DO NOT REPLY (2019): A High School Cheerleader Fetish & Teen Entrapment

Here's IMDb's plot summary for Do Not Reply (2019): 

"Chelsea, a teenager, is abducted through a social media app by Brad and is held captive with other girls who are to become victims in his virtual reality filmed murders."

That about sums the film up, but it's worth noting that Brad, like Glass' (2019) Kevin Wendell Crumb, has a high school cheerleader fetish, and he appears to be in his mid to late twenties.

The film's ending may be its most intriguing part. Minutes before Do Not Reply (2019) ends, two 13-year-old nymphets attempt to meet a "cute" 17-year-old boy via a social media app.

The Asian nymphet was concerned that a 17-year-old boy wouldn't, "[...] pickup a couple of 13-year-old girls." No problem. The white teen changed their ages to 16. Consequently, to the nymphet's delight, the 17-year-old texted, "Hey BlueRibbonGirl, You wanna hang out??? I can pick you up in like 10 min."

But that wasn't the most intriguing part. After the nymphet's attempted to entrap the 17-year-old, the screen faded to a public service announcement from The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children: "The average age of online enticement victims is 15 years old."

But there was enticement being done - on both sides. The 13-year-old nymphets were knowingly enticing a 17-year-old, but the 17-year-old was unknowingly enticing two 13-year-olds. 

However, it doesn't matter. IRL, the 17-year-old, at a minimum, would have, like Ansel Elgort, been (incorrectly) called a pedophile. And at a maximum, he would have served jail time and had to register as a sex offender. And the nubile nymphets? Innocent. Not even a proverbial slap on the wrists.
