualizing what she wanted were Whiplash (2014) and Black Swan (2010). Both of those movies have protagonists who are obsessive and ambitious about what they're doing; who throw themselves into self-sacrifice for their art. She was also inspired by David Cronenberg's Videodrome (1983) because he never uses body horror gratuitously. It's always connected to a theme or character. See more »

Good with missed potential
20 November 2018 | by ryansalamenceSee all my reviews

Cam (2018) follows a camgirl who awakes one day to discover she's been replaced on her show with an exact replica of herself. This horror film introduces a haunting and highly intriguing scenario. Although the mystery itself is captivating, the conclusion is underwhelming as the film avoids any delivery of answers. The direction and cinematography were surprisingly fantastic, with the aesthetic of the cam rooms making for some beautiful shots and sets. I also really enjoyed the social commentary on how online sex workers are viewed and how they're forced to lead dual lives due to the stigma associated with the profession. Some better writing and a more solid third act could really change this film from good to great.
