It was in October that we first heard about Unfriended: Game Night, a sequel to 2014’s Unfriended that Blumhouse had managed to shoot in secret. The film surfaced again last month, when the SXSW lineup included a film advertised as Untitled Blumhouse-Bazelevs Film, written and directed by Stephen Susco; we ascertained that this was likely the Unfriended sequel we had mentioned months prior, and indeed it was.
At SXSW last night, Blumhouse dropped the newly-titled Unfriended: Dark Web on attendees, the film that had previously been known as Unfriended: Game Night.
Trace is currently at SXSW, covering the event for us, and he raved about Dark Web last night. Expect his full review to pop up here on Bloody Disgusting shortly!
#UnfriendedDarkWeb is a total fucking blast. A different take on the same narrative gimmick that #Unfriended had (though it has more in common with @zachary_donohue’s #TheDen than that film) but it fixes a lot of complaints people had about the first one. Don’t miss it!

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.
