Critics Consensus

Smart and suspenseful, CAM is a techno-thriller that's far more than the sum of its salacious parts -- and an outstanding showcase for Madeline Brewer in the leading role.

It follows Alice, an ambitious camgirl, who one day discovers 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.

  • Horror, at its best, reconstructs the formula of the genre and reflects what frightens us in a particular moment. Simply put, Cam is about the terror of getting locked out of your online accounts and losing your manufactured identity.

  • "Cam" plays with both psychological-horror genre tropes and darker existential themes, and its clear-eyed view of the drab realities of a cam-girl's life is both refreshing and ultra-creepy.

  • A fascinating conversation starter driven by a great performance. Turn it on.

  • If the first half of Cam is pleasantly episodic and purringly tense, the latter half-in which Alice searches for her hacker-is clever, inventive, and wonderfully evocative.

  • "Cam" is more successful as an oddly feminist tale of gutsy self-reliance than as a fully developed drama.

  • An at-times too-elusive but overall engaging peek behind the curtain at the lives of "cam girls."
