BKNJ Review: Friend Request

April 23, 2018

With a relatively benign sounding title, and basic plot description, “Friend Request” punches way above expectation.  So much so, that when it comes to visually-stimulating pop-horror films, Friend Request might just edge out Death Note.  Solid score.  More than a handful of pant-shitting jump takes, perfectly doled out. 

 

Minor Spoilers:  

 

MVPs

 

Alycia Debnam-Carey as the lead "Laura".  Super pretty.  Great transformation.  That’s what you get for being nice. 

 

Connor Paolo as "Kobe".  Great intense stare.  He should teach a class.  Another great transformation. 

 

The entire cast, from the mother, to the cops, who were just not dumb enough, without being in the way.  Keeps this long but interesting story moving. 

 

Artwork/SPFX - Someone had to do all that.  Crazy. 

 

Locations were awesome.  Attention to detail is great all over. 

 

Liesl Ahlers - Absolutely terrifying.  I just checked, yeah she’s hot in real life.  Called it.  

 

Overall - Must Watch - You will be surprisingly good at staying off your phone.
