The lead performers are mainly notable for their supple, toned bodies, which are frequently revealed in various states of undress.
The film was given a simultaneous VOD and limited theatrical release on August 22, 2014, and stars Tammin Sursok as a tourist that becomes the target of a serial killer after logging on to a cam website.
It's all largely incoherent, with the screenplay's twists and surprise revelations having an utterly artificial feel.
Director Soisson, who so adeptly staged the galvanizing opening scene, becomes further and further adrift in terms of navigating the preposterous storyline.
“If spookhouse immersion is your horror-flick bottom line, you’ll relish AT THE DEVIL’S DOOR,” said Alan Scherstuhl of The Village Voice.
Wrote Aisle Seat’s Mike Mc Granaghan, “Containing some genuinely gutsy, unexpected twists, [the film] cheerfully plays with your expectations, pulling the rug out from under you whenever it damn well pleases.”What happens when the virtual world and the real world collide, and the people on the other side of the screen you thought you were safe from turn out to be dangerously close?
There she meets beautiful French lesbian Marit (Sarah Bonrepaux) and intense Brit Michael (Ben Wiggins), who both immediately begin vying for her affections.
The labyrinthine plotline begins spinning in circles while the body count rises, and Allie at one points finds herself striding down a busy street bloodied and wielding an axe.
Rather than getting the authorities involved, Allie has decided that she needs to head over herself and investigate what might have happened. Marit points her towards a website, cam2and bids her goodnight. As with any indie movie (or movie in general) some are better than others. The writers spent too much time focusing on confusing the viewer into thinking one thing while trying to add a "twist" and make it seem as though things were the complete opposite the whole time. The story comes off confusing without any explanation as to why certain things happen or what motivates the killer. Has some mid point plot spoilers, but not the ending Cam2cam is NOT a hand held genre.
squanders its potentially rich if hardly underexposed technology-themed premise with a tired, twist-filled mystery plot involving mostly uninteresting characters. It begins promisingly, however, with an extended opening sequence that at least briefly will have viewers on the edge of their seats.
Lucy (Jade Tailor), a young American woman staying in Bangkok—a city that is cinematic shorthand for depravity — logs onto to the titular website late at night and begins a flirtatious conversation with a woman, seen only from the neck down, who promptly begins taking off her clothes.
Curious, Allie logs on and soon discovers that there was a serial killer that used Cam2Cam to find his female victims, one of whom was staying in Allie's current room.
After fellow boarder Marit (Sarah Bonrepaux) is murdered, Allie begins to worry that she is next on the serial killer's list.
Twitch Film also panned the movie, praising the cinematography and gore while writing that "in the end, the crummy dialogue, the naive approach to technology, and the squandering of its many opportunities become too obvious to be overlooked".
