In "Unfriended: Dark Web," when a 20-something named Matias (Woodell) finds a cache of hidden files on his laptop, he and his friends are unwittingly thrust into the depths of the Dark Web. They soon discover someone has been watching their every move and will go to unimaginable lengths to protect the Dark Web. (Gary Reber)

Special features include an alternate ending "Who Deserves To Live" (HD 19:25), upfront previews, and a Movies Anywhere digital code.

The 1.78:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, upconverted to 2160p with greater resolution and luminance, was photographed digitally and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The imagery consists of video screens with computer screens mixed with Face Time video. All appear realistic. As such, the overall quality is mediocre. Colors are bright and saturated. Fleshtones are natural insofar as they appear on a video screen. Resolution is acceptable. Overall, realism is paramount. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is dialogue focused with sound effects ranging from keyboard strokes, clicks, and computer sounds to sound effects involving violent sounds enhanced with deep bass transients. Dialogue sounds natural with good spatial integration. The sound effects are edgy and frightening. Fidelity is excellent. Deep bass is often intense. This is an unusual soundtrack that is terrifying throughout. (Gary Reber)
