Critic Reviews for Unfriended

All Critics (157) | Top Critics (35)

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.

You feel some mild critique of lives lived through web applications. What you don't feel is sustained visceral fright.

If you can give yourself over to the idea of Unfriended,you'll find it's surprisingly engrossing and really quite clever.

Perhaps director Gabriadze and writer Nelson Greaves intended to create a Social Media "Scream" and a commentary on cyber-bullying, but "Unfriended" comes across as disdainful of millennials.

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.
