Friend Request (2016)


Laura (Alycia Debnam-Carey) is the pretty, popular girl who befriends a lonely girl, Marina (Liesl Ahlers) with a disorder whereupon she plucks hair from her head.  Marina is a socially isolated artist for whom Laura has become a Facebook friend.

Marina tries to integrate into Laura's life by inviting herself to Laura's birthday party.  Long story short, Laura realizes that she shouldn't have to acquiesce to this friendly acquaintance and attends the party without her.  When Marina finds out, she comes undone, commits suicide and what happens after that is purely demonic virtual dumbness. 

The way of demonic possession simply does not work in this manner.  There is a lot of whispering which, is barely audible and just dumb teenage crap.  Blech.
