Marina is a social outcast at a made-up California university. She sits in the back of her psych class and pulls her hair out, and wears a hoodie and is gothed up – so you know she’s messed up.

She’s at the heart of Friend Request, this being just an expression as this is a movie with no heart, or soul, or passion for that matter. What we describe as “aggressively mediocre.”

Marina soon starts stalking a popular girl on social media, through a Facebook-like platform (it’s like Facebook and not actual Facebook, as Mark Zuckerberg did not take too kindly to this movie using his copyright).

Tied into all this is some witchcraft backstory, some unspectacular deaths, some cyber-bullying. It all amounts to a big, fat zero.
