MIT students take a detour on a road trip to track down a hacker who has taunted them online, only to fall unconscious and awake in a living nightmare.

★★★★

MIT students Brenton Thwaites and Beau Knapp drive their friend Olivia Cooke across country to a new college, but detour to track down a mystery hacker who has taunted them online… And then Thwaites wakes up in a hazmat facility trying to puzzle out what has happened.

Writer-director William Eubank made a strong first impression with the ambitious, near-homemade science-fiction drama, Love. Here he has more resources and a decent cast, but continues to work his particular mind-stretching mix of acute character interplay and cosmic conceptual breakthrough.
