Entertaining and creative movie. I enjoyed the subject matter of mental illnesses and how people influence each other on the web. Worth a watch!
It was well acted, at least by the main character and Jim, and the story was alright too. Still some vague details that could have been filled in. Solid 3.5-4/5.
I really like this movie. It's weird and creepy. Aaron Taylor-Johnson is great in it!
