Violent and Bloody Scenes

The portrayal of infliction of pain and injuries are featured in the movie with some details of blood and gore but are not prolonged or frequent.

The film contains scenes of violence that are shown with some details of blood and injury.

These include a scene where a girl is seen slitting her own throat; a scene where a girl shoots at her own head, and a scene where a man gets stabbed from the back of his neck, leaving a gaping wound with blood gushing out.

These scenes would be more appropriate for an older teen audience.

Scary and Disturbing Scenes

'Friend Request' is a horror film revolving around the dismal fate that befalls popular college student Laura after she accepts a Facebook friend request from Marina, a social outcast.

Frightening scenes which are more prolonged are featured in the movie.

The horror in the film revolves mainly around the haunting by Marina's ghost.

Some of the stronger scenes include one where Marina's distorted face appears suddenly next to the characters; one where two spectres with rotten faces appearing at the corner of screen; a video of Marina hanging herself and setting herself on fire; a scene depicting a man trapped in a dark lift before being ambushed by a spectre; etc.

In these scenes, there is a steady build-up of suspense leading to the final scare.

Review

The internet can be a very dark place. It's that way because people feel more comfortable saying how they truly feel on matters when they're hidden behind a computer screen, rather than being face to face with someone. Using this darkness as a film subject has been touched on, but not really mastered yet by Hollywood. 2014's 'Unfriended' is the best example I've seen of this subject so far. It has a lot of similarities to 'Friend Request', but remains a superior film. The main thing that it had going for it was that it was shown in real time, which covered up the biggest problem 'Friend Request' faced - the implausibility of no one being able to help.

'Friend Request' starts out as a very fine film. The '2 Weeks Earlier' segment is brilliantly crafted and sets up what should have been a great movie. Then, unfortunately, things start to fall apart. Characters start saying and doing things that make no sense, and all logic in regards to the social network problems go out the window in order for the story to stay afloat. There are some very good jump scares admittedly, however a number of the death scenes are a big let down in terms of suspense. It still remains an above average horror movie, but the disappointing thing here is the waste of potential.
