Released:

Rating:
R
Untraceable is a 2008 crime-thriller. The film follows special agent Jennifer Marsh (Diane Lane) who works the night shift in the FBI's cybercrime division with partner Griffin Dowd (Colin Hanks). By day she is the widowed mother of her daughter Annie Haskins (Perla Haney-Jardine). Set in Portland, Oregon the story quickly dives into action when a website, killwithme.com, streams a video of a defenseless kitten being tortured and killed. Every time the FBI tries to shut down the site a mirror site reappears within seconds. The kitten was just the first step, a test. Soon the site escalates to a series of horrific human murders. It is evident there is a cyber serial killer on the loose. The catch is, he never lays a hand on the victims. Instead, the killer rigs the people to contraptions that variably kill the victim based on how many people visit the site. The more people visit, the faster the person dies. At first, the victims seem randomly chosen, but as the trail becomes more and more personal, Jennifer uncovers the startling truth of the webmaster's (Joseph cross) grand plan.moreless

    Unfolding like a better-than-average episode of a first-rate TV police procedural, Untraceable is a satisfying slice of solidly crafted meat-and-potatoes filmmaking.

    You may view Untraceable, as I do, as a repugnant example of the voyeurism it pretends to condemn.
