Sometimes, simple is still the best, and Unfriended is, at least on the surface, just that: a film told in real time and entirely through the perspective of one girl’s laptop computer screen. How she perceives one night. One freaking terrifying night.

Simultaneously clever and exasperating, the film puts a novel spin on the genre Roger Ebert dubbed “the Dead Teenager Movie.”

There’s a rigor to its dopey, blood-simple conception that you might smile at.

Even with an 82-minute running time, cracks start to show. One of the key problems with the script is that every single character is so utterly obnoxious and morally bankrupt that you start to relish their increasingly nasty deaths.

For everything here that’s new and exciting, there’s much that’s way too familiar.

One would rather be back at one's own computer, tending to the tedious details of digital life, than watching this clique get pinged to death.
