From Hollywood Reporter:
The story tells of a troubled young boy (Robertson) and his family who become the target of a monster that materialized through electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets. The project is based on Chase’s horror short and harkens back to early Amblin movies like the family under siege in Poltergeist as well as the more recent Mama, another horror short adapted into a feature film.
