A fun little meta-horror. The societal critique is only skin-deep, the performances are borderline and some parts are a bit too heavy on the wink-wink-nudge-nudge, but there are some fun little twists here, and fame-whoring social media poses are thankful victims when there's a layer of dark comedy present.

Jess uses her social account to highlight people using sketchy ads for luring others into their perversions. She keeps her victims anonymous, but an error reveals the identity of her latest find, triggering the video to go viral. Sometime later she agrees to co-write an erotic thriller, which seems like easy money.

The film is a little rough around the edges, but there are a lot of things that work and it's always nice to see a film try to do something new. I also appreciated the open ending, which works as a perfect conversation starter for people wanting to discuss the film. There's room for improvement, but I had a lot of fun with this one.
