* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Every male victim suffers through a slow and agonising death that even if someone managed to rescued them in time would leave lasting and obvious scarring. [[spoiler: Jennifer]] is put in a death trap that will either kill her instantly or allow her to escape untouched.

[[ActionGirl Jennifer Marsh]] (Diane Lane) is a single mother and an agent for the FBI's cyber crime unit with her partner [[LovableNerd Griffin Dowd]] (Colin Hanks). Their new case is tracking down and trying to bring down a new Web site, [[MurderDotCom KillWithMe.com]], which consists of streaming video of a cat put in a ''{{Saw}}''-esque death trap, a chatroom for comments and a viewing counter which, as it rises, makes the death trap more and more dangerous for the victim inside. As the webmaster, Owen Reilly (Joseph Cross), moves up to human victims, the site's popularity grows, making the deaths on screen happen faster and faster.

* StreisandEffect: After initially discovering [=KillWithMe.com=], the police department issues a public service announcement warning people to stay away from it. As [[GenreSavvy Jennifer]] predicted and feared, this only serves to increase the website's popularity.

* YouBastard: The film's message is pretty much a TakeThat against society's obsession over violence and TorturePorn, lampshading the message repeatedly.
