Elevator Pitch FBI cyber investigators in Portland are confronted with a site on which people who have been kidnapped are killed slowly on camera, the rate of their demise depending on the number of people viewing. As they attempt to locate the killer things get worse as members of their own team are targeted.
Content Scenes in the offices of the FBI guys as they tap keyboards and look at screens, some visits to the heroine’s house and quite a bit of time in subterranean locations watching people dying. Some tension. No nudity, sex or drinking.
A View This was generally disliked by the critics probably rightly since it did not have much to recommend it unless you are a fan of torture porn. This is as close as I have ever got to watching something which might fit into the genre and I can’t say I want to repeat the experience.
