Panic Button movie novelization
Have you read the Terms and Conditions?
Four young people win a trip of a lifetime to New York, courtesy of their favorite social-networking website – All2gethr.com. On board the private jet, they are invited to take part in the in-flight entertainment – a new online gaming experience. But this is no ordinary game. Trapped at 30,000 feet and forced to play for their lives and the lives of their loved ones by their mysterious captor, they are about to learn that putting your life online can have deadly offline consequences…
In Panic Button, Frazer Lee explores timely fears about online privacy and security, cyber bullying and identity theft. Based upon the screenplay of the film praised as “The Social Network of shocks” by FrightFest’s Alan Jones, this taut thriller holds a mirror up to our plugged-in society – and compels us to peer behind the online personas that hide our true selves.
