I wish I could give this movie five stars. I really do. I love the idea of a manifestation of human evil, coming alive through one of our greatest tools. I love the examination of "trolling" behavior and how it looks when people take that attitude into the real world. I love the idea of the extremes we can go through when we have the advantage of anonymity. And I love the idea of humanity being just a step in the evolution of something truly terrifying.

That being said though, the movie itself is a mess. Most of the actors are good, but the script is a jumbled mess. The dialogue is so overly-dramatic and jarring. It sounds to me like the writers spent a lot of time researching the inner-working of internet communities and personalities in a textbook, but never actually bothered to go online.

I enjoyed the reveal towards the end and thought it made for a very good ending, but the actual last couple of minutes were a little disappointing and predictable.

I think the filmmakers have some great ideas, but could really use some more time at the drawing board, trying to figure out the execution.

I give it three stars for the effort, because I am very impressed with the idea behind it, but I'm willing to admit that it's a generous rating, considering how the whole thing actually panned out.

For what it is- I really liked it. Lot's of blood. Lots of screaming. Lots of what I need when I'm in a funky mood.

I highly reccomend reading all the one star reviews before watching this. That being said any person handing this film one star is no film junkie and certainly no horror film junkie. There are far worse acted and directed films on the market today by far. Was this a masterpiece of modern horror...no. Do I think it was intended to be...no. How can one watch a horror film about a mass murderer named Smiley and take it seriously? All that being said Smiley delivered with the chills and threw in a couple of twists whether predicatable or not suited the feal of the film well. Kind of a modernized Nightmare on Elm Street/Candyman type for me...at least those are the films I found myself comparing it to while watching. So if your going to go in thinking this is going to knock your socks off don't bother you'll sound like a cliche' bash reviewer. Go on assuming this has a campy factor to it and won't regret it. I'm rewatching.

I enjoyed this movie. Basically they are hackers from Anonymous and don't want to give anything away, but a good movie with a cool little twist. The only thing that bothered me was the sounnd didn't line up with their lips. When it was on cable, I thought it was just the network, but looks like the video does that too. It isn't extremely off, but noticeable.

I didn't expect much with this movie. I'm also fairly forgiving with horror movies, especially cheaper ones.

With that said I feel like it mostly delivered as far as typical YA/Teen slashers go.

<MINOR SPOILERS>

Plot-wise, most of the movie was predictable, hinging on the idea of the questions of which the main character was really witnessing murders, if she was crazy, or if the supernatural were involved or not. In an otherwise typical plot wondering what the answers to these questions were the height of the plot. I feel like these general ideas in the plot were interesting, but didn't meet their full potential due to the writing and some of the acting.

<END OF MINOR SPOILERS>

The acting was okay. There were some good moments, and there were some bad moments in there as well. Most of the time the acting felt rather average or not note-worthy. Caitlin Gerard probably had the strongest performance. Many of the other characters felt less developed and more one-dimensional.

Overall, I wouldn't call this an excellent movie by any means, but if you like B-level horrors or the generic teen or college generic slasher, it's probably a movie to save and watch a night when you don't have anything special to watch. If the film had some more creative writing and if the acting was a bit more refined it could have possibly been a lot better.

Although the cameos were entertaining, don't waste your time on this movie. It was pretty stupid throughout the whole movie, and the ending was just confusing and dumb. They tried to have a spooky, twist ending, but it really didn't work and just was a disappointment. The main character was too whiny and had one too many mental breakdowns, and her mediocre "dorm buddy" was just an awful actress. I did like the relationship between the main character and the nerd guy, but that wasn't enough to save this awful movie. The jump scares weren't half bad, but, once again, it didn't save the movie from being awful. I also think the main character's father and teacher came off as creepy and just not enjoyable characters to have in the movie. I also saw that they had some sort of sadness from the main character because her mother died, which would have been a great component to the story, but they didn't use it enough and there was really no point in bringing it up at all. And one more thing, if your going to have a movie centered around a mysterious monster/creature/evil thing, make sure you try to explain it a little better. I just kind of felt this movie was meant as a joke. After all, it talks about memes and the internet while having internet stars as characters in the movie.
