The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ Trailer for UNFRIENDED

Honey Buzz ~ Trailer for UNFRIENDED

Slut shaming, online bullying, peer pressure... I remember the good old days of the only memories of me being blackout drunk and puking in a stranger's car at 18 are just my own memories and don't appear online. But in this new generation of people living their entire lives through Facebook, and having been accosted in person by someone who took my Facebook unfriending as a "personal, public attack" I suppose I can see how people with nothing else going on would be completely freaked out by this film.

Made specifically for the Facebook generation, aka those still in highschool mentally if not physically, MTV's Unfriended feels extremely familiar.

From its IMDb page, it also looks like Unfriended has undergone a bit of a facelift... including a name change. Except not everything on the IMDb page matches the changeover.

The story: While video chatting one night, six high school friends receive a Skype message from a classmate who killed herself exactly one year ago. A first they think it's a prank, but when the girl starts revealing the friends' darkest secrets, they realize they are dealing with something out of this world, something that wants them dead. Told entirely from a young girl's computer desktop, CYBERNATURAL redefines 'found footage' for a new generation of teens. 

What is completely glossed over in this description is how the girl who committed suicide on school grounds (on video of course) was cyber shamed and bullied because of a drunken video posted after a house party. Small detail. Thankfully, the trailer tells us the ENTIRE story, and even the order of the kills and how they happen, so if you've watched the trailer... you've seen the film. 

Thumbs up, MTV.  

Unfriended will be officially released on April 17th, but again... you honestly don't need to watch the movie to have seen the movie. Watch the trailer, log on to Facebook and shake your head at the realization that idiots like this are going to run the world someday. 
Hopefully long after we're dead.
