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.

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

You might find yourself rooting for the murderer.

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

Even with an 82-minute running time, cracks start to show. One of the key problems with the script is that every single character is so utterly obnoxious and morally bankrupt that you start to relish their increasingly nasty deaths.

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.

It's not the B-movie gore death scenes that make Unfriended squirm-inducing, it's how it taps in and holds on tight to how annoying the Internet and computers can be, especially when they're being tinkered with.

Even though Unfriended begins to cheat, springing loud noises and gory cutaways that can't be explained, there's a rigor to its dopey, blood-simple conception that you might smile at.

Superficially, this is a horror movie, although its distinct lack of such important elements as mounting suspense and genuine scares forces us to think otherwise.

If death invented the telephone, it probably invented the Internet infernal, too. Disconnect? The scariest thing is that we can't.

If it has a point about the way we treat people online, it's lost in an illogical ghost story that never bothers explaining itself.
April 16, 2015
As a harangue about cyberbullying, it's purely exploitative, but when "Unfriended" zeros in on the whiplash mixture of freedom and torment we get from multitasking our online lives? It's srsly fun, imo.
April 16, 2015
A horror pic with a new gimmick that likely will spawn an entire subgenre of more substandard rubbish.
April 16, 2015
At times, "Unfriended" really clicks - but ultimately, it's a drag.

The efficient exposition is entirely composed of a LiveLeak video and half a YouTube clip. It's supremely goofy and not scary in the slightest, but the movie is speaking the right language.
