STORY : A popular college student unfriends an unknown girl on a social media website which unleashes a demonic entity that endangers all her friends and family.

REVIEW : Tech-horror may just be a new genre to emerge, given the all-pervasive relation we share with technology. Still, do ghosts’ go digital? That’s the question you end up asking yourself, just like the protagonist Laura (Alycia Debnam-Carey), who finds it out the hard way when she accepts a random friend request from an unpopular girl Marina (Liesl Ahlers), who goes by the moniker Ma Rina with zero friends on a ‘popular social networking website’. A petty altercation with Marina ends up with her killing herself and posting the suicide video on Laura’s page. Then on, Ma Rina vows to kill all those close to Laura, digitally.

Friend Request follows in the footsteps of the 2002 hit The Ring. While the latter had ghosts attacking through VHS tape, the ghosts in the former attack through cell phones, laptops and even printers. Other agents of the ghost are blue-eyed zombies and killer bees, but they appear ever so often, given the body count, that the VFX shocks end up being ineffective.

Logic takes a hike, with a stabbed Laura running around for 20 minutes solving mysteries and a superior Matrix-level hacker being unable to get beyond the settings on the social media site, yet it’s entertaining. You end up following illogical plot points, and want to see just how the story ends. The pay-off is goofy, sure. But it’s still a good film to catch up on a late night with friends over.
