First Impressions: Unfriended (2015)

Unfriended (2015)

So on the nose it’s bloody, Unfriended takes on cyberbullying using a unique execution of the “found-footage” device. One year after the Laura Barn’s suicide, the “friends” who posted the humiliating video that drove her to suicide are haunted by her vengeful spirit.  Aside from the novelty of watching the event play out on a computer screen, multiple screens, in real time, it follows the same teenage horror conventions.   It’s entertaining but it’s not scary.  If you do see it, be sure to watch it with a group of rowdy teenagers. Someone needs to warn the characters on screen that it’s not safe to investigate the strange noise in the basement.
