The Internet can be a dark and scary place. Just look at the fake stories your friends and family post on Facebook or the evil messages and memes shared by white supremacists on Twitter. And that's just the legal stuff. Unfriended was a massive hit in 2015, earning 64 times its minuscule budget. Reviews were mixed, but even serious cinephiles praised it for its groundbreaking style – with most of the action taking place on a computer screen, holding the audience’s focus and making it ideal for home viewing – even if its scares weren't as original.
Since every successful horror movie has to become a franchise, a sequel was never in doubt. While the new Unfriended: Dark Web doesn't share any cast members, it has the same disturbing real-life horror vibe and all-on-the-screen aesthetic.
The film stars Betty Gabriel (Get Out), Rebecca Rittenhouse (The Mindy Project) and Andrew Lees (The Originals). Check out the poster below.
