Synopsis: Unable to pay her bills. A young woman gets a job as a web cam girl. What starts off as playful interaction with lonely strangers via the safety of the internet. Quickly turns dark, when one of her admirers decides that he wants to be closer to her.

Cam Girl is an unconventional thriller that is short on thrills and overflowing with gratuitous shots of its protagonist in various stages of undress. Even though the film does a good job setting up who the protagonist and her motivations. The result is a underwhelming experience. First off, virtually everything that occurs in the film is told via the protagonist POV. And centering a whole film around one character, who’s only interacting with the outside world is via the phone and the internet. This is not the best choice since you would need a really good actor to convincingly pull off such a feat. And unfortunately¬† Layla Randle-Conde gives an erratic performance that is far from convincing. When all is said and done, Cam Girl is a tedious thriller that quickly wears out its welcome.

The DVD:

Chemical Burn Entertainment present Cam Girl in an anamorphic widescreen that retains the film’s original aspect ratio. This is a clean looking transfer. Flesh tones and colors look accurate. Even though the image generally looks crisp. There are a handful of instances where it looks soft. Edge enhancement is kept to a minimum and the image remains stable throughout.

This release comes with one audio option, a Dolby Digital Stereo mix in English. Background noise while present it is never to excessive. Even though dialog is generally clear. There are several instances where it sounds muffled. Most notable when the film’s protagonist is talking to people online.

Extras for this release include outtakes and music videos for songs that appear in the film. Other extras included promo clips for other releases also available from Chemical Burn Entertainment. This release comes with a static menu that has two options, play the main feature or chapter selection. Overall Cam Girl gets a well rounded DVD release from Chemical Burn Entertainment.
