Happy Passover/Ostara/Easter/Zombie Day! I throw that last one in as a tie-in (and because let’s face it; it’s funny) for these new images for the coming-soon horror film Unfriended. No, no zombies…at least I don’t think so. Why not read the synopsis from the PR posse?
Ushering in a new era of horror, Universal Pictures’ Unfriended unfolds over a teenager’s computer screen as she and her friends are stalked by an unseen figure who seeks vengeance for a shaming video that led a vicious bully to kill herself a year earlier.
After Universal executives saw a test screening of Unfriended terrify a test audience, the studio acquired the thriller that was developed and conceived by visionary filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter). Directed by Levan Gabriadze, Unfriended is written by Nelson Greaves, produced by Bekmambetov and Greaves, and executive produced by Jason Blum for Blumhouse Productions (Ouija and Paranormal Activity, The Purge and Insidious series). http://www.unfriendedmovie.com
I’m very interested in this film, and not only because it’s a horror film. I’m intrigued by it’s tying horror, bullying, teen suicide, and the found-footage genre. Plus, I kinda liked Bekmambetov’s earlier works, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Wanted. Peep at the images, and see if you’re just as intrigued.
Unfriended hits theaters April 17th, 2015.
