Terrifying Horror Movie Banned In New Zealand Goes Viral On TikTok

An unsettling horror film, previously banned in New Zealand, is currently gaining viral popularity on TikTok.

There is no shortage of spine-chilling movies available to satisfy thrill-seekers.

Certain scenes in Men and Terrier 2 compelled audience members to exit theaters, with some even fainting.

However, a new movie trailer is now making waves, promising an even more terrifying experience. Take a look at the trailer below...

Megan Is Missing, a horror film set in North Hollywood, tells the story of two teenage best friends, Megan Stewart (Rachel Quinn) and Amy Herman (Amber Perkins).

Their lives take a dark turn when Megan disappears after engaging in conversations and a meeting with an online acquaintance.

Despite its release more than a decade ago, the film has experienced a resurgence on social media.

TikTok users are now capturing and sharing their initial reactions to viewing the movie.

A comment reads:

"Megan is Missing man, that s*** got me staring at the wall and wanting to delete all my social media accounts and never come back ever again."

"If you are easily triggered or under 18 please watch it during the day or with someoneā€¦or both," a viewer warns.

"This world is so f***ing disgusting, I can't stop crying and I feel sick to my stomach. If you haven't watched it yet, please don't. It's horrifying."

"Megan is Missing is trending for some reason and lemme tell you, do NOT watch it without reading the Wikipedia first, if you're even a little bit interested, absolutely horrible and repugnant movie," another viewer shares.

"Wouldn't recommend ever."

"I just watched it. I feel like I wanna cry now," a commenter adds.

The low-budget horror film faced significant controversy upon its release, leading to its ban in New Zealand, primarily due to its thematic content.

According to The Sun, the Office of Film & Literature Classification in New Zealand stated:

"The DVD is classified as objectionable."

"The feature depicts s**ual violence and s**ual conduct involving young people to such an extent and degree, and in such a manner, that the availability of the publication is likely to be injurious to the public good."

Amid the film's newfound popularity, director Michael Hoi has recently issued a fresh warning.

Addressing his TikTok audience, Hoi shares, "I didn't get to give you the customary warnings that I used to give people before they watched Megan Is Missing."

"They are: do not watch the movie in the middle of the night, do not watch the movie alone, and if you see the words 'Photo Number one' pop up on your screen, you have about four seconds to shut off the movie."

"If you're already freaking out before you start seeing things that maybe you don't want to see."
