first second screen flick and it do works perfect
11 May 2015 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

I had seen App without the app you had to install, yes, this is an interactive flick. You have to install the app available in the stores for free to have a second-screen movie, the first one ever. I never tried to see it with the app because a lot of viewers did say on forums that the second screening wasn't working, guess why, the downloaded the movie. At a convention I found the Blu Ray and thought to give a try with the installed app.

And yes, it do work but be sure to turn off your sound and micro on and do pump up the volume of your surround, because the app do work on sound.

Is it worth seeing with the app, does it add something special towards the story. Towards the story it do add extra text or messages on your device. Here and there you will see another POV or you can see what is happening off-screen so yes it do works flawless.

And luckily enough the story isn't that bad at all. I can't say that it is really a horror, but I watched it with my 13 year old daughter and she jumped here and there throughout the flick. It offers suspense it clocks in at 73 minutes which is perfect for a story like this, nowhere I had a boring moment.

App is ideal for teenagers with their social media world.
