Trivia

Originally titled "Unknown Error", the film was later renamed internationally, to avoid confusion with Cybernatural (2014), otherwise known as "Unfriended". In Germany, the film is titled "Unfriend" since Cybernatural (2014) was released as "Unknown User" in that country. See more »

Camera work and direction not bad, but as a whole pretty poor
12 September 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Predictable jump scares (so much so that you can count them down in your head and be spot on every time); clichéd plot; awful tech references; nothing original.

You get the picture (no pun intended!)

Having said that, the camera work is fine, the acting is better than most of the genre and the direction isn't terrible either.

If you love this sort of movie, this will be more of the same and there's a chance you'll enjoy it.

If this sort of movie leaves a little cold then you might want to avoid it as you'll pick holes in it almost instantly.
