Panic Button (2011)

Four unsuspecting members of the All2gether social networking site board a plane headed for New York, where they must survive several revealing rounds of trivia if they hope to win big cash and prizes upon their arrival. Each new question uncovers another dark secret that the contestants have been hiding in their virtual lives, and the failure to answer correctly has deadly consequences for their online friends! PANIC BUTTON is a perfectly-timed strike against modern technology that exposes the risks and vulnerabilities of living life in the public eye. While the characters and events are extremely exaggerated, the underlying message regarding personal privacy serves as a harsh wake-up call for internet users. What begins as an intense psychological thriller unfortunately trails off into a bland struggle for survive that follows the blueprint laid out in SAW. For Horror on a budget, however, PANIC BUTTON packs enough violence and suspense to earn itself a passing grade.

Rating: 7/10.
