I know it sounds odd, but I live for intense thrillers that make me ridiculously paranoid about technology. Whether it's a mystery that explores the impact of smart devices (like Searching) or psychological horror about how social media dictates our lives (like Cam), these titles are just as mesmerizing as they are terrifying. So, when I saw the trailer for HBO Max's newest thriller, Kimi, I just knew I had to watch.
As expected, the film is like a 90-minute episode of Black Mirror, but with Woman in the Window vibes. It follows a voice streaming interpreter named Angela Childs (Zoë Kravitz), who struggles with agoraphobia and spends her days sifting through communication errors on a virtual assistant called "Kimi." But when she stumbles upon a recording of a crime, she pushes herself to do the one thing she fears most—leave her apartment. And that's only the beginning.
