Cutting to the emotional core of what social media says about us, the result is as much a time capsule of our relationship to (and reliance upon) modern technology as it is a cutting-edge digital thriller.

Chaganty’s tab-toggling is pacy enough, but he gets pedantic about tying up unfinished digital business, and Unfriended’s pulse-raising wildness is beyond him.

Virtually the entire story is told via screens large and small and, with Chaganty's sharp direction, it's a brilliant way of creating both an intimate, voyeuristic feel and generating tension for the audience.

The movie's arresting visual conceit has enough flexibility to sustain interest, even if the story's twists and turns sometimes feel excessively fiendish.

The smart visual trickery lifts what might otherwise have been a fairly conventional thriller, but it also lets Chaganty say some interesting things about our online lives.

Techno Thriller

Takes the 'Unfriended' concept and brings it to a whole new level. I remained gripped for the entirety of this film and is an extremely effective and well made thriller that is great to watch with a friend.

It'll keep you guessing as he continues browsing.

Its shocking, thought-provoking and relevant in its time; well-directed and performed with enough thrills to keep you on edge (most of the time).

This movie had me on the edge of my seat for the whole movie and the way it was portrayed was rather ingenious.

This had to be one of the worst movies that I have ever watched. Where are the good movies?
