Unfriended: Dark Web - The Internet's Deepest Secret

The internet is really a dark place to linger. As many of us have become dependent with technology, it has evolved into a scary place beyond the usual facade of cat videos and funny memes. This has been a marketplace of sin, deceit, and lies. With a scary story made from this concept was made in 2015, it is indeed time to have a sequel named Unfriended: The Dark Web.

From the name itself, it is already showing the uncharted place online where morbid things are stored and shared, unimaginable transactions and activities were done. This film has no connection with the previous one but follows the same format of everything happens in one screen.

It begins with a laptop Mattias (Woodell) "bought" from craigslist. With interactions with his friends and his special someone, he found himself dragged into a complicated situation where the owner of the laptop wants it back and it will eventually also get the others involved. Incredibly, it is updated with the new trends and the use of many apps and websites commonly used by most of us, which makes it scary. 

Unfriended: Dark Web  stars Colin Woodell, Rebecca Rittenhouse, Betty Gabriel, Andrew Lees, Connor Del Rio, Stephanie Nogueras, Savira Windyani.  Directed by Stephen Susco, now showing exclusively in SM Cinemas.

Deliberation time kids! 

Show summary: Internet Kills You Part 2

Quotable quote: "Recite the code"

Technical Effects: 4 out of 5 stars (With the complication of weaving them together into one screen, I think they must really adhere to what is needed to make interactions authentic)

Plot: 4 out of 5 stars (Though we only have one screen but multiple chat, the story had quite a number of twists that merit a thriller feel)

Acting and Actors: 3 out of 5 stars (Though I really feel that the acting was authentic, there are just moments that the scenes were scripted.) 

Pros:  Synchronization of events, use of common apps and websites, concept
Cons: Some exaggerated scenes that does not feel real just for the sake of still having them on screen

Music and Soundtracks:  3 out for 5 stars (They do have a cool spotify playlist) 

Overall: Rating 3.9 out of 5 stars (Though I have not seen the first Unfriended movie, it has set a standard on its own with a standalone story. Scary because it is possible, but you have to know a lot knowing some of them are not feasible.)
