Cynthia Lee MacQuarrie,
Heading out to find a new victim, a serial killer finds a young girl and brings her back to his lair in order to torture her for a legion of followers online only to have his hands full with trying to ensure he can stay focused on the task at hand.
Overall, this was quite the decidedly awful serial killer effort. One of the few enjoyable elements to be had here is the fact that the found footage creation manages to work decidedly well for the film's overall point. The simplistic nature of what's going on, with the initial scenes of the guy preparing to go out and then following her for several blocks before striking and taking her, sets up a rather intriguing setup that plays out involving the live-streaming and the torture that's inflicted there. With everything that's shown here of the barbaric and brutal manners of torture that inflicts for the live streaming patrons that he continually interactions As well, the final revenge here is completely worthwhile and earned from the start, which is about all that works here. There's a lot to dislike here, starting with the absolutely primitive setup that really does this one no favors. The one-setting location of the entire effort means the camera never changes from the same static shot of her in the background tied up while he interacts sporadically with her and turns the entire affair into a bland, drawn-out repetitive effort. It's all pretty much the same thing for the entire time as they just sit around either talking about what the purpose of his tormenting and torturing her is all about or featuring some utterly banal and weak torture scenes where the camera angle makes it obvious he's not making contact with her which lowers the intensity significantly. The scenes of the two engaging in the revelation of his rampage are just laughable and cringe-inducing, really making this one really lame and bland.
Rated Unrated/R: Intense Violence and Graphic Language.
