Putting perverts, Internet webcams, and pretty foreigners together is just asking for trouble, but especially if you drop them all into the seedy underbelly of Bangkok. That’s what happens in director Joel Soisson’s “Cam2Cam.” Soisson, for a while there, was the go-to guy for direct-to-DVD horror sequels, having helmed two “Prophecy” and two “Pulse” sequels. If you’ve never any of those movies, don’t worry, most people haven’t, either.
“Cam2Cam” looks pretty bloody, and once again reminds me why I have my computer’s camera permanently disabled. (Or at least, I think I do…)
In this dark and haunting thriller, Five Bangkok tourists have gone missing after making online contact with an unknown party. Newly-arrived Allie Westbrook meets a pair of ex-pats, Michael and Marit, who perform on a provocative interactive website. The dark menace beneath Michael’s easy charm and the strange magnetism of the group’s leader, Marit, drive Allie to the brink of madness. In a city where foreigners come to re-invent themselves, Allie learns, too late, that nothing is what it seems.
Starring Tammin Sursok, Ben Wiggins, Sarah Bonrepaux, Jade Tailor, and Russell Geoffrey Banks.
In Theaters & On Demand August 22nd.
