As far as the horror genre goes, there ain't a heap to look forward to this year. I mean sure, there's the new Poltergeist remake, Phantasm Ravager, aaaand.... well, that's about it really. Saying this, there's a lesser-known indie flick that I think will be truly original and fantastic,so if you're intrigued to find out, read on!
From director Levan Gabriadze (Lucky Trouble) comes the all new psychological horror-thriller flick 'Unfriended' (also known as 'Cybernatural'), which centers around a group of young friends who find themselves haunted by a paranormal entity, which is using an online chat room to mentally and psychically attack the terrified teens.
Although we've certainly seen our fair share of cliche filled indie horror movies featuring less than intelligent teen protagonists (*ahem* Ouija), I have a feeling that 'Unfriended' will be somewhat different to all the rest. Why? Simply because it's set around Skype, and other social networks - something that 99% of us use, most of us on a daily basis. Something so simple and common, which can quickly become your worst nightmare.
"Six high school friends with a dark secret receive a Skype message from a classmate who committed suicide a year ago after someone uploaded a video of her online."
Rated 6.7/10 on IMDB (higher than classics like Friday the 13th, Candyman, The Blair Witch Project and The Grudge), Unfriended will hopefully become a modern day indie-horror classic, just like The Babadook and Oculus. The flick is set for release on April 17th, so will YOU be checking it out?
