Internet Traffic KILLS

O!M!G! The movie Untraceable was MADE FOR YOU, ME, AND ALL OF OUR FRIENDS. The plot: a murderer is killing people via website metrics. YOUR HEARD ME! People visit a website that is livestreaming a murder -- an increase in traffic speeds up the process of death. The trailer (WATCH NOW!) is full of such wonderful quotes as "The more people who visit the site, the faster he bleeds" and "Any American who visits the site is an accomplice to murder" and "We ARE the murder weapon." As far as I know, this has nothing to do with Gawker's new pay structure.


This movie is going to be HUGE.

I like that they simply can't trace where the bad guy is broadcasting from. HE'S UNTRACEABLE.

God damn it, they totally stole my new blog idea! All right, guess I've got to go release all those people now. Are apologies in order?

I was more than a little disappointed to see Diane Lane in this one.

Finally, someone gets the artistic balls to tell Silicon Valley, "Who the fuck do you think you are?" Genius. You guys could use some deflating.

And after the victim dies, a new MP3 Blog launches!

Actually...Diane Lane aside..."it's her partner that's the killer...duh" aside...doesn't look all that bad
