I recently watched Friend Request, which deals with witch craft and the internet and I mentioned how the digital horror scene doesn't really work for me.
The horror of the film has its own explanation and works on a literal level, but must of what happens in the film seems to evoke the fears that accompany the internet: young people getting lost in their screens, isolation, obsession.
Technically the film is good: it's not visually flashy but its static or slowly moving camera fits the film's slow pace well, CGI is clearly dated but it still kinda works and soundtrack is really nice.
