Unfriended Trailer: When Social Media Kills!

After being humiliated by a video posted by friends, a young girl: Laura Barns, takes her life.  Now a year later, her “friends” hold a 7 way Skype call to decide their big group vacation. But things take an odd turn, when Laura’s old Skype account keeps trying to contact them. Soon friends start dying, and unless someone reveals who posted the video that caused Laura to taker her life, more will continue.

Skeptical would be a strong word I would use when describing my reaction to this film. While I think it’s an interesting prospect, doing a film entirely from Skype, I’m dubious of doing it for an hour and half. This style of film was actually tried once before in another horror movie V/H/S. Though that was only 15 minutes long and in my opinion was the weakest of the anthology of shorts in the film. But getting back to the trailer, to me, it doesn’t really offer anything new. Found footage has become the go-to when it comes to quick horror movie film making, which isn’t always a bad thing and can produce some cool titles. To make a long story short, I’m not that impressed but I wish the film the best.  What did you think of the trailer?
