A Horror Film About Apps? Great Concept.
9 June 2014 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

A young psychology student is drawn into the dark and fearful world of a diabolic and mysterious App that starts to terrorize her, distributing compromising photographs, videos and text messages about herself and delves deeper and deeper into her personal life, flawlessly exposing all of her deepest secrets.

Absolutely worth singling out is Herman Witkam, the film's composer. Despite his lengthy credits, Witkam is not well known (at least not in America), but should be. He provides a score that is both unique and energizing, and fits the film's theme perfectly.

The general idea is brilliant, especially as apps become more advanced and our privacy gets thinner and thinner through social media. This is truly something that needs to be seen by more viewers.
