Megan Is Missing is huge on TikTok.
The 2011 found-footage horror film, which was banned in New Zealand for objectionable content amid heavy criticism for its subject matter, is gaining a resurgence thanks to renewed interest and discussion from TikTok users.
Here’s a plot summary: “Fourteen-year-old Megan and her best friend Amy spend a lot of time on the internet, posting videos of themselves and chatting with guys online. One night Megan chats with a guy named Josh who convinces her to meet him for a date. The next day, Megan is missing—forever. Based on actual cases of child abduction, this thriller will keep you riveted, as you realize how easy it is to fall victim to harm in this technological age.”
Writer-director Michael Goi got on TikTok to issue a statement.
“I got a text from Amber Perkins, the lead actress in my movie, that it’s exploding on TikTok at the moment. I didn’t get to give you the customary warnings that I used to give people before they watched Megan Is Missing, which are: do not watch the movie in the middle of the night, do not watch the movie alone, and if you see the words “Photo No. 1″ pop up on your screen, you have about four seconds to shut off the movie if you’re already kind of freaking out before you start seeing things that maybe you don’t want to see. Apologies to those who are already posting about how the movie is already freaked them out. Fair warning to those of you who are still contemplating watching the film,” he said.
