Plot Outline:

When a 17-year-old brutally murdered three classmates in the small town of Cohasset, Massachusetts and uploaded the deed to the Internet, it rocked the world. Through legal action the parents, and town, were spared the horror and infamy but bootleg copies exist and the legend of "The Cohasset Snuff Film" remains.l -- Chris Kavan

Reminds me of Man Bites Dog updated for the social networking era but losing much of the biting satire that made it so memorable. Stephen Wu (who plays the main killer) does make a convincing sociopath - though the death scenes were a lot more tame (and don't be fooled by the box art - it never gets anywhere near that gory). The film, much like Natural Born Killers, shows our obsession with death and how we glamorize killers - and even shames us for watching it - but I wish it would have gone deeper. Not bad for a low-budget effort, but I wanted more.
