If he could not execute his vision in a way that felt fresh, he said, then he wasn’t sure about doing it at all. The film takes the framing device of the horror franchise Unfriended and uses it to enhance a different and far more grounded terror: the panic that a parent would feel if one of their children suddenly went missing. And J2 is jealous of J3, who is taking up all George’s affection and attention, so she starts sabotaging J3’s development. It’s a gnarly, gruesome shot that is not for the faint of heart.

When George wants J3 to submit to being erased, the development comes with no new information that would clarify how J3 isn’t like Jules, or what new thing he’s expecting out of this point of the experiment. Does the elaborate fantasy that constitutes most of the movie’s action have anything to do with why or how archives fail — that is, do all archived personalities just fall into their own created worlds and stop acknowledging the outside real world?
