Unfriended: Dark Web trailer

There was a movie that came out a few years ago, 2015 if I remember correctly, called "Unfriended." I reviewed it here for the site. If you remember correctly, I wasn't much of a fan of it. I figured that I'd forget and never have to think of it again. But astonishingly, there is a sequel coming out later this year.

Now, the first film dealt with a ghost getting revenge on a bunch of kids who were on a Facetime/Skype type call one night. This sequel looks like it is leaving the supernatural aspect behind, doing something different. In this trailer, it looks like a group on a Facetime/Skype style call find out one of their friends stole a laptop, and that the laptop contains sensitive material on it revolving the Dark Web, a place full of illegal activity. A group within the Dark Web find out and track the stolen laptop. They begin to mess with the group, and take them out one by one. Or at least that's what it looks from the trailer.

I wasn't much of a fan of the first film. I can't build lots of sympathy for person who stole a laptop. That's always the biggest thing when it comes to horror movies. If you are making a horror movie about young people getting killed, you better make sure we care about who is getting killed. Otherwise you are going to have a film full of random death. This looks to be another crapfest, but I hope I'm wrong.
