    ★★★ Watched 13 Sep, 2014

The film has a slightly odd tone - part black comedy, part menacing chiller with some of the torture scenes quite shocking. But the real chill - which comes almost at the end of the film, feels rushed and (perhaps deliberately) unfinished. Worth a watch nonetheless

I adored the immersive video game with the sweary alien and the retro 'Perfect Mom'. I chortled to myself at the thought that smartphones would get smaller and chunkier and I would love to have a friendly OS that sorted out my life for…
