Since this movie takes place on a mock computer screen just like a previous film, Unfriended (2014), there is a small nod to that movie during the very first Facebook scene. The name "Laura Barns," a character from Unfriended, appears on the top right screen as a trending topic. It was shown very briefly. See more »
Detective Vick (Deborah Messing) refers to "the 101" and "the 152" when referring to Northern California, specifically San Jose area highways. The use of "The" is common in southern California when mentioning freeways or highways. However, in Northern California it is not used. The scriptwriters, obviously from SoCal, missed that.

It started slowly as the characters were revealed and like Nordic Noir the narrative drive was the meticulous investigation on the internet. For those on social media this was brilliant for those more technologically naive this was a bore. The silence and mouse clicks let to the suspense for me others thought it made the movie slow. The acting was brilliant and you felt his pain and frustration. A really great movie with an unexpected twist, I loved it.
