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!
Once aboard the flight, they are invited to play a game which could win them prizes, and without reading the terms and conditions, they begin to play.
After a few personal questions, secrets about the four are revealed, much to everyone's disdain, and when the group or individuals refuse to answer a question, a friend on their profile is killed.
Soon the faceless voice turns the group against each other, and guess what? They decide to go for each other.
After reading the reviews of this, I wasn't really looking forward to watching it, but it sounded okay, and I think Johnson is a good actress, so why not.
We are introduced to the group and as soon as you see them, you just know who will die first and why. The cocky tubby one was my first choice, because he was annoying and archetypal in the yuppie sense.
Second was the supposed glamorous one, who did nothing but giggle and/or moan.
The other two I wasn't too sure about. Once the film locates to the plane,it becomes more interesting and it turns out to be a very solid thriller. The DVD cover states its a cross between Saw and Catfish, I get the Catfish connotation, no matter how loose it is, but the Saw one is just to get the numbers up.
It's not gory, it's intelligent, and actually surprised me in the last third. There is a twist of course, but it's really quite clever and for once in a low budget thriller, different.
Well worth seeking out.
The plot is simple, 4 social network people win a trip to New York via an all together social network site (think Facebook). On the small plane on the way over, the actual intentions of the trip are laid bare as the characters have their online life thrown back in the face and are given increasingly horrible tasks to do lest their family members get killed. From there it's a quick decent into the depths people will stoop to when it's to save themselves and their families.
The violence is nasty when it comes, but the main driver of this film is the characters on screen. At first they all seem pleasant nice people you wouldn't mind socialising with, but as it progresses, we quickly see this is not the case. It's quite a cerebral film, and despite its claustrophobic setting, the quality of the performances really carry the action along. If only more modern horror films had this level of character depth and story.
If you liked this film then Panic Button's director Chris Crow's first feature film Devil's Bridge [DVD] is out soon. It's a lot in the same vein as this, small simple story with a great cast. I think he is definitely an exciting new UK director, making classy films for us jaded and fed up fans of horror sick on CGI glossy horror 'product' that seldom satisfies.
