A teen comes into possession of a new laptop and soon discovers that the previous owner is not only watching him, but will also do anything to get it back.
Horror - This is a sequel in name only to the first film of a few years ago,
but while there are no directly related characters or story elements,
this is also a horror film that takes place in real time and told
entirely through a computer screen. There are no known actors in the
film. Violence, mild sexual content, and language make the film not
Roger EbertFull Review Poor The biggest difference between the two films is that "Unfriended" is dynamic and cruel while "Unfriended: Dark Web" is unbelievably stupid and sadistic. Neither movie is especially smart or incisive about the Way We Live Now, but they don't really have to be.
Slant MagazineFull Review Good The film is preposterously conceived, but Stephen Susco so tightly, excitingly executes it that you hardly notice.
NewsdayFull Review Average Some effective scares, but this sequel lacks the freshness and humor of the 2015 original. What hampers the scares and shivers is the overly complicated screenplay..."Dark Web” deserves credit for pushing a limited concept about as far as it can go. Like the first film, it might be a spookier experience if viewed on your own laptop.
The GuardianFull Review Above Average ...unfolds like a tantalizing mystery thriller, each detail grimier than the last, building up to an effectively nasty underworld of online evil. The online framework is used for some inventive suspense...
