A popular college student graciously accepts a social outcast's online friend request, but soon finds herself fighting a demonic presence that wants to make her lonely by killing her closest friends.
Originally titled "Unknown Error," the film was later renamed internationally to avoid confusion with Unfriended (2014). In Germany, Friend Request is titled "Unfriend" since Unfriended (2014) was released as "Unknown User" in that country.
