Directed by Michael Goi, “Megan is Missing” is a psychological horror film released in 2011. It was based on true stories of child abduction and violence. The movie was boycotted in many countries because of the graphic violence and received a lot of criticism for over sexualizing kids. The movie was filmed in 2006 but no one was ready to distribute it until Anchor Bay Films came in 2011. Recently, the movie came back into the limelight after some people rediscovered it and started sharing their reactions.

The amount of violence and sexual content involving teenagers is the reason why it was banned in many countries. After hearing about this news of the movie resurfacing, director Goi issued a warning to anyone who plans on watching it. He stated that earlier he could give warnings but now he cannot give one. He said, “Do not watch the movie in the middle of the night. Do not watch the movie alone”. “And if you see the words ‘Photo Number One’ pop up on your screen, you have about four seconds to shut off the movie if you’re already kind of freaking out before you start seeing things that maybe you don’t want to see. So, apologies to those who are already posting about how the movie freaked them out, but fair warning to those of you who are still contemplating watching the film” he added.
What is the movie “Megan is Missing” about?
The plot of the movie revolves around Meghan Stewart, who is a popular high school student. She is loved by people around her and also did well in academics. However, as a child, she was abused which had traumatized her leading her to do drugs. She hangs out with her best friend Amy who is an outcast. However, even after these polar opposite personalities, they have a close relationship. Meghan meets a guy online and after she goes on to meet him, she goes missing. As a result, Amy launches an investigation. The whole film is merged in footage styles to make it more authentic. The story is not based on a true event but rather on some observations of various child abduction cases. The movie is not available on any OTT platforms and many suggest not to watch the movie for your good.
Goi has now worked on various projects such as “American Horror Story“, “Glee“, and more. He said that he made that film to make parents aware of such situations. During the filming, he made sure that the parents of the actors were present at the set because of the graphic content. He also wanted to make sure that the acting does not affect them by any means. The movie stars Amber Perkins as Amy Herman and Rachel Quinn as Megan Stewart. It was highly criticized for its acting and cinematography as well. If you are planning on watching the movie, make sure you are mentally strong and follow the guidelines given by the director.
