You may remember that we told you last October about Unfriended: Game Night, a sequel to 2014’s computer screen slasher that had somehow managed to shoot in secret. We were able to confirm that an early screening had taken place around that time, and we even shared plot details with you; at the time, that was really all we knew.
So what happened to Unfriended: Game Night? Well, the Midnighters lineup for this year’s SXSW was just announced today, and on the list was one particular project that piqued our interest. The film is advertised as Untitled Blumhouse-Bazelevs Film, written and directed by Stephen Susco. The plot, well, it lines up with the plot for Game Night.
Furthermore, the first image from the untitled film is labeled “unfriended-game-night”!
In the film…
“A 20-something finds a cache of hidden files on his new laptop and is thrust into the deep waters of the dark web. From the makers of Unfriended, this thriller unravels in real-time, entirely on a computer screen. A warning for the digital age.”
Colin Woodell, Betty Gabriel, Rebecca Rittenhouse, Andrew Lees, Conor del Rio, Stephanie Nogueras and Savira Windyani star in the… apparent sequel to Unfriended.
