WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
During a video chat one night, a group of friends receive a Skype message from Laura Barns (Sossaman), a classmate who one year earlier had committed suicide after an embarrassing video of her was anonymously posted online. After ‘Laura’ starts revealing the friends’ darkest secrets, the friends realise that this is not a prank and that someone legitimately wants vengeance against one of them for posting the video in the first place…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
Told almost entirely from the perspective of a Skype video call, Unfriended is a unique found-footage movie that could redefine the genre for the better.
