  • It's a premise that seems ridiculous until you start to realize it might actually be brilliant, or at least charmingly clever.

  • I'll admit the film held my attention but I left the theater unsatisfied, which I think will be a common reaction among those not within the demographic niche for which the production was mounted.

  • This is clever, even poignant stuff. Oldies as well as adolescents will find themselves intrigued.

  • In the cinema, the static setup, fuzzy, pixellating Skype faces, and the parps of incoming messages all become profoundly irritating.

  • Unfriended is genuinely innovative and experimental.

  • Unfriended is from a new generation: film-makers who now have the web in their bloodstream, for whom online interaction is a natural part of life. They've used a new language to create a smart, ingenious, subversive and scary movie.

Audience Reviews for Unfriended

    Actually pretty alright, maybe the format has been utilised better elsewhere, but you still have to admire Unfriended's dedication, especially for all the way back in 2014. That dedication does have some drawbacks though, the devotion to the realism unfortunately also means realistically low quality webcam video & audio, as well as the realistic wait times I've using a computer. It felt like for so much of Unfriended I was just sitting there waiting for a page come up, or a file to download, or a response on an IM, and yes of course any computer user will absolutely have to wait for these things, but it's not what you go to the movies to see.

    A whiny, trashy, ridiculous movie that is predictable and laughable throughout. The script is so badly written i feel my dog could do better. Definitely targeted at teenagers who probably won't notice how bad this is.

    Creepy. The ending was not great, and the camera movements made me a bit nauseous, but it was entertaining.

    The "Never Have I Ever" sequence is one of my favourite cinematic moments of 2015. Fo serious!
