Unfriended: Dark Web is a new age thriller/ horror that in its own unique way is made to strike fear and awareness to the underworld of the internet, and it does its job perfectly. Delving deep within this entity, this movie opens a glitch behind the matrix where you will find different lakes leading to bigger rivers and banks that are full of dark surprises, annnnd some parts where it is just predictable. Not following along the story of the original Unfriended, this movie in my opinion is much better. This film has more mystery and suspense , the wondering of “WHY” moments which makes this film one of Blumhouse’s most evil movies ever made. Damn whoever thought that a simple possession could lead to a “GAME” of pure regret!
This movie, honestly, didn’t seem like a winner. Bunch of twenty somethings playing online, something bad happens, slash, slash, bang bang, boring. Almost like the old slasher movies of the 80s. I do have to admit though, I was wrong! It starts out slow, but definitely give it a chance. I guarantee you, you will not be disappointed! It builds slowly, but gets crazy, sooner than you think.
Without giving anything away, keep your mind wide open, watch, learn, remember that this is actually plausible, then realize that this is only a movie. If you like this genre of film, you will love the finale. Simply ride it out, you will see that the pay off is worth it! I give this movie 3.5 out of 5 of your choices burger, it is very predictable but entertaining. Don’t expect greatness but expect the plausibility! Blumhouse is definitely evil but provides awareness of how deep and how dark the internet can be. Check it out, enjoy and provide your feedback! And remember, Norah C IV sent you! (You will understand when you witness it). Come back and get more from the movie man and continue to get your grub on!!
