Unfriended is a horror movie told completely through the screen of a single computer. To be more clear, it shows you the “live” monitor of the main character the whole time.

He asked his fans, through a viral voting campaign, who would actually like to see this made. It turns out many people voted #WalrusYes.

(80 mins later)

Ah, fuck.
