| Attractively Cast Text Trauma
Over the credits, a car crash looks deadly for three people. Mature-looking high school teenager Emily Tennant (as Taylor Sinclair) wakes up in her bed. It was only a dream. Word up, it's also a flashback. Two years ago, Ms. Tennant's dad died in that nightmarish accident, along with another couple. In school, Tennant attracts cute, leather-jacketed transfer student Keenan Tracey (as Cody Williams). He drives an amazing 1971 Skylark, which is exempt from smog checks. Very quickly, both Mr. Tracey and Tennant's other high school friends are victimized by a hooded Internet bully. This person seems to know all the dirt on everyone, and has embarrassing sex videos to share with the world. This all leads to tragedy...

Tennant's widowed mother is sexy super-detective Dina Meyer (as Allison). Eventually, mom will have stuff to investigate. Even without a bullet-proof vest, she may be invulnerable. The villain "TRUTH&LIES" can't even give Ms. Meyer back pain. While handy in protecting her daughter, mom's tactics are not politically correct. In fact, they're offensive and illegal. For example, detective mom interrogates by threatening a suspect with rape or other physical abuse in a juvenile facility. If this woman knows an individual, presumed innocent, is about to be raped or otherwise assaulted, she should report it immediately. Instead, we have a character condoning the crime and using it as an interrogation tactic.

*** Text to Kill (4/11/15) George Erschbamer ~ Emily Tennant, Keenan Tracey, Dina Meyer, Kurt Ostlund

Trivia

Females in jeopardy: At about 47minutes in, Taylor is threatened by an unknown person in a vehicle. She jumps out of the way at the last second. With about 20 minutes remaining, a flashback reveals Barb was threatened by Cody/Lucas, who drugged her then ganked her by staging her hanging as a suicide. With about 18 minutes remaining, Taylor is threatened by Cody/Lucas, who grabs her and knocks her out with one punch. He later duct tapes her to a chair, and reveals his plot to gank her mom. With about xx minutes left after tape gagging Taylor, Allison is threatened by Cody/Lucas with a knife. During their fight, Taylor knocks a convenient vase off a table and uses it to free herself. With about 5 minutes remaining, Allison is threatened at gunpoint by Cody/Lucas. After he realizes Taylor has escaped, he shoots Allison in her right shoulder, using the only round in the gun (the slide locks back). Taylor then uses a convenient fireplace shovel to hit Cody/Lucas and he drops the gun. Taylor is then threatened by Cody/Lucas, who disarms her. As he is about to gank Taylor with the shovel, Allison finds her gun has conveniently landed nearby, her shoulder wound that had been bleeding seconds earlier on her gun arm has conveniently healed, and she has conveniently reloaded her gun. She shoots Cody/Lucas in the left arm, and he is subsequently arrested.


Quotes

Taylor: Please don't! Cody, no, please don't!
Cody: Killing you two will tell me there's justice in this world
Taylor: That's not justice, it's murder
Cody: I know killing you won't bring them back but it will let me sleep at night knowing I don't have to suffer any more
Taylor: ...
Taylor: No...


Goofs

Police body armor does not cover the shoulder area where Allison was shot as evidenced by the blood shown on her shoulder as she was on her back after being shot. The shot would have impaired her right (gun) arm so she would not have been able to use her gun as shown.
