‘Clickbait’ Trailer Reveals Someone’s Deepest Deadly Secrets Online to Judge

Netflix is on a role with their thriller lineup

by Trey Hilburn III

Netflix is continuing their lineup of awesome thrillers that appear to be thinking outside the box with Clickbait. This one seems to speak to the age of doxing online. But, it doesn’t speak only to one side. Is doxing okay if the crimes of a person in our age is out in the world being a Harvey Weinstein? The subject is definitely intriguing and timely.

The synopsis for Clickbait goes like this:

Nick Brewer (Adrian Grenier) is a loving father, husband, and brother, who one day suddenly and mysteriously disappears. A video appears on the internet of the badly beaten Nick holding a card that says “I abuse women. At 5 million views, I die”. Is this a threat or confession? Or both? As his sister (Zoe Kazan) and wife (Betty Gabriel) rush to find and save him, they uncover a side of Nick they didn’t know existed. An eight-episode limited series told from revolving points of view, Clickbait is a compelling, high stakes thriller that explores the ways in which our most dangerous and uncontrolled impulses are fueled in the age of social media, revealing the ever-widening fractures we find between our virtual and real-life personas.
Clickbait drops onto Netflix Aug. 25.
