Adapted from his own play by
screenwriter Enda Walsh, this macabre cyber-thriller stars
Aaron Johnson as William, a charismatic outsider who creates an intimate internet chatroom where guests are hand-picked for membership. On the surface, William is your standard sulky teenage rebel, dismissive of both his rich author mother and authority in general. But what his new online friends don't realise is that he is also a dangerous and damaged individual who has chosen them for their character flaws and is manipulating them all, culminating in an effort to force one of them into suicide. Johnson shines as this amoral Pied Piper, and his sinister mission gives rise to some truly disturbing moments. Sadly, these plausible chills are offset by the film's clumsy youth-movie trimmings, which, through lurid visuals and ripe overacting by its largely unknown support cast, drain most of the suspense and interest from what what was clearly intended as a provocative morality tale.
An author's embittered and rebellious son sets up an internet chatroom, where he provides emotional support for other troubled teenagers. The visitors share their secrets with him, but do not realise he is planning to use the information to manipulate and drive them to suicide. Thriller, with Aaron Johnson and Imogen Poots.
