Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures has revealed a new trailer and poster for the horror film Friend Request. Starring Alycia Debnam-Carey (AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead), William Mosely (E!’s The Royals) and Connor Paolo (ABC’s Revenge, The CW’s Gossip Girl), the new horror wreaks havoc in theaters on September 22nd.
Friend Request centers on popular college student Laura (Alycia Debnam-Carey), who has tons of friends, both on Facebook and IRL. She graciously accepts social outcast Marina’s (Liesl Ahlers) online friend request, until Marina crosses the line and Laura unfriends her. To everyone’s shock, Marina takes her own life in a ritual meant to torment Laura, which appears in a video posted on Laura’s profile. Even though it wasn’t Laura who posted the video, or other creepy content that begins appearing on her page, her Facebook friend count begins to dwindle as a result. When her real-life friends start dying mysterious, cruel deaths, Laura must figure out how to break the deadly curse before it’s too late.
