While Friend Request was Germany's answer to the popularity of Unfriended, I sort of preferred this to the successful 2014 film??
Friend Request is playing into both the modern witch wave and the anxiety of social media users, sure, it's far from an instant classic, but I like to think of it as a relic of 2016, if we bury it for long enough, in 2030 someone will unearth this time capsule of a film and laugh at us for being so fucking ridiculous.

Maybe it all boils down to the fact that I had incredibly low expectations going…
