Psychology student Anna Rijnders (Hannah Hoesktra) wakes up one day with a new personal assistant app installed on her phone. Iris, the app, keeps asking Anna what she wants to know. Anna responds with a few questions and finds, to her surprise, that Iris is extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
But the interaction turns sour when Iris starts sharing personal videos between Anna and her friends. Things get even worse as people around Anna start to die in mysterious accidents. Anna will go to any length to get rid of Iris.
There's no doubt that App's greatest appeal is how Boermans has pioneered a new storytelling technique, offering extra footage and hints via an actual app that add a new dimension to cinema.
As well as an amazing use of technology, App boasts a tightly-knitted storyline, which unfolds at a decently exciting pace. And Hoesktra proves to be "one to watch".
One tip before you head to the cinema: download the app first as it's a biggish file. Then see if you have the guts to delete it after watching the film.
