The Den is the modern version of Rear Window. In the era of Skype it is very easy to believe that sooner or later someone is going to witness something nefarious. Because the film is largely told through Emily’s iMac computer screen I became confused several times because I watched this movie on my iMac, which added an extra layer of realism/voyeurism. The Den drives home the point that the online landscape is full of nonsense but also dangerous people. The internet is a portal to bad things and our pursuit to be entertained comes with very real consequences. Bleak and nihilistic, The Den is worth checking out.
