Unfriended was surprisingly good for a gimmicky horror flick built around social media (that old chestnut) and it made a fair bit of bank, so inevitably we’re getting a sequel of sorts in the form of Unfriended: Dark Web. The weird thing is, it looks pretty decent.
“Unfolding in real-time Unfriended: Dark Web is the most terrifying horror yet from the producer of Get Out, Happy Death Day and The Purge, and the makers of Unfriended.
“When a 20-something finds a cache of hidden files on his new laptop, he and his friends are unwittingly thrust into the depths of the dark web. They soon discover someone has been watching their every move and will go to unimaginable lengths to protect the dark web.
“Written and directed by Stephen Susco (The Grudge), Unfriended: Dark Web is produced by Timur Bekmambetov, Bazelevs Productions and Jason Blum, Blumhouse Productions.”
Unfriended: Dark Web is in cinemas from August 9, 2018. It would be absolutely thematically appropriate to download a cam copy from some dodgy, malware-riddled site, but don’t do that.
