The dark web myth takes its name from a Japanese Internet urban legend, although dark web red rooms are said to function differently. On the dark web, red rooms refer to live torture and murder in online livestreams and chatrooms. Reported instances of red rooms like in the Netflix movie have lacked evidence and therefore have been ruled hoaxes, largely due to a lack of ability for the required darknets to support streaming capabilities.
