A new clip has arrived for digital age kill-spree horror-comedy Tragedy Girls ahead of its SXSW premiere, along with a handful of stills.
Tragedy Girls was directed by Tyler MacIntyre, who also co-wrote with Chris Lee Hill. X-Men: Apocalypse’s Alexandra Shipp and Deadpool’s Brianna Hildebrand star as two young friends looking to become internet stars by embarking on a murderous rampage. Co-starring are The Hunger Games’ Josh Hutcherson, comedy regular Craig Robinson (This is the End, Pineapple Express), Kevin Durand (The Strain, Resident Evil: Retribution) and Sons of Anarchy’s Timothy V. Murphy.
Sadie and McKayla are two social-media obsessed best friends who will stop at nothing to build their online following. The self-titled “Tragedy Girls” kidnap Lowell, an unambitious local serial killer, and force him to mentor them into modern horror legends by committing murders to blow up on the internet.
As the bodies fall, the girls become national news; and panic in their small town hits a fever pitch — just then, Lowell escapes! Now, with the local sheriff closing in and their relationship on the rocks, the girls must rethink their plan before they find themselves the latest victims of their own killing spree.
This could well be one to keep an eye on. We’ll bring you more when we can.
