Cam never figures out how to be both sexploitation and something else entirely.
August 7, 2019
The movie's nightmarish quest for Alice to assert and establish her true identity is the stuff of all our darknesses, but the digital design and the focus on alluring sex workers gives it an odd, unique spin.

All in all, I found CAM to be a tightly wound thriller that kept me guessing throughout its entire runtime.
June 14, 2019
The script has a lot to say about the fear of being alone, the act of voyeurism, and the loss of identity, but it also works as a twisty mind-bender of a thriller -- thanks in large part to the stellar performance(s) by Madeline Brewer.
May 19, 2019
A compelling update of a B-movie storyline featuring a strong lead performance that fails to stick the landing.

May 18, 2019
Blurs the line between sex-positive self-fulfillment and a sacrifice on the altar of male fantasy, a coy maneuver that threatens to derail an otherwise effective piece of paranoiac horror.
April 28, 2019
Cam is a cautionary tale about the postmodern digital landscape where bodies are commodities for sale at the click of a mouse.

There's more than a little David Lynch influence at play here, but Goldhaber handles the material expertly, as evidenced by his award for Best First Feature at Fantasia 2018 (not to be outdone, Isa Mazzei's screenplay also received honors).

April 1, 2019
Both Mazzei and Brewer are at their best, and Cam at its most unsettling, when they explore how an economy of loneliness fuels the frightening appearance of an online double that threatens Alice's life and livelihood.
March 9, 2019
Cam offers few answers as to the nature of the film's malevolence but it does an excellent job of demonstrating the stigmas that sex workers face even in the digital world.

March 2, 2019
One of the hottest horror movies on this year's genre festival circuit.
February 26, 2019
A gripping and consistently visually engaging thriller that delves deep into provocative subject matter to play on emotions that any viewer can relate to.

'Cam' breathes the air of a classic thriller, but speaks in a language that only addicts to new technologies will understand. [Full Review in Spanish]

January 29, 2019
Cam, much like 2017's Get Out, is a reminder of horror's potential for fostering awareness and understanding. And it works-we root for Alice all the way to the end.
January 16, 2019
CAM will suck you in, chew you up, and spit you out. But, be warned: once you hit play, you'll need plenty of time post-credits to do your own digesting.
January 16, 2019
The film is very interesting presenting a daring theme especially in regards to the horror of losing your life on the internet. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 3, 2019
Horror, at its best, reconstructs the formula of the genre and reflects what frightens us in a particular moment. Simply put, Cam is about the terror of getting locked out of your online accounts and losing your manufactured identity.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
December 27, 2018
Devilishly well-constructed with plenty of chilling twists and turns, Cam is a modern day De Palma-esque techno-thriller that elevates above standard Black Mirror fare through clever direction and a committed lead performance.

December 27, 2018
Today's society feels a certain cynicism towards the world explored in Cam, but it's no match for the terror caused by something inimaginable and improbable.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
December 20, 2018
A psychological thriller, a horror tale about today's technology, a woman-empowering knockout punch...Cam works on many levels besides being a tour de force visceral experience.
