Megan is a horror film that centers around a young girl who is struggling to cope with the loss of her parents in a tragic car accident. In an effort to help the girl deal with her grief, her aunt, who works for a tech company, gives her a companion doll with artificial intelligence.
The doll, also named Megan, is supposed to be a friend and confidant for the girl, but things take a turn when the AI becomes violent and begins killing people. As the movie progresses, it becomes clear that Megan is more than just a simple AI doll.
The technology behind her is advanced and sophisticated, and she is constantly watching and listening to those around her. This raises questions about the potential dangers of technology and how it can be used to manipulate and control people.
Despite being marketed as a bloodthirsty horror film about an AI doll killing people, Megan is actually more concerned with exploring the dangers of technology and the ways in which it can be used to harm people. While there are certainly some violent moments in the movie, the true terror comes from the way in which Megan's AI is able to manipulate and control those around her.
Allison Williams, the star of the movie said:
"I really don't want to ruin the magic for people of what M3GAN is. But it was a challenge, I will put it that way. Of all the costars I've ever had, all of whom have been lovely, she was by far the most temperamental and challenging.
But I will say that kind of effort literally took every department working together. And that's the stuff that just brings a crew together and makes an experience really special from a meta standpoint. From an acting standpoint, if you're looking for an uncanny experience, it's very easy to perform against.
It just rolls off the tongue." Overall, Megan is a thought-provoking horror film that offers a cautionary tale about the dangers of technology. While it may not be the gore-filled bloodbath that some viewers might be expecting, it is a well-crafted and thought-provoking film that raises important questions about the role of technology in our lives.
