7/6 My Thoughts On "Friend Request":




Review: Friend Request was surprisingly entertaining - the story centers around a popular college student Laura (Alycia Debnam-Carey "Fear The Walking Dead") unfriending a very lonely unpopular girl Marina (Liesl Ahlers) online.. Laura soon find herself in a dangerous situation that not only threatens her life but everyone around her.

Like I stated above, I found myself very entertained by this flick. It is was well directed with some strong performances and pretty good special effects..

Friend Request should not be confused with the 2013 flick of the same name or Unfriended.. Although Unfriended and Friend Request storylines have some similarities, this flick is 100% better..

As much as I enjoyed Friend Request, it does have some problems - mainly with the third act.. It is somewhat disjointed, plus there a couple illogical things that just didn't make sense..

Grade: B-
