Movie Review: Unfriended

 

Unfriended_840x1200

This was a movie I went into with the lowest of expectations. I mean just watch the trailer and you will know what I mean. It looks absolutely ridiculous. No seriously, if you haven’t seen the trailer, stop what you are doing and go watch it. I’ll wait……

You see what I mean…. Ok so brief summary. This movie is about a group of friends in High school I suppose. One of the friends kills themselves due to a horrible video released that went viral at her school. (Bullying is a serious matter) Anyways….  Laura Barnes kills herself. On the anniversary of her death, her group of friends hop on a Skype group video chat…. Only… there is someone else in the group chat. After many failed attempts to remove this creepy stranger. The group just decides to carry on ignoring the mystery person. Until the Mystery person makes himself/herself known..Who is this mystery person??? Is it someone playing a joke????? What do they want???  You will have to watch the movie!!!! But The mystery guest wants to play a game… a game of truths. How will the game end? Okay if you don’t mind spoilers please continue… This movie is just awful but its also very entertaining. Would I pay to watch this movie? Probably not, but if you’re home alone, or having a movie night with your significant other, or a girls sleep over and its free…. Sure!!! I say give it a try. If nothing else, you will laugh at it.

If you mind spoilers… this is where I leave you, and you should come back when you’ve seen it.

Ok this movie is horrible but it was also very entertaining. I don’t know about you, but It was really interesting being the “fly on the wall” sharing the screen with Blair as she was in the group chat, surfing the net, and talking to her boyfriend. However, Each time a friend killed themselves, I couldn’t help but laugh. I mean they didn’t show much as to what was happening, but what they did had me laughing my ass off. I mean How did Ken’s face actually fit in this blender?!?!?!?! And How in the world did Val die? She was in the laundry room. Tell me why the police didn’t pick up the laptop to see all of those “witnesses” Seriously!!!! Then we have Jess’s death DEATH BY CURLING IRON IN HER THROAT!!!!!! I literally shouted “No!!!” I know that shit hurt. I cry out when its my damn finger! Can you even imagine the painful death that poor girl endured?! It was really terrible. I mean each death was even more ridiculous than the last.

As awful as I thought this movies was, I couldn’t tear my eyes away. I can’t say for sure that I didn’t like it. As far as the cheesiness of this movie it was horrible! Was I entertained? Yes…So On a scale of 1 to 10 stars, I give it a 4 for at least keeping me engaged throughout the movie.
