Dutch director Bobby Boermans is bowing to the inevitable. No, more than that, he's pushing things to an even greater extreme. You see, while others are waging the war against cell phones in movie theaters Boermans is going the other way entirely with his upcoming thriller APP
, a film which offers direct interaction with audiences via their phone.
In the thriller APP, Anna (Hannah Hoekstra), a young student, gets caught
up in her own virtual world. She is addicted to apps, social media and
her smartphone. One day Anna discovers a mysterious new app on her
phone. It has the answer to every question. Not just scientific
questions, but also about her personal life and her friends. When the
app starts sending her cryptic texts and codes connected to the sudden
and strange deaths of people around her, it becomes evident that it is
not just a handy app.
Yes, Anna's app will be available to audiences as well and those who have it will be offered a degree of interactivity with the events of the film as the film is screening. It's an interesting experiment at least, though one that would come to nothing if the film itself isn't good. And on that front we presented a very solid teaser back in December - a teaser which has since been followed by a full trailer. Check it below.
