Freestyle Releasing is going to send you a Friend Request

For an amount said to be in the high eight figures, Byron Allen's Entertainment Studios acquired independent distributor Freestyle Releasing last year, and the first film set to be released in the United States by the newly merged Entertainment/Freestyle company is director Simon Verhoeven's "fast paced psychological horror/thriller" FRIEND REQUEST.

Written by Verhoeven, Matthew Ballen, and Philip Koch, FRIEND REQUEST stars Fear the Walking Dead's Alycia Debnam-Carey (pictured above) as 

Laura, a college student who faces unexpected and grave consequences when she unfriends a female loner from her high school on social media. Soon after, she and her friends are stalked by a demonic force.

The cast also includes Brit Morgan, Connor Paolo, and William Moseley (no, not horror icon Bill Moseley.)

Freestyle hasn't announced a specific release date for FRIEND REQUEST, saying only that the movie will be out in the fourth quarter of 2016.

If you're someone who feels uneasy about unfriending people on social media, it sounds like FRIEND REQUEST will be a horror film that you might find particularly unnerving.
