Social Media Gets Nasty In UNFRIENDED Trailer
That social media is very frequently anti-social in the extreme is really not news at this point, with virtually everyone having a handful of stories of horrible things 'friends' have said or done to each other online. But despite the pervasiveness of such behavior social media has not really been explored to any great extent on film as of yet, and this is precisely what director Levan Gabriadze and producers Timur Bekmambetov and Jason Blum are diving into with Unfriended.

Releasing April 17th, the novel horror film takes place entirely on the computer screen of its young protagonist and fuses social media interaction with another phenomenon unique to the past decade - namely the continuing online presence of the dead.

While video chatting one night, six high school friends receive a Skype message from a classmate who killed herself exactly one year ago. At first they think it's a prank, but when the girl starts revealing the friends' darkest secrets, they realize they are dealing with something out of this world, something that wants them dead. Told entirely from a young girl's computer desktop, Unfriended redefines 'found footage' for a new generation of teens.
Trailers for this one are pretty effective stuff, take a look below.
