(2018) (Colin Woodell, Stephanie Nogueras) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- 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.

- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
