The second installment of the Unfriended series has hit theaters and it definitely gives new meaning to game night. It also puts all those internet warnings you hear into real and horrifying prospective. When a new laptop means way more than a simple online game night with friends, the true capability of technology comes full force as a group of friends tumble blindly into the underbelly of the dark web. The move itself is just like sitting at the computer, Skyping with friends. You can see and hear everything that is happening on the other end of the internet. What turns out to be a set-up from the beginning, the dark web proves that once you start their game, there is no turning back.
The movie was hard to handle as a person who spends a lot of time on their computer. Unfriended: Dark Web proves that evil does exist and it can be brutal. I found the movie to be more a gruesome killing spree than a horror movie but it did a wonderful job of showing the capabilities of technology were far greater than I could imagine. The technology is simply outstanding. This is definitely not a movie for the faint of heart. It also shows not to just pick any laptop you find in the lost and found.
