Best movie ever!

FirstWitch

A movie that not only functions as a solid scarefest but a razor-sharp satire.

Excellent and certainly provocative... If nothing else, the film is a real conversation starter.

It is a whirlwind of delight --- attractive actors, stunning couture, spectacular sets and outrageous parties. It's a feast for the eyes. But what really makes this dramedy work is the acting.

Michael Boi tried to excuse this inane attempt at a movie by saying it was supposed to caution people about internet predators. This is just exploitation. A total waste of time. Who the hell calls internet video chat "webbing"?! Did the director really believe that's how teenagers talk? And supposedly he took the blowjob description "word-for-word" from interviewing a 13-year-old girl! I think the only thing he did remotely correct was to show me how to dispose of this DVD. Seal it in a plastic barrel with decayed human remains and then bury it in a shallow grave late at night. So glad they recorded every FaceTime message and their webcams were constantly recording whenever they used their computer. The "torture porn" picture that was "too disturbing" for a fetish site's webmaster could have easily been my last appointment at the orthodontist.

I think people are being a bit overreactionary and unfair with the one star ratings. Yeah, this was low budget and the script could have been better. I thought the dialogue was a little annoying and vapid but honestly, I remember a lot of my teenager talks being on the shallow side, so maybe it's an accurate portrayal. But even though it looked a bit amateur, overall I thought it did a fair-to-good job for what it set out to do while still being entertaining. The director was up front in saying he aimed to make this a warning about online predators. Given the subject matter, this could easily have been exploitative + gratuitous. I think it refrained from doing that, so kudos. I really don't agree with those who have said the "warning" theme to the movie is just an excuse to show the raping of a fourteen year old. That scene focuses only on Amy's face the entire time, and the only viewer who would see that as exciting or as anything other than heartbreaking and angering is a sociopath already, and there are many other, sicker films that they would probably "enjoy" (blech) instead of this one. That said, the movie still banks highly on suspense and cultural morbid curiosity about predators, kidnapping, sexual assault and other violence. I don't like torture porn movies, but this one is based on true accounts,(actual pictures and footage were part of the research) and I thought it important to really get a glimpse into what those victims went through. While I thought the characters a bit shallow, (and FTR I think a lot of teenagers IRL are kind of shallow) there was decent enough backstory and character development to make me care about them. As has been said by many already, the last twenty minutes are really sad and hard to watch, but it was pretty ingenious-- for instance, showing the complete last moments of Amy's life instead of abbreviating it or cutting to different scenes. Some people have complained about how tedious it was, but this wasn't meant to be an action movie. It showed what an eternal agony Amy felt. And the very last scene is just totally heartbreaking.Deal with the cringe worthy moments. This movie is worth watching.

The negative reviews are a bit harsh, the film isn't that great no and the only real suspense is in the last 20 minutes but it does get a message across So the film is based around 14 year old Megan a straight A student but has family problems at home and hides behind a life of hard partying, drug use and promiscuous sex, her best friend is Amy a social misfit deemed a fat loser at school but they have a inseparable bond. When another friend tells Megan to speak to this new online guy called Josh she agrees, typically his web cam is broken. Days after she agrees to meet him and is never seen again. Amy being a good friend is worried and knows it has something to do with Josh and has now put her self in the same danger.Some may see it as a tad extreme but unfortunately this does happen. What people are missing is their bond, these 2 girls are so different but have a special connection. Megan being popular and liked is a social acceptance for Amy, Whilst Amy's care is what Megan doesn't have but there both equally naive.

Megan is Missing is a movie that deserves any scorn that it gets. It has some truly terrible acting and some weird directing choices. It's not well-made horror; it's effective horror. Megan is Missing is about two best friends, Megan and Amy, who meet a guy online named Josh and eventually get abducted and go missing. A majority of the film is just set-up for the eventual abduction of the girls. You do get to see each girl's personalities, social lives and just everything about them. Megan is one of the most popular girls at school. She has a bunch of friends, goes out drinking, and blows random guys at parties. Amy is on the opposite end of the spectrum. She's neat, doesn't have many friends, and doesn't go out much. Watching the two go through their normal days throughout the first act makes the final act so much more disturbing. The film does slow down a bit whenever "Josh" comes into the picture, and there are these short scenes of newscasts that are almost unbearable to watch because it has the world's most aggravating news anchor. The last twenty minutes, however, becomes unbearable for a completely different reason. The ending changes Megan is Missing from a somewhat dull drama thriller into a truly harrowing experience. There's some imagery in there that will be hard to shake for days to come. This is honestly a terrible film, but when the horror is as brutal and unforgettable as this, it is still worth a watch if you can stomach the material.
