UNFRIENDED is a US horror film about a group of friends who are terrorised by a girl they once bullied via various forms of social media.

Language

There is a single written use of very strong language ('c**t') and frequent use of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker') throughout.

Violence

There are occasional brief scenes of strong violence, including a suicide by shooting, a stabbing, a scene in which a woman has a burning object protruding from her mouth, and a sequence in which a man's hand is mutilated in a food blender.

Threat

Levels of threat increase throughout as the protagonists are tormented psychologically and ultimately physically.

Sex

There are occasional strong sex references, as well as a short sequence in which a couple have sex. The latter includes implied cunnilingus and sight of a woman straddling a man.

Suicide

The narrative occurs in the aftermath of a young woman's suicide, following her victimisation by 'cyber bullies' who spread a video depicting her unconscious at a party where she urinated and defecated in her clothes. The trauma caused by her bullying led to her apparent suicide, and forms the method with which the protagonists are then tormented, resulting in instances of seemingly forced suicide.

There are infrequent drugs references, including to 'weed' and 'roofies', as well as photographs of a woman using a bong at a party.
