When mobiles turn dangerous in fiction

August 21, 2021 5:23 am


We all need our mobile phones about as much as we need air. Ask yourself this question, do you know anyone who doesn’t have a mobile phone? Even if they don’t use it very often, or even bother to use it for making calls, just playing games and updating Instagram on it most people have one. Getting a mobile is not a hard task. You can simply go to King Communications and try Vodafone near me to get yourself one. You might even be one of those people who don’t have one. Here are a few examples of where you might get put off.  It’s where the mobile phone has been responsible for being a detriment to humanity rather than a helper.

  1. Doctor Who. All seems to be going swimmingly with the UK population. They’ve all got these snazzy new mobiles that allow them to organise their lives and help them make sure that they are where they are supposed to be. Everything follows a pattern and they play along. 9.15 is joke time and everyone stops and laughs. It’s a bit weird to the Doctor and Rose. It gets even weirder when it turns out this is just the first step to turning them all into Cybermen!

  1. Cell. The writer Stephen King is well known for his stories. Most of them take a certain dark and horrific tone and this is no surprise here. A Pulse wave rips through global phone network turning everyone using a phone at that time, or who chooses to answer it, into a zombie type nutjob. Stephen King doesn’t own a Cell phone…
  2. End Call. The Japanese usually celebrate technology but in this one if you use this phone it connects you to an evil force that steals your soul. On the plus side the force will grant you whatever you wish is (although it usually cheats you out of it and the call takes time of your life) Probably better to call your Mum then.
