One of the biggest surprises this year was Daniel Goldhaber‘s tech-driven psychological thriller, Cam, which Netflix snuck onto their streaming service last month. Written by Isa Mazzei and set in the world of webcam porn, the “Black Mirror”-esque metaphor for identity theft has gained tremendous support in the horror community, especially by the likes of Stephen King.
While the film doesn’t really call for a sequel, producer Jason Blum is open to exploring another story. When asked about a followup, he exclaimed, “I’d love to make one!”
If they did, I’d love to see breakout actress Madeline Brewer return, although I’m not sure how you continue her story (we’ll leave that to the writers). In the film, she plays Alice, an ambitious camgirl, who wakes up one day to discover she’s been replaced on her show with an exact replica of herself. As this copy begins to push the boundaries of Alice’s internet identity, the control that Alice has over her life, and the men in it, vanishes. While she struggles to regain what she’s lost, she slowly finds herself drawn back to her show and to the mysterious person who has taken her place.
“CAM is the rare film about sex work openly written by a sex worker, and is an authentic, immersive dive into the world of internet performance and webcam pornography,” explained a previous press release. The trailer dives deep into this world while also injecting a Hitchcockian spin right out of “The Twilight Zone”…
