I guess some of you really liked (or at least paid to go see) the Blumhouse produced Unfriended in 2014. We thought this ‘ghost in the machine’ laptop-vision horror was pretty lame. Now we’ve got a sequel…except, it’s really more of a reboot. This time around, we still got the laptop-o-vision as the entirety of the screen, but we join a group of friends skyping a game night and it turns out one of them has a stolen laptop. Stolen from the type of people you don’t want to make upset. One by one they go and ok, so ultimately it’s the same type of thing as the first only no supernatural stuff (unless you count Mr. Robot level hacking abilities). But how does it compare? Listen to Chris, Miguel, Aaron, and Elliott.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
