If you give a teen an inch, he’ll make a meme — that’s why the trailer for social-media-horror film Unfriended, out Friday, was the perfect platform for an internet-style riff.

Here’s the scene: Our crew of young adults has just realized they aren’t the only ones in their Google Hangout … so who’s typing the threats? “Hands up,” someone writes, and everyone flashes their palms toward the webcam, like a modern-day surrender. Then: A ghost appears!  Scream, scream, scream. It’s scary! A genuine jump-out-of-your-computer-chair moment. Also the perfect opportunity to remix. See what we mean, below:
