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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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 spinning pinwheel of death now has blood on its rainbow segments. Unfriended is your actual digital nightmare come to life.

There are some noteworthy thrills amongst a plethora of urgent details.

Unfriended is a well-executed, refreshingly innovative little horror movie featuring teenagers behaving the way teenagers actually behave.

...takes seemingly benign, everyday technology and turns it into a vehicle for menace.

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.

A surprisingly decent little horror film...

Unfriended hit me out of left field and in the best possible way. I was expecting an empty-headed teen horror flick that would rely on cheap jump scares but, instead, Gabriadze creates a palpable sense of tension that's creeps up on you throughout.
