I know I am posting after a long time, but I’m going to be brutally honest, I’ve been lazy and I had lost the inspiration to write on this blog. Fear no more.. I’ve returned and this time the inspiration is back as well.
2015 has been a year of horror because many films have been released. Insidious 3, Poltergeist and several others have been released and several others are set to be released a little later on. I’m most excited for the second part of the Sinister series, it looks pretty terrifying.
Anyways now to get to the main topic of this blog post. 2015 marked the release of the movie ‘Unfriended’. I saw the trailer in like mid February and my mind was instantly was made up, it looked like it was worth a watch and the fact the concept of the movie looked pretty fresh and new. I was most glad when I dragged a friend to actually go watch it. The atmosphere we saw it in was perfect, there weren’t many people as it was the last show of the night.
The movie is set in a way that we are not familiar with, it’s classified as a cyber-horror.. (the beginning of a new genre?) The whole movie is shown through one of the characters ‘Macbook’ computer screen. I enjoyed the plot of the movie and the fact that it holds several unexpected twists and turns. The whole movie gave me chills because in a generation such as ours, technology has already taken over. And the fact that these group of teenagers are being messed with on normal websites such as Skype or Facebook is pretty terrifying. So the next time you are skyping with grandma, BEWARE! Some paranormal force may be eavesdropping on your conversation and messing with you, only to find out its grandpa.
I loved this movie and recommend it to everyone, it is definitely worth a watch and I can’t wait till the sequel of this film comes out in 2016.
I will post soon,
