In Friend Request, Alycia Debnam-Carey plays Laura, a popular college student who ends up regretting letting a colleague named Marina (Liesel Ahlers) become a Facebook friend. Marina is a social outcast who stalks Laura both in real life and online. After Laura unfriends Marina, the woman commits suicide, and her death leads to repercussions for Laura and her fellow Facebook friends.
“You have no control over technology in many ways,” said Degnam-Carey. “You don’t know the implications it has in years to come. So I thought that was a really smart idea to involve so many of those qualities with these fantasy elements of the script which I also thought was fantastic.”
