    Surprisingly Good

    Its are and hard to find a good horror movie anymore, especially an original non franchised horror movie. Unfriended seemed to be at best questionable and to some laughable when the trailers for the movie initially were released, however, shockingly enough this is actually a pretty solid horror movie. The premise has been done a couple times. More recently I-Lived and Open Windows come to mind but Unfriended no doubt accomplished the "found footage/first person computer horror movie" gimmick best. The idea here is the the audience is watching the whole movie first hand through the computer screen. That means webcam, youtube, cellphone, etc, footage. Obviously the photography and the way the movie's shot isn't going to win any awards but the scares are solid and the premise is one that seems realistic enough that you're able to believe the film and all its plot, even putting yourself, if your young and get technology, in the actors shoes. A easily overlooked, but necessary, film that any horror fan should see.

    The movie brought a new meaning to the word, "cyber." I mean the movie was good, it was not spectacular or bad even. It was just average. I felt like I was watching American Pie with all the messenger chats and stuff mixed with The Blaire Witch Project. Lol! All of the chats, skype videos, and No Need To Be Scared! the Facebook instant messages.I felt like I was looking at myself and so many other who cyber chat in today's society. The same noises, the same icons, the same rings and sounds you hear on Skype, Yahoo, and everything made the film so realistic and very believable, to me at least.

    A horror film done in a new way. I love how it is inventive, with the Web Cam as the main camera. The whole movie is done on the Internet. Couldn't make out some of what was happening, when someone got murdered. It killed the suspense for me. Halloween Resurrection used the Internet in a better way to fill the movie. Bad camera angles & confusing camera shots. Story concept was simple but interesting. Because of the bad camera issues, I gave it a 4 stars instead of 5.

    When I first saw the commercials for this movie, I thought it would be pretty bad; however, the reviews weren't as bad as I'd thought, so I decided to pick it up. It was better than I'd first expected, and had a number of good scares to it. Judging from what was apparently left out and alternate takes described on-line, however, it could have been better. It IS a good cautionary tale against cyber-bullying, though.

    I first saw this movie at the theater and had to buy when it came out. It's great for anyone who is an online person that uses spootify and online chatting like Google. Definitely recommend parents check it out too because this is a story of what can really happen online when not watching your kids on the Internet and this movie shows that how chatting with the wrong person can get out of hand. Great movie 10/10.

    99.5% OF THE MOVIE YOU ARE FIXED ON WATCHING A LAPTOP SCREEN. THE SMALL SCARY DEATH SCENES YOU SEE IN THE PREVIEW IS IT. THE VIDEO OF THE GIRL KILLING HERSELF IN THE PREVIEW IS FROM YOUTUBE BUT YOU ARE WATCHING A LAPTOP SCREEN FROM ONE OF THE MAIN CHARACTERS. BOTTOM LINE: WORST MOVIE EVER. TAKE $26 AND FLUSH IT DOWN THE TOILET. ITS SO MUCH BETTER THAN THIS MOVIE.

    This movie takes a new look at horror using social media, I love new takes on horror movies! Most of the movie was really good in my opinion however I feel the movie could've done better with us guessing what happened to Blair, instead of revealing that weak ending. But it had a great beginning, great suspense build up, everything was great except for the ending.

    I have never seen a movie so slow and boring in my life....the entire movie was like watching someone online thru their eyes. It was long and boring. Your interest is peeked when you start out, but as time goes on you fall asleep, you lose interest, and then you ask yourself....is the entire movie like this? Yes! Yes it is....do not buy this movie.....
