This was a case of the right book at the right time. I was completely wrapped up in the story from the beginning. The mystery was thrilling and the plots of Cordova's films was equally as interesting as the main plot. I would recommend this to people who enjoy a little creepy with their mystery. Lovers of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Room, and Gone Girl.

Fascinating premise, faulty execution. Unnecessarily long, at times tedious, and often silly, unlike other commenters, I liked the ending. Should make a heck of a movie, though.

I found this novel to be cleverly written and yes, it had me hooked within a few pages. I was more curious than scared. The ending left me hanging, but it isn't that what Cordova's movies did as well? The app was super cool. I had to contact Random House since it wasn't working from me originally. I did get it to work after I hovered over the entire page until I got the Play arrow. The author is enormously creative with her story telling bonus features. I listened to it a few more times.

Complex and scary. Can make your nerves a little jumpy. I wasn't crazy about the ending but it was basically a great book.

I really enjoyed this book, but nowhere near as much as Pessl's first novel "Special Topics in Calamity Physics" which I felt was on par with Donna Tartt's Secret History. In Night Film you are hooked by the strange, winding, layered mystery right away. If you like a bit of eerie creepiness, you'll love this book. There is an app you can download for all kinds of fun add-ons that make you feel like Sherlock Holmes. You won't know who or what to believe up to and including the final pages!

One of the most terrifying books I have ever read.

This book had my interest right from the get-go. However, it seemed as though the author ran out of gas towards the ending. I tried using the app associated with this book, but it wouldn't work. Will be interesting to see how good this book will be in movie-format.

5 stars for the plot and the humourous insights and the way I couldn't put it down. 1 star for the ending.
