alycia friend requestThe metaphysical techno-thriller is the emerging fashion in horror cinema, represented by films like the Unfriended (2014) and The Den (2013), that we have seen in recent years. On this course it moves and the German-born rookie director Simon Verhoeven with his latest work Friend Request. The Internet and social media are used as a basic raw material for the production of terror. The youthful audience, being familiar with the specific technology, you won't find it difficult to assimilate the concept of Friend Request and on this bet justified the filmmakers.

The conditions are ideal, as the non-saturated topic leaves room for fresh ideas and innovations, that could enrich the scene of horror. Interpretive cast doing relatively well and the occasional tromares, along with the backing down of special effects, are the main Trump of the Friend Request. However, the film gradually dwindled in terms of interest, with the chiliopaigmena cliche, the poor dialogue and endless jump scares to form a hackneyed image, fails to delight the discerning viewer.

Horror Trivia

The film's original name was Unknown Error, which eventually changed to avoid confusion with the similar Cybernatural thriller (Unfriended).


We are dealing with another supernatural horror film, that will be forgotten quickly, charamizontas the opportunity to effectively combine the current technological reality with genuine horror. See the Friend Request only if you feel horribly addicted to social media! I regretted it.
