Panic Button ★★★☆☆

This film screened at Film4's Fright Fest

UK director Chris Crow follows up his debut feature Devil's Bridge (2010) with Panic Button (2011), which screened at this year's Film4 FrightFest. When four strangers meet for the first time at an airport, they all seem very familiar with each other. Having each won a free trip to New York through their membership to the Facebook-inspired '', revelations begin to emerge about the details they’ve garnered from the profiles of their fellow competition winners.

Soon after boarding the opulent private jet that will transport them to their destination the onboard entertainment begins in the shape of a quiz based on the group’s online habits. The initial alcohol fuelled atmosphere of unbridled excitement soon starts to turn sour as what seems like a little bit of fun to while away the hours soon evolves into something much more sinister.
