While video chatting one night, six high school friends receive a Skype message from Laura (Heather Sossaman), 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.
Also starring Cal Barnes, Matthew Bohrer, Courtney Halverson, Shelley Hennig, Renee Olstead, Will Peltz, Mickey River, Moses Jacob Storm and Jacob Wysocki, Unfriended – aka Cybernatural (its US title) – is released in the UK on May 1st. However, it doesn’t look particularly brilliant.
