It's a trap

It's harrowing .. the way it starts ... now of course, watching this and reading what is happening in a chat, you have the time to reflect, you hopefully also have the notion to understand that this is ... a rabbit hole or whatever you want to call it. You know the girl is digging her own hole by "accepting" the premises and just going with what she is supposed to do - to not be exposed ... it is really horrific, what some people are able to do (and get away with).

This is a documentary about the dangers of the internet and how things (data) can be easily accessed or stolen. The important thing is not to shame and/or blame the victims. We all have done things and mistakes at some point in our lives. The way those "mistakes" get exploited here is really shameful.

As are not just those who shared and made girls do things that should be private. Or only made public if it is consensual. Which nothing here is. We don't see anything explicit (things get blurred to protect the victims or whistleblowers) and that is more than ok.

What is anything but ok: all the people who participated (knowingly) in this sick little group and not only paid for the suffering of others, but relished in it ... did this go anywhere? Did anyone actually was being accountable? If you don't already know how this "resolved" (I didn't) the documentary is here to answer those questions.

It may be a bit too long, but it does work overall ... even if it is anything but an easy watch.

This is the best Internet topic in a while. A must watch for every teenager and for parents. Don't miss this. Watch as soon as possible without thinking twice.

Insightful documentary piece on a sickening case! [ 71%]

After Don't F*ck with Cats and The Tinder Swindler, Cyber Hell is yet another Netflix documentary that delves into serious cybercrimes. The victim list of this cyber-sexual abuse scandal is pretty huge, and the fact that young women and children are majorly involved makes it difficult for the creators of this piece to paint the complete picture. It is told primarily from the perspective of the media and some ethical hackers who spent months investigating the crimes and tracking down the key perpetrators - Baksa and GodGod.

It is worth mentioning that the documentary is 60% sickening with all its immersive details (of the crime) and 40% thrilling with its investigative actions. The documentary never veers off course, focusing on the insights offered by the relevant people being interviewed (including a journalist who was also subjected to cyber harassment). The stylistic choices employed in the piece are acceptable, given it talks about the digital world and its eerie side. Texts are typed out as they are, apps are explored on the go, and location maps are shared for a greater geographical understanding. Cyber Hell is best watched without reading much about the case, as it offers the feeling of proceedings unfolding in real-time.
