Absolutely terrifying, brilliantly made classic black mirror
22 October 2016 | by seanfinnauSee all my reviews

You know what after the first episode i was a bit put off thinking black mirror had lost its charlie brooker-ness but NOPE literally this episode is bloody scary and really well made.

The Visuals are amazing

The sound are amazing

The concept is largely very original and done in a very creepy of putting way.

It starts off very annoying much like the first episode then quickly takes a dark turn, i wont give too much away only to say its typical black mirror mind fackery.

10/10 absolutely freaked me out.
