Panic Button - synopsis


"Four young people win a trip of a lifetime to New York, courtesy of their favourite social-networking website - All2gethr.com. As they board the private jet, they are asked to relinquish their mobile phones and take part in the in-flight entertainment - a new online gaming experience.  

But this is no ordinary game. Trapped at 30,000 feet, they are forced to play for their lives and the lives of their loved ones by their invisible captor, who seems to all know their
most intimate secrets.    

With no escape and no one to trust, they are about to learn that putting your life on-line can have deadly offline consequences…"

 

Why we made it

Like the best horror films, Panic Button holds up a mirror to society and taps into current social fears; we're talking about internet identity theft, social media crime, cyber bullying, peer pressure and child abduction. Not only that but we're taking these edgy topics and containing our drama in an almost a real-time situation, 30,000 feet up in the air isolated from the rest of the world. Anybody fearful about online security with a phobia of flying should steer well clear!

 

Whilst we feel that we have created a fresh, exciting, dramatic and original story, we made an early decision to operate quite firmly within familiar horror/thriller genre trappings, in order to ensure commercial appeal.

 

Throughout the projects development we heard of increasingly horrific news stories about elaborate pranks, assaults, abductions, murders  and child abuse cases all enabled through social networking platforms. The villain of the Panic Button story operates through a fictitious social networking website (all2gethr.com) and is both victim and perpetrator of the most heinous online behavior.

 

It was our intention that the situations and moral implications portrayed within the film will strike a chord with parents, young people and most users of internet technologies. It is sure to spark discussion amongst viewers by presenting a message that may even cause them to reassess their own online behavior.
