Tyler McIntyre’s horror comedy Tragedy Girls has been a hit on the festival circuit, with Alexandra Shipp (X-Men: Apocalypse) and Brianna Hildebrand (Deadpool) starring as the titular best friends who find a bloody new way to drive traffic to their social media presence…
There’s a lot shown here, so we might suggest skipping the trailer and just making damn sure you see it. You can read our review from Fantasia here, but if you need more convincing, here you go:
“Best friends Sadie and McKayla are on a mission to boost their social media fandom as amateur crime reporters hot on the trail of a deranged local serial killer. After they manage to capture the killer and secretly hold him hostage, they realize the best way to get scoops on future victims would be to, you know, murder people themselves. As the @TragedyGirls become an overnight sensation and panic grips their small town, can their friendship survive the strain of national stardom? Will they get caught? Will their accounts get verified?”
Tragedy Girls also stars Craig Robinson, Josh Hutcherson, Loren Lester, Rosalind Chao, Nicky Whelan and Kevin Durand.
Tragedy Girls is released on 20 October in the US. No UK release date has been announced. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
