Warner Brothers, very generously, gave those subscribed to the Frightfest Newsletter the chance to preview the upcoming horror film, Friend Request, for free, an opportunity I eagerly snapped up. Friend Request is another film to add ro the canon of Social Media horror films that are slowly gaining an understanding of how the internet is actually used. The most famous example is Unfriended, a horror film set entirely on Skype, which was a hit and used its premise extremely well.

After saving the World from General Zod (Michael Shannon) Superman (Henry Cavill) is regarded as a hero. However, a sizeable minority see him as a threat and Batman (Ben Affleck) is one of them after seeing one of workers lose his legs in the destruction of Metropolis caused by Superman's fight with General Zod. Batman dons his cape and attempts to right Superman's wrongs, igniting a fierce rivalry in the process. Meanwhile, Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) is clearly up to something fishy.

S. Craig Zahler's horror western has been described as John Ford's The Searchers meets Alexadra aja/Wes Craven's The Hills have Eyes. This is an accurate decision as the film combines the racial politics of The Searches with the extreme violence and clashes between the civilised and uncivilised both of whom have the capacity of the violence in The Hills have Eyes.
