MOVIE REVIEW #12: FRIEND REQUEST

Today’s Friday so it’s time for another review post! I’ll do a movie review this week about a movie titled ‘Friend Request‘. Here goes!

**Spoiler-free**

CASTS

Alycia Jasmin Debnam-Carey, William Moseley, Connor Paolo, Brit Morgan, Brooke Markham, Sean Marquette, Liesl Ahlers

STORY

A college student’s closest friends and family members started to get killed one by one after she unfriends a mysterious creepy girl online. She tried to stop the killings with the help of one of her friends.

HIGH POINTS

The acting was on point. I especially liked Alycia, Connor, and Liesl’s
The story isn’t something new and somewhat ridiculous but the cinematography made it watchable
I was able to relate to Laura’s predicament
It teaches us to be more cautious in adding people we don’t know on our social media accounts

LOW POINTS

Laura wore the same dress several times (though I liked the outfit)
I didn’t like the ending!
Marina’s character was given only a few lines and screen time to establish her character. I think the goal is to know Marina as Laura tries to dig deeper into her(Marina’s) childhood
Cops were practically useless
FBI Cyber Crime unit should’ve been involved but weren’t

VERDICT

Watchable and I liked it, low points considered. It’s difficult to find positive notes about the film but it still has that charisma in it that makes you want to watch it until the end.

Thanks for dropping by and see you on the next review!
