Hard Candy

Someone was always bound to write this story. Fortunately, when they did, they made a good job of it and the script has been especially well-favoured by David Slade's direction and Ellen Page's acting.

32-year-old man and 14-year-old girl have been chatting online for three weeks and agree to "hook up" on her suggestion. She then talks herself back to his home and after advising him that she has been taught never to drink anything she hasn't mixed up herself, proceeds to mix up a soporific screwdriver for her host.

When he later awakens strapped to a chair, the cat and mouse stuff gets under way. The makers of the film have set things up nicely to generate a range of different reactions from their audience, though most men are bound to find the scenes of apparent castration uncomfortable to watch, to say the least.

This highly-charged topic of reverse-grooming the paedos reminds me of the time V used to try to sniff out the Chapin kiddyfiddlers on Latinchat in order to send them on wild goose-chase missions to meet up with their targets.
