In this episode of Input 2, we discuss one of the newest horror movies to be released this fall, Friend Request, and try to decipher exactly what the creative minds behind the films were trying to say. We talk about the use of social media and suicide in both this movie and 2015’s Unfriended, and what the fear of social media entails. Will social media continued to be used in horror movies? What do this films do to add to the conversation about suicide and mental illness. All this and more on Input 2!
