Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average There are flashes of inspiration here...These things aren't much, but when dealing with something as stale and formulaic as "Friend Request," you have to take what you can get. One could say that it doesn't disappoint, although one would also have to lower the bar of expectations...

Slant Magazine Full Review
Poor It predictably utilizes Facebook to superficially spit-shine another wanly Americanized J-horror retread....Friend Request eventually arrives at its inevitable and somewhat offensive punchline: No death or dank hallway can rival the existential terror of having lunch alone in a college campus.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Popular college student Laura (Alycia Debnam-Carey) shares everything with her more than 800 Facebook friends. One day she accepts a friend request from classmate Marina (Liesl Ahlers), an awkward outcast. But when Laura excludes the hoodie-clad loner from her birthday party, she makes the mistake of posting pictures of the happy gathering. Outraged by the snub, and then devastated when Laura unfriends her, Marina kills herself, unleashing evil forces that commandeer Laura's Facebook page and post a video of Marina's gruesome suicide.

Soon, one by one, Laura's classmates Gustavo (Sean Marquette), Isabel (Brooke Markham) and Olivia (Brit Morgan) fall prey to demonic forces that include homicidal swarms of wasps. Laura's Facebook page is mysteriously hacked and begins displaying videos of each of her friends' horrific deaths, triggering a drop in Laura's social media followers and turning her into a campus pariah.

Kicked out of school for the out-of-control postings, Laura joins forces with her boyfriend Tyler (William Moseley) and tech-savvy friend Kobe (Connor Paolo) to try and stop the killings. Together, they uncover secrets of Marina's past and learn of her involvement with the ancient witchcraft of the "Black Mirror," which serves as a portal to evil spirits. Laura tracks the demonic forces' origins to a remote site where they face off against the deadly social media terror gone supernaturally viral.
