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.

  • Not to say there isn't any fun to be had in what serves as the first film to utilize second screen technology, but it's cheap and shallow fun, to be sure.

  • 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.
