From the producers of The Purge and Ouija and the director of Wanted comes an original thriller where a seemingly innocent prank starts a sequence of events that spirals out of control. Unfriended unfolds over a teenager’s computer screen as she and her friends are stalked by an unseen figure who seeks vengeance for a shaming video that led a vicious bully to kill herself. On the anniversary of the shocking suicide, the very same friends who thought there would be no consequences to their actions will find out just how deadly wrong they are.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Unfriended subverts found-footage horror clichés to deliver a surprisingly scary entry in the teen slasher genre with a technological twist.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Unfriended is a horror movie that appears to take place almost entirely via computer screen, using Skype webcam chats, Facebook messages, text messages, YouTube videos, Spotify music, etc. (the products'/services' real brand names are constantly shown and used). All of the main characters are teens; some of them drink or smoke pot on camera, and there are references to past substance use. Language is extremely strong, with many uses of "f--k" and much more. There's also plenty of sexual innuendo, references to sex acts, and flirting -- as well as a near-striptease (shown via webcam), though there's no actual nudity. Teens die in gory ways, with blood splatters and other shocking images (hand in a blender, impalement, hot curling iron shoved in someone's mouth, etc.), and teen suicide is shown (via a gunshot to the head) and discussed. Amid all of the scares and edgy content, the movie does raise relevant issues related to cyberbullying.
