8/10
Spooktober Day 5 - techno horror

A little too straightforward in some regards but still so exciting and frightening, and the visual choices here are immensely gratifying. This isn't as much a film about the horror of technology as it is a film featuring the horror of technology, but it still uses those ideas/images in intensely creepy ways that sneak their way into everything else. A true precursor to modern horror (it's hard to imagine Pulse or creepypasta without this thing) and a gorgeously haunting experience. Best of the month so far.
