TERREUR 404 is the code for pages that don’t exist, the point at which our boring everyday reality shifts toward something strange, worrisome, horrible. Terreur 404 is a series of short films wherein our worst nightmares come to life through the very technology we use to communicate with one another. Don’t bother adjusting your set. It’s already too late.
EPISODE 1: My First Dead Body
Jeanne is a patient attendant at a nursing home and for the first time, she must prepare the body of a patient who died during her night shift. Since her social media accounts need content, Jeanne takes a few selfies with the corpse. After all, Mrs. Arsenault can’t do anything to complain, can she?

Maxime is a young professional, on his way to meet his girlfriend Cynthia at a restaurant, where he intends to pop the question. The evening is off to a great start, until Maxime unthinkingly accepts a friendship request sent by… himself.
EPISODE 3: Night Ride
Patricia, an elegant but slightly strung out account manager, has to go to Toronto to meet some big clients. Her loyal secretary Monique uses her new taxi app to order a car service for the airport. Patricia finds that the driver is taking a strange route, but aside from arriving at the last minute, what’s the worst that could happen?

After having seriously compromised the health of his girlfriend Sophie’s laptop, Charles takes shady steps to repair it. His meeting with Léo, a paranoid computer technician and conspiracy theorist, forces him to consider the impossible: what if computer viruses could actually make us sick?
EPISODE 5: House of Lovers

EPISODE 6: Mister Perfect
Gabrielle is not faint of heart, nor does she want to spend the night alone. After matching up on her dating app with her neighbour Jules, an Adonis-like medicine student, she thinks she’s found just what she’s looking for. Instead, she has just embarked on a strange journey into the night.
EPISODE 7: Mom, I’m Scared
Stéphane is not a big fan of the silly viral videos that people send each other at work all day long. The most recent one, “Mom, I’m Scared,” features a young boy who swears he saw a monster behind the garage. There must be something special about it, because it’s making all of Stéphane’s colleagues crazy. Literally crazy.
EPISODE 8: Day Surgery
Daniel is desperate: a degenerative eye disease will soon render him blind and he doesn’t have the resources to seek medical treatment abroad. Thankfully, he learns online that the travelling, clandestine clinic run by the good Dr. Engelmann will be coming to Montréal to offer sufferers like him an experimental surgery.
