Suspense/Thriller: A group of friends must contend with increasing dangers after one of them logs into a computer connected to unsavory behavior on the Internet's dark web.
Matias (COLIN WOODELL) is a young man who's looking forward to game night with his friends -- Damon (ANDREW LEES), Lexx (SAVIRA WINDYANI), AJ (CONNOR DEL RIO), and Nari (BETTY GABRIEL) and Serena (REBECCA RITTENHOUSE) who've recently gotten engage -- playing Cards Against Humanity. Likely not joining them is Amaya (STEPHANIE NOGUERAS), Matias' deaf girlfriend who's upset with him for not trying harder to learn sign language to better communicate with her.

He's using a laptop he says he bought on Craigslist, but as he's communicating with his friends via Skype and Amaya through Facebook messenger, he starts getting messages seemingly intended for the previous owner. That soon leads to him opening a folder of videos that show not only a variety of surveillance cameras that have been hacked into, but also a number of far more disturbing ones showing young women who've been kidnapped, tortured and killed.

Things become even dicier when one of those kidnappers, known only as Charon 68, contacts Matias and informs him that if he doesn't return that laptop or informs Amaya, he'll kill her and will do the same if any of his friends disconnect or contact the police. From that point on, the small group of friends tries to figure out who's responsible and how to save Amaya from a fate that begins to affect them as well.

Since it's about young people on the Internet it might be enticing to some, including those who liked the first "Unfriended" movie.
For some disturbing violence, language and sexual references.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
