Friend Request Review



Director: Simon Verhoeven

Stars: Alycia Debnam-Carey, William Moseley and Connor Paolo


When a college student unfriends a mysterious girl online, she finds herself fighting a demonic presence that wants to make her lonely by killing her closest friends.

This movie is the perfect lesson in being careful who you accept a friend request from. A horror for the social media generation and I have to say despite some of the negative reviews it got, I quite enjoyed it!!

Alycia Debnam-Carey who you will know from Fear the Walking Dead carried the film with a great performance leaving the other actors in her shadow. The story was good and kept a steady pace, throwing in the odd twist to the tale as there was a lot more to the isolated Marina than Laura and her friends realised.

In the style of most modern horrors the jump scares were a plenty and I got caught on everyone even when I knew they were coming lol. Add that to some cool kills and you have yourself a not so bad horror 

3/5
