7/5 My Thoughts On "UNFRIENDED":

RANT/Review "Unfriended": A group of online chat room friends find themselves haunted by a mysterious, supernatural force using the account of their dead friend.

There will be **SPOILERS**

Unfriended' is about a group of annoying teenagers sitting in front of the computer skyping for the entire film. Oh yeah and apparently the ghost of a young woman (Laura) who committed suicide over bullying because of her former best friend (Blaire), decided to upload a very horrendous video of Laura and post it online.. Think they were best friends - honestly can't remember.. Anywayssss. Around a year later Blaire (without a care in the world) is skyping with her boyfriend and a few friends.. The pissed off ghost of Laura (user name billie227) decides to join the conversation and starts playing games with them, she slowly begins taking out this group of jackasses one by one..

Unfortunately you don't really get to see any of the kills because apparently these morons are still using dial up from the early 2000's. The video feeds/live streaming are constantly freezing up, jumping and pixelating. Note to filmmakers enough with this bullshit effect. It's annoying as hell and does nothing to advance the plot.. Unfriended' is a miserable film, with terrible cliche characters.. The premise of the film is somewhat interesting - but the story is so poorly execution, the flick just falls flat.. I do think it would have worked as a short film, but not in a 83 minute feature film..

The only thing I liked is when Blaire gets what's coming to her, she is a horrible person! For the longest time I've had "The Blair Witch Project" as my number one worst horror film of all time.. Sad to say but I now have a new number one..

Unfriended gets a Grade: F
