A secret service agent, Jennifer Marsh, gets caught in a very personal and deadly cat-and-mouse game with a serial killer who knows that people (being what they are - both curious and drawn to the dark side of things) will log onto an "untraceable" website where he conducts violent and painful murders LIVE on the net. The more people who log on and enter the website, the quicker and more violently the victim dies.

Did You Know?

Trivia:
The site used by the killer (www.killwithme.com) actually exists. It's owned by the movie studio and it's used to promote the movie. In it, users are taken to a replica of the FBI computer used by the character Jennifer Marsh. Her desktop gets hacked by the killer who provides the visitor with four test he/she must complete to deactivate his site.

Goofs:
Continuity: In the scene where Marsh is describing how the killer penetrated her wireless network, she launches the "Horsez" game on her daughter's computer. The taskbar clearly belongs to Windows XP, but the window that pops up is styled like a Vista Aero window.

Quotes:
Agent Jennifer Marsh: You forming a task force?
Detective Eric Box: Not yet.
Agent Jennifer Marsh: Not yet? How much more do you need?
Richard Brooks: What we have so far is one dead cat and a man who may or may not be in danger.
Agent Jennifer Marsh: That's today. You think this is it? It's just the beginning!



User Review

Good enough to be worth your while, probably not to own.

Rating: 6/10

The movie had a few things going in its favor. For one, it used reasonable technology and background, so the story wasn't far-fetched. Secondly, and most importantly in my eyes, it did NOT go for shock value. It didn't try to use gore to elicit a reaction from the crowd. Not to say that some scenes weren't rough on the eyes, but it was far from a Saw or Hostel. Thirdly, it honestly kept me on the edge of my seat for a good portion of the movie. And lastly, the ending does not drag itself out. It ends at the logical point.

That having been said, this movie will not change your life. It's a little bit of a commentary on society, but moreso, it's just an entertaining movie to watch.
