Let's Talk Movies: Unfriended

By now it is no secret that I love scary movies.  I was interested to watch Unfriended. Going into this movie I knew the gist of it. Friends were being contacted on the interwebs by their dead friend. As usual, I wont give away all the details. Some things you should know before you decide to watch this movie: 

1. The entire movie (except for the last 3 seconds) will consist of you watching people using the computer. Chatting on imessage, facebook and video chat. 

2. As a computer user, there are some things that may annoy you. For example, most people use keyboard shortcuts: copy, paste, and hit enter in a chat with the keyboard. Not in this movie. Heavy mouse usage. 

3. How often do you video chat with 4-5 people? Is that even a thing? I'm lucky if I facetime with my sister! If something creepy was happening, wouldn't you log off? Contact a live human instead of your friends on the computer? (Not saying friends on the computer are not live humans-I just mean maybe, like humans in your home? neighbors?)

Overall, I will give this movie 3.5 stars. I did enjoy it. I would not rewatch it. I'm really glad I watched it on cable instead of at the theater. The verdict: if you are in the mood for a good cheesy high-school scary movie then go for this.
