Unfriended

Unfriended

Kenia Bucio, Staff Writer

Unlike most teen horror films where the actors interact face-to-face, Unfriended is a movie that takes place with the actors interacting on the internet. While video chatting one night, six high school friends receive a Skype message from a classmate. What makes this a thriller interesting is that the classmate is dead, having killed herself a year earlier.

At first, they thought it was a hacker just pranking them. Laura, the girl who killed herself, was revealing each one of the students’ darkest secrets. They start realizing that they were dealing with something out of this world.

While they are Skyping, there’s a sixth person on the call, with the name “Billy” and no photo, and while they originally assume it’s some sort of glitch. Blair starts getting mysterious messages from Laura’s old Facebook page, and it soon becomes evident that the mystery “glitch” is Laura herself, here to torment the old “friends” who posted an embarrassing YouTube clip that pushed her to end her own life.

Laura tries to get them to confess about who posted the embarrassing video of her by asking them to play “never have I ever”. The 5 kids that are left agree to playing the game, if they deny to play Laura warned them telling them that they would die if they don’t play. By asking them questions they start revealing their darkest secrets.

In the last 10 minutes of the movie each one of the students die except for Blair. Laura asks Blair if she posted the video, she denies. Laura posted a video that reveals who actually posted the video and it turns out to be Blair. People that had Laura as a friend on Facebook would comment rude things about Blair. So basically at the end everything that was said to Laura before she died is now being said to Blair.
