First Trailer for Universal’s On-Line-Set Horror Film UNFRIENDED

Cybernatural Horror Movie

Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for on-line-set horror feature Unfriended, which unfolds over Skype and instant messaging. Well, that is actually terrifying.

Formerly titled Cybernatural, this thriller was developed by filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov and directed by Levan Gabriadze from a script by Nelson Greaves.

The movie which the studio promises will “usher in a new era of Universal horror” stars Shelley Hennig, Moses Jacob Storm, Renee Olstead, Will Peltz, Jacob Wysocki, Courtney Halverson, and Heather Sossaman.

Unfriended hits theaters on April 17th, 2015. Watch the trailer below and have a look at the first poster and stills from the film.

It’s reportedly not a found footage flick, but utilizes self-imposed limits to incredible effect. Pretty sure it looks like a great movie to see with friends.

Ushering in a new era of horror, Universal Pictures’ UNFRIENDED unfolds over a teenager’s computer screen as she and her friends are stalked by an unseen figure who seeks vengeance for a shaming video that led a vicious bully to kill herself a year earlier.
