It’s Halloween, So Let’s Watch the Year’s Best Free Online Webcam Stalker Film

The above creepy film comes from ZBros Productions, a quartet of NYC ad creatives including JWT’s Stefan Havercamp, BBH’s Jan Jaworski, Grey’s Tom Kropp and Mcgarrybowen’s Branden Kramer (of the Situation Shirt fame).

Based on actual events, “Webcam” follows a young girl who, unbeknownst to her, is being watched by a creepy dude who’s hacked her webcam. And, given that it’s filmed completely from the perspective of the villainous stalker, it can be quite unnerving watching something from such a voyeuristic perspective, especially when the young girl dances around in her underwear and gets intimate with a male suitor. Basically, if your boss catches you watching this at work and doesn’t understand that it’s a “film,” you will look like a total perv. With this in mind, exercise caution when viewing “Webcam” in the workplace.

“Webcam” is a PSA of sorts, as statistics at the end of the film are used to warn viewers of the pervasive amount of webcam hacking that takes place online. After watching, you’ll probably think twice the next time you leave your laptop open. Remember, if the light next to your webcam doesn’t come on when in use, stop, scream, and run to your nearest Apple Store. That’s where the victim in “Webcam” went wrong. Credits after the jump.
