So this horror is condemned by many for taking a really good and quite original idea and choosing to use so many cliches. It is also very hypocritical in that it's message is against Horror Movies, Torture Porn (Both real and the horror movie sub genre), Snuff Footage, Shock Sites and Content. I actually liked it a lot, despite it's bad reputation. It has a pretty good idea and quite frankly, the cliches are easy to ignore, seeing as if it didn't have those cliches it would be less realistic and entertaining (I think, I could be wrong) and the message doesn't matter much so long as it entertains.

It sets off when the cyber cops are given a tip for a site called "KillWithMe.com" which shows up as your average run of the mill made to look scary site, consisting of a black background, a fucked up skull X-Ray, large text of the site name, a random number. The killer streams live footage via the site, featuring a chat box where viewers can interact and where the killer can occasionally talk back (Though he talks rarely and in small words). When he is streaming the content an enter button appears on the homepage.

The killer rigs up contraptions to his computer, that slowly and painfully kill his victims, the more people view the faster they die. It has a definite saw like feel to the torture devices he uses. His website uses bots to constantly change the server, IPs, ISPNs, domain servers and details and running mirrors to make it impossible to block the site permanently and the guy is a master hacker, also working in foreign countries



A spoiler complaints.
Spoiler:

Compared to the three previous contraptions, where it was not only extremely brutal, but almost impossible for the person to escape and genius in design, the final video was terrible, tedious, non-progressive, extremely easy to escape and a convenient number of ways of avoiding your fate. She is tied by her leg and lowered into an electric soil tiller which could easily be moved out of the way, she could also swing to avoid it, or bend up to let herself free or swing and grab hold of something, other than her legs being tied to hoist her up, she was in no other way bound.

It holds up inconsistent that he didn't think about these things, when in the previous 3 he had completely immobilized his victims by binding there arms and legs, in one of them he even seals the guys arms and legs into the ground using cement.

I saw this. Enjoyable, yes, but also yeah I felt like it was a bit of a mash of a bunch of different ideas into one that could have probably been taken a bit further in some ways but an overall decent film I suppose.

In short, I agree. I seem to be easier to entertain than most, but I still like it. I do feel it could have definitely gone further and the end wash rushed and thoughtless. I would have preferred a deeper storyline too. I feel horror movies have become shorter and shorter and it's not as good. I can quite easily sit through 150-250 long films so long as they're good. Not to say they should be needlessly long, but they should make it long enough to pack everything the film needs into it. This film is a pretty good example.
