#TragedyGirls might be trending.
Sadie (Brianna Hildebrand) and McKayla (Alexandra Shipp) are the Tragedy Girls, the online duo that posts tweets and videos on all news related to serial killers. When a series of deaths start to occur in town, the Sheriff’s office is quick to rule them out as accidental. Sadie and McKayla know this is false because they have the actual serial killer Lowell (Kevin Durand) locked up in a basement! But wait, there’s more. With him out of the way, the girls can go on the murder spree they’ve always dreamed about with a scapegoat to take all the blame.
Director Tyler MacIntyre has co-written this crazy murder-adventure of two popular girls trying to make it big in the online trending world. They will kill off rivals and past lovers just to get their number of followers up. The result is a horror comedy of friendship and gore that will melt your heart if it doesn’t cut your head first.
First of all, this is one of those satires that doesn’t exist in mainstream anymore. Paying tribute to dark comedies like HEATHERS and horror classics like CARRIE, it tries to do its own thing as it illustrates how sociopathic social media can be. Reason and logic has ceased to exist, chaos reigns, tributes and vigils turn into crowd mobs and the number of followers for Sadie and McKayla keep going on.
Recommended for gore and horror-comedy/satire lovers. The almost joyful way in which Sadie and McKayla’s friendship exists while they hack and slash victims will be put to the test as their fame goes up and love is in the air. The slasher genre needed a movie like this one to rejuvenate itself. Don’t forget to watch, share, comment and subscribe.
That will do for now.
