The review of this Movie prepared by Brandon Swenson

This is a horrible and disturbing movie that I wouldn't recommend to anyone. It revolves around a psychopathic doctor who abducts young women and then tortures and kills them--online, while web surfers watch. The only problem is, once viewers go to the website, they die within a few days, and what they die from just happens to be their greatest fear--whatever that might be. For example, a man who is terrified of dying in a car accident does just that. A women who is extremely arachnophobic is driven to jump out of her high-rise window (to her death) to escape an invasion of bugs.

The two "good guys" of this movie, both involved in law enforcement/public safety, end up figuring out what's happening, however, they have to visit the website in order to find the doctor, who is holding a woman hostage, preparing to torture and kill her online.
