Centered around the suicide of a classmate a year prior, six friends experience harassment through Skype from appears to be the account of their dead friend. Blaire (Shelley Hennig) is the lovable main character of the film, along with her boyfriend Mitch. Their relationship becomes challenged, as do the friendship between all six friends, when the "dead friend" harasses them into playing a game. If they don't play the game, they die. If they play, well...you'll have to watch and find out.

Secrets are revealed. Relationships are challenged. Friendships (and hearts) are broken. And lives are ended.

It's not necessarily an amazing horror film, but it's definitely its own subgenre, one that I hope to see more of. The closest thing I could compare it to would be found-footage, as it all takes place over Skype, which made it feel much more real than the average horror film.

The only unrealistic thing about it was the supernatural hacking and a ghost killing them through Skype.

Nonetheless, it's unique and the way it was filmed makes it feel more realistic, so I applaud director Levan Gabriadze and writer Nelson Greaves. I was almost in tears at one point because the drama and tension felt so real, and I felt bad for some of the characters. I think some of them can be seen as having deserved their deaths (horror movie wise at least), even though death is harsh. They all made mistakes, but don't we all?

Overall, I would recommend the film. It's different, it's its own, and it feels real when you're watching it. That's the kind of horror film I love and wish to see more of.
