Terror Uploads Online in the First Trailer for 'Unfriended' Horror
When you hear that the horror flick called Unfriended unfolds over Skype and instant messaging, you'll probably roll your eyes. But if you take a couple minutes to watch the trailer for the film created and produced by Timur Bekmambetov, you just might change your mind. In theory, this movie just sounds silly, but as you'll see in the trailer, this actually looks pretty damn scary and suspenseful. I was immediately skeptical when the trailer began, but it sucked me in, and this looks at least like a better way to approach the found footage horror craze (Open Windows tried something similar). Anyway, give it a chance. Watch it!
