Plot:

As freshman Brian (Jordan Ver Hoeve) checks into his dorm room, he discovers a thumb drive that includes files of a former student dorm resident and webcam model interacting with clients. He is shocked to discover that the last webcam session ends in what may be a murder.

Brian soon becomes obsessed with unravelling the story, but his quest becomes complicated when he falls for his roommate, who is already taken. The mysterious disappearance of the webcam model takes on a dangerous voyeuristic tone when the love triangle finds their lives being manipulated and blackmailed…

Reviews:

“The mystery doesn’t entirely play fair, not that it’s interesting enough to entice one into sticking with this. The acting is pretty bad, and there’s a general unpleasantness to the proceedings that makes the film a video equivalent chastity belt.” 1/4 Movie Nation
