All Critics (153) | Top Critics (33)

[Cursed with] the common horror movie problem of being unintentionally hilarious.

Full Review… | April 22, 2016

"Unfriended" isn't a bad movie, but it is a myopic one, using a the highest of high concepts to say nothing at all.

Full Review… | April 17, 2016

Unfriended - previously titled Cybernatural and Offline before that - is the latest cyber variation of the tireless found-footage horror subgenre which fails to bring anything new or novel to the table.

Full Review… | April 6, 2016

The conceit proves surprisingly inventive and gripping rather than just a gimmick.

The irony of Unfriended is that its target audience is also the social target of its scorn.

Audience Reviews for Unfriended


Okay, ending was a bit silly, but considering this story takes place entirely on one girl's computer screen, I found this an original and interesting idea. It had me quite tense in a few places, so overall I would say it it works.

An exhausted and cliched version of the modern day dangers of the web.

More efficient than other recent "computer windows" horror flicks like The Den and Open Windows, it knows how to build tension and is clever to show what the protagonist is thinking through the way she writes (and sometimes erases before sending) messages on her computer screen.
