Catfish Movie Trailer – A Bizarre, Unpredictable Social Media Mystery

by Brian Willett

With the advent of social media, meeting people online is now easier than it has ever been.  But that doesn’t mean it’s a good idea.  The new film Catfish documents the true story of Nev, whose online relationships lead him to stumble upon shocking secrets.  Here’s what Rogue Pictures had to say about the film:

In late 2007, filmmakers Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost sensed a story unfolding as they began to film the life of Ariel’s brother, Nev.  They had no idea that their project would lead to the most exhilarating and unsettling months of their lives.  A reality thriller that is a shocking product of our times, Catfish is a riveting story of love, deception and grace within a labyrinth of online intrigue.

According to the Financial Times, this is “the best Hitchcock film Hitchcock never directed.” You can view the official trailer below.
