Blumhouse Productions used the SXSW festival to unveil “Unfriended: Dark Web,” a sequel to the 2014 theatrical horror/thriller feature which is set entirely on computer screens.
The sequel, directed by “The Grudge” remake scribe Stephen Susco, follows a twentysomething who finds a cache of hidden files on his new laptop and is thrust into the deep waters of the dark web. Once again the story unravels in real-time, entirely on a computer screen.
Blum, Timur Bekmambetov and Majd Nassif return as producers on the new film which hasn’t set a release date as yet. The first film grossed $64 million on a $1 million budget.
