Trivia

In Cooper (Wyatt Russell)'s mum's house stair layout, her room is at the end of the hall upstairs. That is the exact same stair layout of the access point layout in the game. This is why he was resistant to entering it fearing it would have something to do with his mom (Elizabeth Moynihan). See more »

Goofs

While Sonja is preparing breakfast for Cooper in her flat's kitchen the kitchen clock is shown, which is not working. The second-hand does not move either time the clock is shown. See more »

Quotes

Katie: We need you to follow instructions and make it to the access point.
Cooper: The access point? Great. Where the fuck's the access point?... Oh, fuck! More stairs? Come on!

Absolutely terrifying, brilliantly made classic black mirror
22 October 2016 | by seanfinnauSee all my reviews

You know what after the first episode i was a bit put off thinking black mirror had lost its charlie brooker-ness but NOPE literally this episode is bloody scary and really well made.

The Visuals are amazing

The sound are amazing

The concept is largely very original and done in a very creepy of putting way.

It starts off very annoying much like the first episode then quickly takes a dark turn, i wont give too much away only to say its typical black mirror mind fackery.

10/10 absolutely freaked me out.
