Sandra Bullock in The Net

To say the 1995 movie The Net is a classic would be…an overstatement. The Irwin Winkler film starring Sandra Bullock, Jeremy Northam, and Dennis Miller didn’t have the best reception when it came out, and over time it’s gotten a reputation as a very schlocky paranoid thriller (in reality, it’s probably become more realistic as the net’s reach has expanded).

Today, the movie’s technology is one of its most unique aspects—early web interfaces and fantastic webpages abound. We found every screenshot—webpage or otherwise—and captured it for fans of The Net around the world. We’ve got the info in the caption—click to see the high resolution shot and page through the gallery.

The screens are below, but first, some of the most important trivia about The Net (for a more technical overview, check out this security-minded post).

  • The band whose website is a backdoor to the entire Internet is called Mozart’s Ghost.
