A few years ago, an online chat went horribly wrong in the low budget horror film from Blumhouse, Unfriended. I was not one of the admirers of the horror film unfolding on a computer screen though many of my colleagues enjoyed the film quite a bit. Well, because Unfriended cost such little to produce and basically turned a profit on its opening day, it made sense for producer Jason Blum to back a sequel, and now here comes the first trailer for writer-director Stephen Susco‘s Unfriended: Dark Web.
The computer-themed horror sequel stars the young and relatively unknown cast, including Betty Gabriel, Colin Woodell, Andrew Lees, and Connor Del Rio. It’s these unfortunate souls who will find something dark and menacing lurking on the information super highway.
Unfriended: Dark Web premiered at this year’s South by Southwest festival to mostly acclaim, suggesting that this horror sequel might pack a bit more of a punch that its predecessor. Blumhouse Tilt will unleash Unfriended: Dark Web into theaters on July 20, 2018.
The official synopsis for Unfriended: Dark Web:
Unfolding in real-time UNFRIENDED: DARK WEB is the most terrifying horror yet from the producer of GET OUT, HAPPY DEATH DAY and THE PURGE, and the makers of UNFRIENDED. When a 20-something finds a cache of hidden files on his new laptop, he and his friends are unwittingly thrust into the depths of the dark web. They soon discover someone has been watching their every move and will go to unimaginable lengths to protect the dark web.
