I don’t know about you, but I’m already stoked that Halloween is coming. Yes, next month. The end of next month. But it’s so close you can taste the PSL, amirite? (Seriously, pumpkin spice everything is already here. You know what to do.)
So I’ve been streaming horror movies like crazy, gearing up for my yearly “31 in 31” in October…but I’ve also got passes to some spooky. Passes to Friend Request, in fact. Which may make you re-think your social media presence… Synopsis!
Popular college student Laura (Alycia Debnam-Carey) has tons of friends, both on Facebook and IRL. She graciously accepts social outcast Marina’s (Liesl Ahlers) online friend request, until Marina crosses the line and Laura unfriends her. To everyone’s shock, Marina takes her own life in a ritual meant to torment Laura, which appears in a video posted on Laura’s profile. Even though it wasn’t Laura who posted the video, or other creepy content that begins appearing on her page, her Facebook friend count begins to dwindle as a result. When her real-life friends start dying mysterious, cruel deaths, Laura must figure out how to break the deadly curse before it’s too late.
