THE NETHER

A detective is interrogating a suspect on his recent online behavior. "Who are we when we 'interact' without consequence?" she asks. "What is 'revealed' by feeling an ax slide through the flesh of a little girl?" The man calmly replies, "The revelation is when she resurrects and comes to stand before you again." Jennifer Haley's unnerving psychological drama asks just how virtuous virtual reality will be if humans are able to explore their darkest impulses in full-fidelity sight, sound, smell, and touch; the answers might have you looking at that Oculus Rift in a different light. Jules Odendahl-James directs a cast including Caitlin Wells, Lazarus Simmons, and Marleigh Purgar McDonald. —Byron Woods
