10. Movie Title: Megan is Missing (2011)
Megan Stewart and Amy Herman are best friends, who engage in social online web chats. When Megan meets the charming Josh in a chat room, they bond instantly. When they agree to meet each other in person, Megan goes missing, and Amy goes on a search to find her. She soon finds out that Josh is not so charming and innocent.
“Megan is Missing” is one of those films where you have to repeat to yourself; “It’s only a movie”. Especially with the way its shown. Despite the film depicting that it’s based on a true story, the film itself is fictitious. I’ve done research on the film. In no way doe this have any resemblance to the true story whatsoever. And, if meant to be inspired by the true story, director Michael Goi, did a horrible job in that aspect.
Fun Fact: In October 2011, the New Zealand Censorship Board (OFLC) banned Anchor Bay’s release of this film. The board classified it as ‘Objectionable’. They claimed that it contained sexual violence and sexual conduct involving young people. The footage was to such an extent and degree, and in such a manner that if it released it would be ‘injurious to the public good’.
