Young sociologist Elizabeth undertakes important research – getting acquainted in one of Internet video chats, it finds out that pushes people on search of friends in the Network that them involves in imaginary anonymity and than they are ready to share with strangers. Traveling on open spaces of the chat filled with silly teenagers and any perverts, Lise will come across strange video – on the screen the young girl perishes. The police considers a roller as draw, but since that moment as Elizabeth saw it, her life abruptly changed – friends and girlfriends disappear, houses appear strangers, the Network ceased to be cover – Lise now clearly …
For a basis of idea of a site on which the main character conducts polls, it is taken well-known the "Chat roulette", thought up and started in the Network the Moscow school student Andrey Ternovskim in November, 2009
During an era when to the world the facts of continually open that computer shadowing is conducted almost for each visitor of the Internet, the World wide web said goodbye long ago to an aura of independence and a rank of «the New Best World». Now it is rather frightening chasm only from above "covered" with a thin layer of our acquaintances and friends, dig slightly more deeply, and maniacs and perverts, intelligence services and cyberterrorists, at the best – idiots and idlers will outside be tumbled down. The wave of such change of mood in relation to the Internet should turn back a film embodiment. Here only as the few understand principles of functioning of Internet communication, so to not all can explain irrational fear of the Network and furthermore to embody it in a screen horror.
Perhaps, the main trouble of the films similar «Death in the Network», consists that authors not always imagine, than to continue successful, in their opinion, a picture outset. "Death", as well as it is necessary to an unpretentious technological horror, on the first minutes offers unusual video language (all events on the screen are shown only via chambers of gadgets or the video surveillance chamber – reception not new, but still working) and takes straight away. However the good beginning – a half put only in sayings. At cinema is also timing which at "Death" and is so insignificant, but also it is necessary to fill it with something. Here only ideas at authors come to an end approximately by twentieth minute.
About any worthy special attention to actor’s game in the film speech, of course, cannot be conducted. And not because heroes any especially wooden, simply the format does not provide demonstration of talents – the actor or stupidly stares in the monitor, or represents usual life, casually getting to a shot. And as all emotions traditionally hide behind kilobytes of hindrances and in the dark, to judge shown fear it is possible only on own feelings, instead of on characters. Not the best decision for a horror film.
For director Zakhari Donokhyyu the film is a debut, and here featured actress Melanie Papalia was already lit in several popular series like «Secrets Smolvillya» and "Supernatural"
In details of a plot and an "outcome" detail (and after all as an outcome authors consider that heap which is not too gracefully heaped up by them at the end) we will not press, to tell only enough that actions both a "kind" half of heroes, and "malicious" seldom give in to a rational explanation, and the ending and is at all hopelessly merged. To this sort of thrillers/horrors there are two final ways more – or to tell all idea of villains, having brought for occurring on the screen any let weak, but a basis as it was made, for example, in "Shout", or completely to be discharged of attempts to offer any logic explanation to the events, frightening of inexplicability, ghosts, the artificial intelligence which is out for blood, the parallel worlds, as the same «The paranormal phenomenon».« The death in the Network» decided to spread reality straws under the inevitable falling, but it is so ridiculous that will shut eyes the last minutes of the film the best decision for the viewer respecting.
