Though Siri is at best a middling distraction on the iPhone 4S for most of us, it's nevertheless an incredible piece of technology. Advanced voice recognition, sophisticated artificial intelligence, a smattering of humorous responses... But what we didn't know is that Siri actually has a mind of its own and is on a mission to “kill the humans." Something that we find out in this hilarious spoof movie trailer, 'Siri: The Holiday Horror Movie'.
From Terminator's Skynet to HAL-9000 in Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, there's a deluge of science-fiction movies out there that play with the concept of smart computer systems being humans' eventual downfall. And it's with this in mind that has enabled Rooster Teeth to produce a genuinely funny, witty and smart horror spoof that uses Siri as its primary antagonist.
Commence a group of teens receiving Apple's latest smart-phone for Christmas and later be offed one-by-one by the monotone masochist. Our favourite Siri moment? Breaking through the door Shining-style. One thing's for sure: we'll never hear that beep the same again.
