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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sick May 27, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Boring till the end June 19, 2012
By Kat
Format:DVD
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".

3.0 out of 5 stars Shocking and Brutal July 31, 2012
By Larry
Format:DVD
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.

Megan is missing is the story of two young teenage girls that live in suburbia. Their lives are plagued with the usually teen drama of fitting in, being popular,having sex, doing drugs, going to wild drunken parties, getting into arguments with your parents etc. etc. You know the usual things teens do (except turned up to the 19th power). Megan is an outspoken,pernicious,in crowd party girl, and her best friend Amy is a reserved,nerdy,timid type of girl. The two are complete opposites but their friends because each of them seems to have qualities that the other doesn't. In the film we watch the two girls carry out their adolescent lives and learn more about them and what makes them tick. The first half of the film basically is about character development for the two girls so you get to know them quite a bit. The 2nd half of the film is about why Megan is missing. The film itself feel very low budget with a pretty bad acting cast that makes the movie hard to take seriously (especially for the message they want to portray). If you were patient enough to make it through the "Teens gone wild" first half you are rewarded with the more interesting second half of the film.

*This part will contain spoilers*

After Megan is abducted by means of meeting up with a stranger she met online we get to see hints and clues as to what happened to her. We see her chained up in a basement and we see photo's of her BDSM style. The photo's are shocking or maybe disturbing to some people but honestly in the age of the internet these are pretty mild. The only thing that's shocking about them is that your mind recognizes Megan as a girl that you're familiar with instead of a random victim.

4.0 out of 5 stars the first 50 mins sucks, after that, hold on to your seat.
The first 50 minutes of this film needs to be taken as mental preparation and an extremely slow building sense of suspense. Read more

I liked this movie but that's just me. A lot of my friends and my ex said they will never watch it again. It has to do with rape and is pretty graphic towards the end.
