Solid performances by Gillian Jacobs ("Community") and John Gallagher Jr. ("The Newsroom") help anchor this 2020 horror thriller from writer-director Jacob Chase, who casts the pair as Sarah and Marty, the stressed-out parents of a young non-verbal autistic boy, Oliver (Azhy Robertson). After his parents' marriage starts to crack, Oliver is playing with the smartphone he uses to communicate and notices a previously unnoticed app called "Misunderstood Monsters." In activating the app, however, Oliver inadvertently unleashes a dangerous entity. Winslow Fegley, Jayden Marine and Eboni Booth are featured.
