Synopsis

Storyline:
After having online chat room chats for three weeks, “Thonggrrrl14” convinces “Lensman319” to meet in person in a public place, they being up front that they are a fourteen year old girl and thirty-two year old man respectively. They are indeed precocious fourteen year old Hayley Stark and thirty-two year old photographer Jeff Kohlver. Their interactions, including their meeting, are laced with indirect sexual innuendo, most specifically on Hayley’s part, although Jeff is clear also in an indirect manner that he does not have sex with minors. Regardless, Hayley is further able to convince Jeff to continue their face-to-face at his place. There, both Hayley and Jeff’s true intentions come to light, their meeting which was no accident on either side, and the intentions which may be incompatible and have serious and deadly consequences.

User Reviews: This seemed like an interesting story but it is made in such a poor way that it spoils everything. first of all, there is absolutely no justification for the so-called young woman’s actions. only thing that would have made sense is if she had indeed been a supernatural being such as a ghost. but making her into this justice-freedom-fighter against pedophiles is just ridiculous. It doesn’t matter what Jeff, who seems like a nice guy, by the way, has done, and this sort of behaviour would be impossible by a 14 year old girl. both physically and mentally. as usual us horror is trying to emulate Japanese recent horror but fails miserably. This movie hard candy looked like a haunting story but all ready about half an hour into the movie i could see that none of the actors or people involved in this movie was up to the task. Besides there is some strange speech that does not fit with the characters at all. it looks very strange.
