Watch: 'The Heart Machine' Trailer Will Scare You Out of Online Dating

How do you keep your whereabouts unknown in today’s world of Facebook, Instagram and the Internet? How would you find someone? “The Heart Machine” poses these questions in an exciting new trailer. 

John Gallagher Jr. of HBO’s “The Newsroom” stars as Cody, a lonely New Yorker who meets the woman of his dreams on the Internet. But Virginia (Kate Lyn Sheil) lives in Berlin. Though the Atlantic Ocean stand between them, the two begin a long-distance relationship. But soon, Cody begins to believe that Virginia might be a bit closer than he initially thought, or was told.

In the world of “Catfish” and the prevalence of online dating, “The Heart Machine” looks, from this new trailer, to be a commentary on how we construct our social relationships in the digital age. It also looks like a pretty exciting thriller. 

“The Heart Machine” opens in theaters and on VOD on October 24. Check out the trailer below:
