late in the movie, it becomes apparent other characters are also being controlled by Tasya's employer, and they follow her. there is also a subplot about data collection via spying through webcams.

A lot of people are brutalized in this movie, but it doesn't feel targeted at women. The women's deaths are not any more drawn out than the men's, nor are they sexualized or shot differently.
