Editorial Reviews

On January 14th, 2007, 14-year-old Megan Stewart disappeared. Three weeks later, her 13-year-old best friend Amy Herman also vanished. Assembled from video chats, webcam footage, home videos and news reports, this is what happened in the days immediately before, and after, Megan went missing.

From writer/director Michael Goi comes this unblinking depiction of internet predators and child abduction as seen through the eyes of two North Hollywood teens. Their language is blunt. Their behavior is shocking. And their fate is absolutely horrific. Amber Perkins, Rachel Quinn and Dean Waite star in this disturbing and often explicit drama about a real-life world of risks and danger that every teen must know...and no parent can afford to miss.

Let me begin by saying that this a well scripted, well acted, well written, well directed and excellent movie. However, let me continue to say that this was one of the most disturbing things I have ever witnessed on my 32" HD television screen and I wish it were just a little blurrier.

This movie is not excessively gory like the Hills Have Eyes or any other slasher on the market, it's not even as gory as Paranormal Activity and it's not overly profane like Reservoir Dogs or even Shrek, there's no nudity and there's no visualization of any dismemberment or otherwise. But this movie truly hits a nerve as you watch it, not because of any unnecessary violence or even the rape scene itself. For some reason watching it happen to a 21 year old on the big screen can be art and brilliance, but watching it happen to a 13 year old...I don't know, they may only show the face but the expression on her face..., but it gets you and hits you hard in your bodies deepest, most primal instincts of protecting those you care for. The characters are well done enough that they seem real to you as you watch the movie, even if the antics of Megan's friends are way over the top of any barely teenage girl I've ever met. Watching it, I know they created girl's characters to fit two completely different social extremes to show that these same circumstances can happen to anyone and everyone, whether you're the popular, smart student, the class slut, the good-one, or even the misfit. (They may be only two characters but they had four personalities). I think the worst part about the whole experience is you KNOW some similar circumstances have happened before on a daily basis and they'll probably happen again, and again, and again, and again. For these reasons listed above I would give the movie 5-stars.

I watched this movie after having a personal experience with online predators. Let me first say that I am a horror flick addict. I have seen all the Saw movies, Hills have eyes, last house on the left... blah blah-- goes on. I have been irked by many of these films, but have never felt so disturbed like I am now. This movie is not for those who have a queasy stomach, and even if you don't, like me, you may feel the need to fast forward through parts. I had to. The beginning of the movie gives you no heads up on what you're in for. It's very deceiving, which makes the end so shocking. All in all, a movie that was a little overwhelming, but as I said because of personal experience, I can appreciate the attempt in trying to show how online temptation could end up. Maybe not in the way that this particular movie ended-- but we get the point. Don't let your kids go online without supervision of some kind. Reality check--- point made.

This movie was extremely unsettling. Afterwards you feel hopeless, afraid, and angry especially as a parent. When you have kids every mother knows that you have three major nightmares and they are in this order; someone will hurt your kids, your child will be sick, your child will hurt themselves. However, when you watch the real life terror that families go through on tv it is like you are watching a glamorous who done it. I am guilty of it too. Are the parents at fault? Did the police botch the investigation? Are they dead? Honestly this movie made me feel ashamed of the participation I've had in media hipe surrounding these cases. When Megan has gone missing and the media sinks it's teeth into her story, they start by telling you a child is kidnapped about every 40 seconds and then they go on to talk about Megan's case. The reporter casually mentions a young boy going missing in an inner city neighborhood, like a side note, and then returns to talking about the beautiful, young, white girl that was missing. Brilliant. Most people watching the movie probably didn't even pick that up. And that was the point. The media covers missing children's cases based on which stories make for good ratings. But even this becomes trivial at the end of the movie because what happens to these children news coverage or not is the same once they have been kidnapped. People hate this movie for the last 25 minutes, but this movie is validated in those uncomfortable, horrifying moments. Because then you understand that these cases are not glamorous who done its. You understand that there is no hope, there is no calvory riding in to save them, they will not make a galliant escape. The last few moments in an abducted childs life is pain and fear.Read more ›

This is a hard movie to review. I will say this though, I have never been more bothered or shaken by ANY movie as I have been by this one. The movie should be required viewing for any teenager, boy or girl, in order to shake them to their core. This is the stuff you never hear about when a child is kidnapped, and you should be glad because the last 25 minutes of this movie are very hard to watch.

This movie has been getting a lot of hype and flack for the content. So I figured I better watch and see for myself.

Honestly the first hour is painfully boring. Its two teenage girls standing in front of cell phones or cameras talking. (all of this movie is "found footage" from cell phones, web cams, etc. so get used to it) Some parts they discuss first time sexual activities, or being molested. Honestly pretty disturbing for someone of my age (30) to listen to as the girls in the movie are 14/15 years old. Now, if I was their age, I wouldn't have been uncomfortable really listening to them talk like this because I'd relate to their age group, but instead it was pretty disturbing and I found myself wondering what I was really in store for.

The movie starts to get a little funny. I know, its wrong of me to be laughing about it, because it is a serious issue, this sort of thing really did/does happen, and this movie was based on a few different real cases. But the problem is that the writing in this and the acting during certain scenes were just hilarious even without trying to be. Or maybe it was trying to make you laugh during this specific scene (the scene where they show, and reenact the abduction of Megan) just so they can shock you in the next shot. With a few still "horrific" images. Here I am laughing about this scene and these images pop up and I shut off the movie. I was alone, late at night, kinda scared of what they'd show next. Now, later I looked online or these images, and they weren't that bad, creepy, but I guess just within the context of the movie at that moment they freaked me out.

I did turn the movie back on. But I was creeped out from that point on as really that's where it turns into "horror".
