Podcast: Marvel at Horror Film Unfriended, a Surprisingly Good Movie About the Internet


On this week’s Voice Film Club podcast, we marvel at teen horror film Unfriended, and while it is “85 minutes of watching someone else use a computer,” the filmmaker’s adept at turning a screen into a natural storytelling platform: “Director Levan Gabriadze summons up exquisite unease just by the way a cursor darts about a desktop.”

But before that, we call up our own Stephanie Zacharek to ask about her Pulitzer Prize finalist recognition. Then we examine a new faith movie with a terrible message named Little Boy, before moving to Forbidden Games, an old faith movie with a powerful message. Finally, we discuss how HBO is moving High Maintenance from the Web to the TV (be sure to read our interview with High Maintenance creators Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair, too).
