“Once your phone gets it, because we’re so entwined with our phones, you’ve got it,” says Ernie Quiroz, programming manager for the Denver Film Society. “Once your phone is infected, you’re infected.”
To help make the horrifying premise all the more real, the movie is paired with — you guessed it — a dedicated app, designed to sync with the film. As the movie plays, you’ll get access to alternate perspectives, off-screen action and more, all designed to pull you deeper into the story.
“It’s not 100 percent necessary to enjoy the film, but it’s there, and it’s another layer to add to the film,” Quiroz explains. “It’s not like walking into a 3-D movie without glasses and being left with a headache and wondering what the hell is going on.”
See App starting tonight at the Sie FilmCenter, 2510 East Colfax Avenue. Tickets are $10, or $7 for DFS members. For more information, including showtimes, visit denverfilm.org and download the app by texting IRIS to 97000. If you dare.
