As a follow up to Unfriended (2014), the recently released movie trailer of the Unfriended: Dark Web looks dark and disturbing. Directed by Stephen Susco and produced by Jason Blum, the film is set for July 20 release.
Considering the whole concept of Internet and personal privacy as the subject of discussion lately, the movie looks interesting even though many similar horror films typically set on very specific ideas and limited perspective do not explore the subject beyond a point.
After watching the trailer, we can say that it reveals too much and this is not a good sign. Moreover, in these kinds of movies, it becomes very essential for the makers to keep the suspense intact. Hopefully, Unfriended: Dark Web will have enough thrill and suspense to keep us engaged till the end.
Unfriended: Dark Web follows a group of friends who stumble upon a wrong laptop with disturbing content in it. As they all join for a video conference where they happen to watch some of the content from that laptop, they realize that they are being watched and they will have to pay the price for getting connected to a network of horror.
Dark Web expectantly will capitalize on the fact that Internet, despite being the most effective mode of communication, is also full of illegal and inappropriate materials.
As we all are now using Internet in many ways, almost always, and there is no full proof technology to keep our privacy safe from any spurious purposes, a film story with some possibilities might be interesting.
What if our laptop webcam is on all the time even when not in use? What if someone is watching our activities on Internet without our knowledge? What if some private/government agency is constantly watching or monitoring us for any reason? There can be many such questions muddle our mind.
There are certainly so many things we may consider, but for now we have no other option but to use Internet. Unfriended: Dark Web might be just a movie with no realty attached, but it might drive our imagination on those warnings we hear every now and then in this digital age.
