Unfriended: Dark Web Review
I really enjoyed the first Unfriended movie based on how it was filmed and played out so of course I had to watch the sequel? Honestly, I think I preferred this one.
Unfriended: Dark Web follows a group of friends who are doing a Skype call that they seem to do a lot. The main character we follow is Matias, a lad who has recently gained a new laptop. As he’s Skyping with his friends and speaking to his girlfriend (whom he’s having issues with) he starts to notice weird things with the laptop and it turns out this is connected to the dark web.
Now here’s where it gets interesting, this laptop isn’t only connected to the dark web but also is in a ring of extreme porn addicts who love snuff porn, mainly involving young girls. Soon the owner of the laptop realises who has it and Matias has to work with his friends to try and save himself, his girlfriend and them, before things take an even darker turn.
The reason I think I enjoy this film more than the original is due to the fact that this one is real. The dark web is a real thing so is kind of more believable than the spirit demon of the first movie. This could happen to someone and altogether this movie just felt better made and more exciting. The characters, although some annoying and frustrating, all had their stories fleshed out and I love how they were fully involved too and not just used as characters to be killed off.
While it did still have some issues, I know based on being a Mac user, it is a fun movie with an interesting twist (that I didn’t find the most believable) and will keep you hooked and constantly wondering what will happen next.
What do you think?
Until next time.
