Welcome to the twenty-fourth day of October! I hope that your year has been going well. If you have been with me a while, you will know that every year I attempt to watch a lot of scary movies for October mostly to cure myself of my wariness of scary movies. When I started this series several years ago, I could barely sit through a scary movie to save my life. Now since doing this series I can say that I am much better. Last year, I decided to attempt to add books to this series. Unfortunately, I didn’t end up completing this series last year, but I have high hopes for this year 😉
On this 25th day of October we are going to be reviewing the movie Cam. This is a 2018 horror, thriller that came as a recommendation of Netflix. If you have been with me a while you know that I have quite the sordid history with Netflix recommendations but here we are again.
The premise of the story is that a girl named Alice works as cam girl on a website under the alias Lola. As Alice popularity increases slowly to her dismay and definitely not fast enough for her. One night Alice breaks into the top 50 on the site and the next day her account gets hacked and begins broadcasting without her actually doing so. All the while this is happening she has taken on this gig and not told her mother the truth about how she makes her money and when her secret comes out at her brother’s birthday party Alice is embarassed.
I won’t spoil the whole movie for you, but i will tell you that as intriguing as this movie was. It wasn’t scary and I think I’m finally done with taking recommendations from Netflix regarding scary movies.
Let me know if you have seen this movie or heard about it and what you thought of it. I would love to hear your thoughts. Stay tuned for more posts as we wind down the final days until Halloween. See you soon!
