It doesn't reinvent anything but for me it was a significant improvement over the first one. Just as a comment, they should stop here. This does not need to be a franchise.

The format that shouldn’t work still kind of does with this anthology-esque sequel. Being locked to a computer screen creates a sense of unknown and claustrophobia even if it isn’t visually exciting. But the rest...

The characters are annoying and the dialogue cringe inducing at times. Story tries to be a bit too twisted and clever for its own good. It’s ok.

If you can forgive a handful of implausibilities then it's decent, almost a waste of time but not quite.

But if you're all about "why would he do that?", "only an idiot would do that", and "that makes no sense" then you're going to feel this is a waste of your valuable time. The core of the story is interesting but their execution of it had its problems. Normally, I'd have dropped it but I had nothing else going on for a lazy Sunday a'noon. Expand

It's obvious now that the hallmark of the Unfriended movies is not so much a supernatural bent (like the 1st one,) but simply that the whole story is told from the POV of a computer screen. Which is good, because this movie gets to go off on its own tangent instead of rehashing the first movie's ghostly plot.

The first act is always a bit of a bore, trying to establish the characters and set the scene with limited narrative resources... but once again, when the story picks up steam, the watchability goes way up. This one is all real-world shadow cult type stuff, and it does manage to tell a serviceable story. Most of it boils down to existing "they know who/where we are" fare, but there is some stuff in there that stands out. AJ's death was a nice, spicy meatball. The big finish was a bit of a cop-out, but it does wrap up the movie.

I didn't absolutely love it, but I do think it has its place. It wasn't bad for what it is, and as long as the inevitable next Unfriended movie is as anthological as the first two, I'm okay with these. It's just that this new screen-capture horror subgenre isn't for everybody, hence the bad reviews.

While it's not a bad movie, it's not a very good one either. The acting is okay, the story is fine, the deaths are weak and the ending is average at best. It's just a very average movie. At least it was pretty entertaining.

I found it better than the previous one but nevertheless towards the end it loses strength.
