Internet dangers

I believe that this movie should be shown to teens because of the premise that internet predators are out there. This stuff can happen. Yes the situations and depictions can be a bit much, but its reality for some.

This title has:

Educational value

Traumatizing, Sick, scarring even to adults

This not only isn’t appropriate for children, this is significantly scarring for any sane human. The amount of torture, rape, and “real-life-recorded” horror pictured is so severe that it is physically sickening. The involvement of minors adds to the shock and disgust appeal and even as a “warning” for young adults and women everywhere about the dangers of rape and kidnapping, or even used for educational purposes despite its graphic content intentional for scare factor to make a point that these things really do happen and are serious, it’s to the degree that most humans would have trouble making it through to the end. Personally, aside from personal training for actual police officers who could go into a field where they might witness this first hand, I think this film should be banned. There is no light in which any human being should be subjected to this, especially with the realities of it being so prevalent today. All other adults I’ve know who’ve watched it have also been scarred seriously and I would not recommend watching it no matter who you are. And this isn’t even including the extensive non-violent sex scenes that portray underage girls and children performing graphic sex scenes on grown ups (with visible Nude genitalia AKA child porn) and the crazy drug use of both adults and children and all the swearing.
