A provocative and compelling REAR WINDOW for the Internet generation, this enjoyably creepy, ingeniously scary and sobering horror is recounted entirely via computer screen images. Graduate student Elizabeth has received a college grant to study the habits of webcam chat users from the apparent safety of her apartment. The website she chooses to scrutinise is The Den and surfing through the usual plethora of jokesters, time-wasters, flashers and scammers, is shocked to hit on footage of a woman being tortured and killed. The police think the brutal murder is a clever fake so she turns to her boyfriend and tech-savvy best friend to try and ascertain the true facts. However it soon becomes apparent the killer is on to his witness as he hacks into her computer and proceeds to mess with her life. Soon Elizabeth is immersed in a nightmare and her loved ones are targeted for grisly fates.
