#Horror 2015 - REVIEW
IMDb... Six preadolescent girls, Sam (Sadie Seelert), Georgie (Emma Adler), Sofia (Bridget McGarry), Francesca (Mina Sundwall) Cat (Haley Murphy) and Ava (Blue Lindeberg) face a night of terror when the compulsive addiction of an online social media game turns a moment of cyber bullying into a night of insanity.
Misleading the audience with inaccurate plots seems to be all the rage today. Getting it a bit off is one thing but flat out getting it wrong is another. Other than some emoticons flashing across the screen and some implied picture postings I saw nothing that indicated there was a "game" being played. In fact, half way through the movie, all the girls put their phones in a safe so they would actually be able to interact with each other. Why I don't know because this was the most detestable bunch of girls I have ever seen in a movie. They made Mean Girls look like a day at the park. Believe me, there was plenty of bullying, but it wasn't really cyber bullying so that is definitely misleading. There is no depth to #Horror. It's not a social experiment and it doesn't shine a light on anything other than my growing disgust for Indie horror.
Timothy Hutton, oh Timothy, I am so displeased that someone so seasoned could read this script and say, "YES! I need to be a part of that!" I hope he was well paid because there is little doubt that he will get a career boost out of this one.
