This should be fun.
Directed by Levan Gabriadze, a Georgian-Russian director in his first American feature, Unfriended takes the supernatural element to another level. It's very unique and different; the entity invades social media – what's not to love?
All the characters come off as very whiny and annoying but I think that's because their young and stupid. Let's face it. If you've seen how people talk to each other on social media and how vindictive they can be towards others; it would be all these six characters. When Laura pops in for a visit, it's a relief, it's needed and boy does she get their attention.
I do have to question why any of them would be friends with each other after all the terrible things they did to one another and kept it a secret. Friends, can't live with them....
I do have a few gripes with the film. (Spoiler alert) I do wonder why they all had to die, I mean it's not like they were all entirely responsible for Laura's death, they did certainly contribute though. Wouldn't the best punishment be to harass and scare them endlessly for the rest of the lives? Anyway. Another pet peeve is when the deceased Laura Barns starts updating her Facebook status, wouldn't all her pals on her friends list be questioning as to what the heck is going? I sure would be.
A sequel was announced when the movie was released. As of 2017, still no word of production dates.
Drifted Apart? Is that how you remember it?
