According to Screen Rant, “Unfriended” is the supernatural, horrifying version result of excessive cyberbullying. The story follows a year later after Laura Barn’s (Heather Sossaman) suicide that was caused by a scandal video that ruined her reputation for life. She ended up shooting herself, and now, it appears as though she is back for retribution. The act of revenge occurs during a video call session of her high school schoolmates when a seventh caller with the username billie227 joins in. The torment then begins as Laura’s accounts were brought back to life as this unknown user attempts to unravel who among them uploaded Laura’s wretched scandal into the web for everyone to see.

It is based on the writing by Nelson Greaves and helmed by Levan Gabriadze. It is slated for theater premiere on April 17, 2015.
