When we thought we had thoroughly researched every one of the five big endings from the Black Mirror choose-your-own-adventure film, Bandersnatch, Netflix has attracted us back , showing there is at one alternative we have yet to attempt. On January 8th, Netflix’s U.K. and Ireland Twitter page suggested a seemingly innocuous choice in Bandersnatch–where protagonist Stefan Butler (Fionn Whitehead) should choose between picking up a framed family photo or a worn copy of a publication –is over it sounds.
While we will not spoil what happens once you pick up the family photograph twice, possibly put the popcorn down, because the outcomes are somewhat jump-scare-level frightening.
Place in 1984, Bandersnatch follows Stefan, a computer programmer, as he tries to flip a choose-your-own-adventure book (also referred to as Bandersnatch) to a video game. Netflix has reported that although the film has five chief endings, it’s over a trillion permutations…that, in a nutshell, means we will probably never completely grasp the encounter.
Thus, do you intend to return in and pick up that film frame (double ), or simply sit back and await Black Mirror Season 5?
