… and it’s really bad.
I like when movies fits in the era we are living in, using stuff like Skype, Twitter, Facebook or some of those platforms. ‘Unfriended’, which previously had the horrible title ‘Cybernatural’, relies completely on Skype and I’m very worried about that. I’ve heard this is actually a good movie with some great performances, but the acting looks really bad in what I saw in this trailer. The premise is very intriging, though.
I will not narrate the trailer, I’m just assuming you’re going to see. I feel that these 2:46 minutes tell way to much about the film. There’s so much in this trailer: death scenes, some creppy (and smart) stuff. But I also made some research and found some reviews from people who had the chance to watch this movie at Fantasia Fest, and turns out this is not telling the whole movie, but again, it tells way too much.
Lucky people who saw Unfriended last year say this is a good movie that manages to be clever, creepy and they say the relationship between the cast is very natural. Also, it has this anti-cyberbullying message which is good to hear.
But, not too fast, don’t make this a “new genre”.
