On January 14th, 2007, 14-year-old Megan Stewart disappeared. Three weeks later, her 13-year-old best friend Amy Herman also vanished. Assembled from video chats, webcam footage, home videos and news reports, this is what happened in the days immediately before, and after, Megan went missing.
So, I decided to watch this movie last night called 'Megan is Missing.' The synopsis on Netflix was fairly vague and I was going to watch 'Paranormal Activity 2' but my fellow movie watcher complained SO 'Megan is Missing' it was. Umm, I don't know how I feel about this movie. And I'm not sure if it's really even a horror movie but it scared me. It freaked me out, felt me leaving disturbed and just....I don't know. And I also haven't been able to stop thinking about 3 particular parts in said movie since I watched it. Actually, I was in the shower today and I was tripping out because I started thinking about it and got scared....HA! I really did, terrible! The thing is, 'Megain is Missing' isn't scary...it's not like creepy ghosts or anything. What makes it so disturbing and scary is the thought. The reality that's behind it. It freaked me out and I can't stop thinking about it. It's like...burned into my cerebral cortex.
Any who, this movie starts off very strange. And I really almost turned it off because I was like "WTF IS THIS??????" lol. But, I decided to keep watching because it's better than a 20 minute discussion over what else to watch. So this movie is about a girl name Megan and her friend Amy...I think it was Amy. Anyways, they meet this online person, Megan goes missing and yeah. It doesn't sound interesting but the last 20 minutes of this movie is KILLER. I mean, it's terribly disgusting to have to hear 14 year old girls talk about what these girls talked about, but just sit through it! Listen to the whole story. You have to like...go with it and pay attention to notice the creepy things a happening. haha.
So, I don't know what to rate this movie. I've been debating about it since I watched it. Partially because it disturbed me on a level that isn't right. It scared me. I am scared. But, it was executed in a weird way. At first I thought it was these girls talking on webcam all the time. Then I realized that it was probably just phone calls but it's a movie, so they had to do something there...get it? It's not that long of a movie so you should watch it. Just to get that creep-ed out sketchy feeling that I have right now. Ugh!
My rating: 3/5
My oh my, I decided to watch this movie tonight after reading my colleague's review..and let me tell you this. I agree 100%, this is a freaky movie. The last 25 minutes gave me such feelings, like anxiety, chills, frights and horror. While it claims to be based on real live events...it sure does leave somethings to consider. This could happen. How many times, do you find yourself on the computer talking to someone you don't know.People meet others online all the time. There were a few scenes in particular that have been burnt into my mind, like Ginger said. The effects of these two scenes are well done. Being a fan of "The Blair Witch Project", it's that type of movie. Could it be real? Could it be fake? It keeps the viewer guessing.
I want to thank Ginger for doing this review, because without it, I would never of heard of this movie. It does have that major creep factor, and for that I am going to give it a gruesome 4/5.
