Have you ever wanted to watch a movie so depraved and disappointing that you would want to constantly yell at the screen? If you have then this is the movie for you.
MEGAN IS MISSING is all about a fifteen year old girl, named Megan, who goes missing, and how soon after her best friend, fourteen year old Amy, also disappears. Megan is a rambunctious and really very sad, teenage girl who does what she can to find love. She even states in the movie she will do anything with a guy as long as he tells her that he loves her. Megan has a horrendous home life, as her mother's husband, and her stepfather sits in prison for raping her from ages nine to eleven. Her mother blames Megan for it, and Megan has no one to turn to besides Amy.
One day Megan is introduced to a guy online, who she believes is a young teen boy named, Josh. The movie goes quickly downhill from there.
If you weren't afraid for your children using the internet and going on any sort of social media, after watching this movie you will be. Megan disappears, as the movie title would suggest. Soon after her best friend, Amy, disappears, and we find out later what has happened to both.
I thought I was going to be watching a different type of movie, not a movie with a message. This movie seems to be all about the dangers of not watching your teenager, as most of the teens in the movie are having unprotected sex, forcing people to have sex with them, drinking, having sex with older me for drugs, and telling the sweet virgin that she should just do it, and get it over with. When Megan disappears as a viewer I was not surprised, as I expected it to happen (and not just because the title of the movie is MEGAN IS MISSING).
I did not expect the ending of the movie, which was sad, and a little heartbreaking as there is most likely some truth in it, and in what happened. In this day and age of online meetups and befriending people who you don't actually know, everyone should be careful as to who they chat with and not meet up with anyone you don't know, at least not alone and not in a place where there won't be others around.
Every parent should watch this, and watch it to the end, because that could be your child. It might be uncomfortable to watch, but honestly it should be. I know eight and ten year olds who are on Snapchat and Facebook, and it is not a safe world for teens and kids on the internet, it isn't exactly a safe world for adults like me.
I thought I was going to be watching a straight up horror movie, but it wasn't, however it was a horror movie of a different nature.
