While video chatting one night, six high school friends receive a Skype message from a classmate who killed herself exactly one year ago. A first they think it's a prank, but when the girl starts revealing the friends' darkest secrets, they realize they are dealing with something out of this world, something that wants them dead. Told entirely from a young girl's computer desktop, Unfriended redefines 'found footage' for a new generation of teens.

More Info:
  • Calum Marsh

    When the genre-film spectacle arrives, it's in full force, and the strictures of the framing device manage to amplify, rather than suppress, the impact of the shocks and scares.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    The filmmakers here completely commit to their gimmick, turning its limitations into benefits and exploiting the chosen technology for maximum effect. In the process, they hit the refresh button on the entire found-footage format.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    Director Levan Gabriadze is adept at the sinking something's not right creepiness too few horror films dig into. His techniques are certain to be copy-pasted by imitators.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    Unfriended commits to its idea and continually finds new ways to creatively exploit it, building the tension as each character reveals his or her own dark deeds, thus justifying the brutal vendettas visited upon them.

  • Brad Wheeler

    Perhaps Gabriadze has created a new genre here, but do we want to sit all day in front of an office computer and then go out and spend dollars to watch a small screen on a bigger screen for entertainment?

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Blowing this small-screen cyber horror tale out to the big screen makes for fresh and fearsome fun.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Clark Collis

    Though not particularly ground-breaking — last year’s Elijah Wood-starring Open Windows pulled the same trick, and much more ambitiously — we’re still going to “like” the result.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    What kind of a movie takes place entirely on one screwed-up teen's computer screen? That would be Unfriended, a creep-you-out experiment in terror that damn near pulls off every trick up its cyber sleeve.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Unfriended really does use everything teens cherish about their technology lifestyle against them. It’s a mean, potent little movie.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    No, it’s therefore a movie to be seen, if you can endure it — as a shrewd commercial venture, as an online opus that undoes your self-composure and, last and foremost, as a window on a mode of thinking that equates to a state of being.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    It's obvious that they're aiming for something more fun than genuinely haunting, and it helps that there is a good deal of humor used to punctuate the horror. It doesn't all land, but there's a fair amount of wit in something as simple as watching what someone types, deletes, then retypes.

    HitFix Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    If nothing else, Unfriended does an excellent job portraying the frenzy that is on-line teen interaction. This is the new equivalent of "hanging out."

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    More funny than scary.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    All we’re really in the end is the gimmick and an appreciation for how cleverly it comes off. And a reminder to not “answer messages from the dead.”

    Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    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.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    It's interesting to wonder how the film will age, given the short shelf life of technology. In two years all this might seem as dated as a dial-up modem, technology not nearly advanced enough to support the action here. But for now Unfriended lives in the moment, as do its characters.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    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.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    It reminds you that today’s horror movies still owe a great debt to Val Lewton, the producer of cheapie classics like “Cat People” (1942) and a virtuoso of shadows who realized that audiences could be entertained if the characters they watched looked like them. “Unfriended” doesn’t have Lewton’s poetry. Yet the filmmakers understand that one way into an audience’s head and nervous system is to fill the screen with the kind of “insipidly normal characters” (as the critic Manny Farber described Lewton’s) you’re happy to see shiver and scream.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    For everything here that’s new and exciting, there’s much that’s way too familiar. The kids are so one-dimensional and unpleasant, it’s hard to care once they start dying off.... Unfriended is often more innovative than scary, too, with some memorable but not particularly chilling and hilariously foreshadowed death scenes.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    Simultaneously clever and exasperating, the film puts a novel spin on the genre Roger Ebert dubbed “the Dead Teenager Movie.”

    Variety Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    A horror pic with a new gimmick that likely will spawn an entire subgenre of more substandard rubbish.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    The acting is actually pretty solid. These characters are never in the same room, so the performances amount to a collection of solo scenes. But these kids aren’t likable. 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.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    Unfriended is sometimes a blast to watch and is occasionally funny and unnerving, but by its conclusion it becomes screechy and overwrought.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Unfriended provides a modicum of chills and more gore than you’d expect.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Jacob Hall

    Unfortunately, the engine underneath that gloss is woefully familiar, offering the same jump scares we’ve seen a thousand times before.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    At times, Unfriended really clicks — but ultimately, it’s a drag.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • John DeFore

    In the end one would rather be back at one's own computer, tending to the tedious details of digital life, than watching this clique get pinged to death.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Mark Dujsik

    The movie might just make people associate bullying with a hollow, tedious endeavor that lacks any satisfaction. Full Review
  • Michael Ordona

    There’s no one to root for, not even the dead girl. Nothing seems important enough.

    Clever cybernatural thriller.
