A LionsGate film released on DVD this month is creeping out teens and adults alike.  It is about a teenage girl who finally meets up with a hunky 30-year-old photographer at a coffee shop after months of online chatting.

She convinces him to take her to his place to for drinks, where she will later drug and manipulate him to take obscene photos of her.

The points of view in this situation are really impressive and extremely disturbing and have never really been approached this way.   One twist leads into another.  The sadistic acting performed by this teenager will lead the audience to feel sympathy for an “innocent” pedophile, but a twist at the end will make viewers second guess themselves once again.
