Our hero Laura, played commendably by Alycia Debnam-Carey, resemble ludicrously prevalent, we know this on the grounds that the film thinks that its important to have a shouting friend counter show up on-screen irregularly, as though more youthful viewers will discover fear among a regularly diminishing friend bunch. A chance experience with Marina prompts her “friending” her, before erasing her taking after a difficult and extensively senseless encounter. What takes after is an unholy amalgamation of dreary tech language and repetitive awfulness antique.
Chief Simon Verhoeven appears to intrinsically doubt his own particular source material, inclining up the pressure using hop alarms and the odd disclosure sign-posted a mile off. It’s a study in abusing the “peaceful, calm, BANG” figure of speech to its generally great. Characters dither in dim passages, an entryway is opened simply to conceal a large portion of the casing, the score drops, before a wreck of commotion. None of this constitutes genuine fear.
