Powerful and scarily relevant horror,
This review is from: Panic Button [DVD] (DVD)Who hasn't looked at something they shouldn't have online?
This new British horror film takes a look at the murky world of online voyeurism and the deadly consequences for four young people who are invited to take part in a gameshow centred on social media.
The theme of social media (eg. Facebook, Twitter etc) is well known to almost everybody and so you might recognise something of yourself in some of the characters in this film (though it might be hard to admit!). I can see this theme being increasingly popular and this is a pretty good stab(!) at the idea.
The film is well acted, has good pace and some genuinely shocking moments. It took a little while to get going, but the talky stuff is interesting at least.
I highly recommend this film to fans of horror, though it may make you wary of going online again!
