 Hi All

Looking for a late 90s / early 2000 European Thriller / Horror involving an Internet Predator.

What I remember is;

This aired on SBS in the early 2000s (SBS is an Australian free to air channel that airs Foreign Films.), and I remember it being fairly new looking at the time of watching.

I believe this was made in the late 90s / perhaps 2000 to 2001. No later than that.

Lead actress was punk / gothic, with piercings or tattoos. I believe the plot was about her friend or relative going missing after chatting with someone online.

The lead actress is forced to strip in front of a webcam by the villain (no, this is not why I want to track this film down :P ).

At some point, the lead is locked in a bathroom but escapes, left gasping for air.

I know this will probably be impossible to find, but I just thought I'd try.

Any help is greatly appreciated! I know this may be hard, but I remember sensing this wasn't a low budget film - so hopefully it's a widely known European film that somebody can help me out with :)

Knee-jerk guess would be THE CARD PLAYER (04) by Dario Argento. It has a lot of what you're recalling in it. But... it's 2004.

Thanks for the suggestion!!! I have checked out the trailer for The Card Player; the film I'm on a quest to finding has a similar vibe / aura to The Card Player, but certainly isn't it. I'm positive the film I'm after was made before 2002, as I watched it in my old home that I moved out of in 2002. Really trying to remember any other details, but the only new thing I can remember is the film may have been French.

Really appreciate the feedback though!

Edit - It could also have been Italian...In fact, most likely Italian but possibly French.

Strangeland, maybe.  It's been so long since I saw it I don't know if it matches anything except being about an internet predator.

Thanks for the suggestion; Strangeland is sadly not the film either. I found Strangeland via google in my quest to find this mysterious film, and while similar in premise; it's not the film I'm looking for. The film I'm looking for was definitely not in English.

I can fill in the blanks more so;

* the lead actress (brunette, punk) decides to try and find her sibling / roommate / friend without the cops. I believe she was pleading with the cops to try harder but to no avail.

* Quite convinced the year it was released was 2000, as I seem to recall seeing the title in a tv guide. It had a short title, and I believe it started with "The".

* when the punk lead actress is chatting with the villain and is asked to strip, she immediately says "no way" or something along those lines (in her language). I remember this because the subtitles were quite long throughout this film, but when she says no it was a very brief set of subtitles. She eventually does agree to strip.

* I seem to recall the villain being an older man, and the villain was definitely more grounded/realistic than Strangeland.

I am continuing to Google as I try and remember every vivid detail. Thanks for the replies thus far!
