Unfriended is a pure distillation of exploitation cinema.

It's not going to go down as a horror classic, but it should be appreciated for what it is: a stupidly fun movie.

A creatively bankrupt product of the Internet generation that lacks any real sense of purpose or innovation, leaving the audience wishing we could just hit CTRL-ALT-DELETE and put us out of our misery.

Kudos to director Leo Gabriadze, working from a tight script by Nelson Greaves, for creating suitable tension and sustaining it throughout the film's running time.

Despite the interesting premise, the problems in this film are too infantile to truly scare audiences. [Full Review in Spanish]

En vez de aceptar su estúpida naturaleza, Eliminar amigo prefiere huir de ella.

It's clear that the cast and crew had fun with "Unfriended," and that fun carries over to the audience. It's unlike anything you've seen before, but will likely be the new blueprint for the genre.

While it's hardly a nonstop bloodbath, there are jolts of gory violence that provide worthy horror punch, and the dialogue is naturalistic in its use of hard slang.

It worked as a way to teach teens to be more compassionate when it comes to cyber bullying, and it effectively demonstrated that whatever you put on the internet is there forever.

The metatextual implications of the film serve to make the whole experience deeply unsettling in a way that ghostly jump scares never could.

....It's also hard to re-create the same type of tension as other horror films; much like a badly shot found footage film; we don't see enough to truly horrify us.

With some decent performances and genuine scares, Unfriended is a clever, fun horror film that you will only need to see once.

The centrality of the laptop screen in Unfriended has been identified by some critics as a new or experimental take on found footage horror, but this is not the first film to use this idea.
August 24, 2018
Unfriended successfully sets up a more modern format for horror and the socially conscious but doesn't stray to far from the warm embrace of tired jump-scares and screaming.

It is just one unsurprising death after another.
February 14, 2018
It is highly inventive, but rather disappointing.

Who the hell knew you could deliver real scares by blending horror and cyberspace?

You end up following illogical plot points, and want to see just how the story ends. The pay-off is goofy, sure. But it's still a good film to catch up on a late night with friends over.

Unless you're a hardcore horror nerd, Unfriended is not essential viewing. But it is a surprisingly decent film, and the real-life framework for the narrative gives the movie a little extra punch.

The entire picture takes place on one of the protagonist's laptop - is the only original thing going on. The rest consists of tiresome Dead Teen clichés that have haunted movie theaters since the days of Halloween III.
