Your Quick & Simple Review: “Unfriended: Dark Web”

Matias (Colin Woodell) discovers hidden files on his new laptop, while chatting online with his girlfriend, Amaya (Stephanie Nogueras) and a small group of friends.  But when the previous owner discovers Matias is online using it, things take a turn for the worse.

Just like the first Unfriended film I was intrigued by the story but was disappointed with the execution.  Even though there were a couple of good, flinch in your seat, moments, it wasn’t enough to save either one.

First, I had a hard time keeping up with all the desktop app changes that were going on.  And even though it seemed like they were trying to take it easy with the technical talk, it was still kinda hard to follow.  Then you add in the over enthusiastic acting and scenes that have you wondering why they did this or that.  Including why is it taking so long to get somewhere.   As a a fan of horror movie flicks waiting and waiting for something to happen is probably the worst thing you can do to viewers.
