Movie Info

Anna, a student at the University of Amsterdam, lives with her best friend Sophie and balances psychology classes with supporting her brother and his recovery following a traumatic motorcycle accident. She's never far from her cellphone, and after a night of partying in the dorms, Anna wakes up groggy and hungover only to find that a new app has been inexplicably added to it. Initially helpful and clever, IRIS soon begins behaving mysteriously, answering personal questions it shouldn't know the answers to, and sending inappropriate images to her contacts. When it becomes clear she can't simply delete the unwanted evil app, Anna's efforts to confront it will set in motion a fearful series of events that will put her life, and that of her roommate and her fragile brother, in fatal danger.

While not fully realizing its potential, this rare occasion in which audiences are encouraged to use their phones during the movie is a surprisingly decent stab at something new.

Much has been made of its 'second screen' component. Fortunately, the film holds up just fine on one screen, because voluntarily downloading IRIS app seems like bad karma.

By no stretch of the imagination is App a great movie, but thanks to Hannah Hoekstra's magnetic lead performance, it's a much more wackily enjoyable one than it could have been.

Nice job. Imagine an App taking control of your life how crazy and scary is that!? The lengths you would go to try and get rid of that thing, creepy voice ,it controls everything you do. I really liked this film. Bobby Boermans direction was good I got vertigo a few times, thank you. Acting was good here too, thank god.
