Unfriended: Dark Web (2018)


Critic Consensus: Unfriended: Dark Web is more interested in chills than an exploration of its timely themes, but horror fans should still find this sequel to be steadily, undeniably effective.

Critic Reviews for Unfriended: Dark Web

All Critics (107) | Top Critics (17)

Despite characters whose individual plights would be just as boring to describe as they are to watch, Dark Web is just weird and ingenious enough to recommend.

Top Critic

It adds up to little, despite a fine Hitchcockian twist of a single transgression leading inevitably to doom.

Jul 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Dark Web skates by on saturated nastiness, one terrific kill, and the audience's engagement in seeing if the filmmakers can pull off the stunt. Barely, but it's fun to watch them try.

Top Critic

No fun because it's just too real... a clever concept of cinematic design and storytelling, it proves to only be a deeply chilling cautionary tale.

Jul 20, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Susco understands that the purpose of any horror film is to deliver shocks and suspense and he succeeds in that regard.

Jul 20, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Nasty in its narrative and nifty in its aesthetic, Stephen Susco's new film is a solid argument against doing anything remotely illicit online.

Audience Reviews for Unfriended: Dark Web

Something that I've noticed recently in horror franchises that have tried to get off the ground in the past couple of years, the second entry is actually better than the first. In ages past, a thing unheard of, but now at least as common as not. Same goes for Unfriended: Dark Web. Just about everything is one step up from the first Unfriended movie: Acting, AV, urgency, the shorter wait times, and the new direction Dark Web takes in terms of its antogonists (I won't spoil it for you, but surely you're capable of reading a title and putting it together for yourself) works better in this one too. I feel at least. Now neither of these films are perfect, but the first Unfriended movie was okaaaaaaaaay, and this one has managed to push it by the skin of it's teeth over in to what I could honestly argue is "good".

I have no idea how much of what goes down in this movie is based in reality, but even if it has only a shred of truth to it this more than scared the shit out of me. #Shook

Unlike it's predecessor this one fails to find anything remotely scary in its premise, which seems odd given the move away from the supernatural.

For quite some time, this is a solid sequel that grows carefully and steadily scary (with even some terrifying moments) before deciding to venture into faux-supernatural territory and coming up with a big twist in the end that is too preposterous to make much sense.
