Jennifer Peterson is having one hell of a week. First, she gets fired from her photo shoot, her agent drops her,  her boyfriend breaks up with her and then puts out a sex tape with her in it. Oh, and her friend Stephanie is a very popular internet star due to her filming everything that she does. Jennifer decides that she wants to become an internet celebrity, by shooting a found footage film called Revenge Porn Revenge. The movie has a few stages to go through. The first one is hiring a bodyguard that will do anything she says. In walks Butch Valentine, played by Derek Mears (Friday the 13th remake). Butch is having a bad week which mirrors Jennifer. Split with his boyfriend, lost a job, etc. The two go through phases to make the movie. Step one is funding, where they rob Stephanie of the money she is depositing for her employer.
Next they need to get three guys for their movie. After that is completed murder ensues.

Derek Mears really stands out in this dark comedy horror film.  As does Meghan Deanna Smith who plays Stephanie.
This a good movie, so go check it out.
