Unfriended Review

Image for Unfriended

Teenager Blaire (Hennig) and her friends find themselves teased and tormented by what seems to be the ghost of a girl cyberbullied into committing suicide a year before.

★★★★★

Not an inventive evolution of teen horror so much as an inevitable one, Levan Gabriadze’s computer-confined thriller unfolds entirely on the desktop of Blaire (Shelley Hennig) as she and her friends find themselves teased and tormented by the ghost of a girl cyberbullied into committing suicide a year before.

The real-time narrative cleverly replicates the easily distracted experience of actual computer usage, but the spirit’s eventual scare tactics lead to a series of disappointingly tame confrontations involving a lot of video interference and shrieking.

Clever cybernatural thriller.
