Video chatting is no doubt an incredible advancement in technology that is a very useful tool and for many it has become an alternate way to communicate. It also provides a frightening setting for a Horror movie as we saw with 2012's psychological slasher flick SMILEY. From IFC Midnight and director Zach Donahue comes the next online terror film THE DEN. The trailer for the movie looks really good and sparks curiosity for sure. Check it out below.
THE DEN stars Melanie Papalia, Adam Shapiro, David Schlactenhaufen, and Matt Riedy.
"After receiving a grant for her graduate thesis, Elizabeth Benton (Melanie Papalia) logs onto a video-chat site known as THE DEN, on a mission to explore the habits of its users. During one of her random video-chats, Elizabeth watches in horror as a teenage girl is gruesomely murdered in front of her webcam.
While the police dismiss it as a viral prank, Elizabeth believes what she saw is real and takes it upon herself to find the truth. Her life quickly spirals out of control as she gets pulled deeper into the darkest recesses of the internet. And eventually, Elizabeth finds herself trapped in a twisted game in which she and her loved ones are targeted for the same grisly fate as the first victim."
THE DEN on VOD and in limited theaters this March 14th.
