Critic Reviews for Unfriended

All Critics (180) | Top Critics (41)

It's a premise that seems ridiculous until you start to realize it might actually be brilliant, or at least charmingly clever.

November 10, 2015

I'll admit the film held my attention but I left the theater unsatisfied, which I think will be a common reaction among those not within the demographic niche for which the production was mounted.

This is clever, even poignant stuff. Oldies as well as adolescents will find themselves intrigued.

In the cinema, the static setup, fuzzy, pixellating Skype faces, and the parps of incoming messages all become profoundly irritating.

Top Critic

Unfriended is genuinely innovative and experimental.

April 30, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Credibly using actual programs rather than made-up ones, Unfriended makes hay with such cultural ephemera as the "memorialise" function for a Facebook account, which enables the pages of deceased friends to have an afterlife.

Audience Reviews for Unfriended

Okay, ending was a bit silly, but considering this story takes place entirely on one girl's computer screen, I found this an original and interesting idea. It had me quite tense in a few places, so overall I would say it it works.

An exhausted and cliched version of the modern day dangers of the web.

More efficient than other recent "computer windows" horror flicks like The Den and Open Windows, it knows how to build tension and is clever to show what the protagonist is thinking through the way she writes (and sometimes erases before sending) messages on her computer screen.
