Universal Pictures released their new horror/thriller flick, “Unfriended,” into theaters this weekend, and all the reviews are in from the top critics. It turns out that it didn’t do half bad, getting mixed reviews with an overall 60 score out of a possible 100 across 28 reviews at Metacritic.com.

The movie stars: Courtney Halverson, Jacob Wysocki, Will Peltz, Shelley Hennig, Renee Olstead, Moses Jacob Storm, and Heather Sossaman. We’ve added some blurbs from a few of the critics,below.

Alonso Duralde from TheWrap, gave it a decent 76 score, stating: ” Unfriended commits to its idea and continually finds new ways to creatively exploit it, building the tension as each character reveals his or her own dark deeds, thus justifying the brutal vendettas visited upon them.”

Claudia Puig at USA Today, gave it a 75 score, saying: “Blowing this small-screen cyber horror tale out to the big screen makes for fresh and fearsome fun.”

Clark Collis over at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 75 grade. He stated: “Though not particularly ground-breaking — last year’s Elijah Wood-starring Open Windows pulled the same trick, and much more ambitiously — we’re still going to “like” the result.”

Peter Travers from Rolling Stone, gave it a 75 score, saying: “What kind of a movie takes place entirely on one screwed-up teen’s computer screen? That would be Unfriended, a creep-you-out experiment in terror that damn near pulls off every trick up its cyber sleeve.”

Joe Morgenstern at the Wall Street Journal, gave it a 70 grade, saying: “No, it’s therefore a movie to be seen, if you can endure it — as a shrewd commercial venture, as an online opus that undoes your self-composure and, last and foremost, as a window on a mode of thinking that equates to a state of being.”

Lou Lumenick at the New York Post, gave it a 63. He said: ” More funny than scary.” Robert Abele from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 60 score. He said: “As a harangue about cyberbullying, it’s purely exploitative, but when Unfriended zeros in on the whiplash mixture of freedom and torment we get from multitasking our online lives? It’s srsly fun, imo.”
