Producer Jason Blum (Blumhouse titles include everything from the Paranormal Activity franchise and The Purge series to Whiplash) has a sixth sense, it seems, when it comes to scaring the pants off moviegoers, and he’s willing to put his gut instincts to the test with the latest creeper from writer Nelson Greaves (a writer on Sleepy Hollow) and Russian director Levan Gabriadze (Lucky Trouble and segments of Yolki 2 and Yolki 3) about an online chat group that is being stalked by a supernatural force using the Internet account of a recently deceased member of the group. I don’t know about you, but somehow this premise seems a bit dated. (Opens wide Friday, April 17) (R) Not screened in time for review
