[Review] Tragedy Girls

Two small-town best friends McKayla (Alexandra Shipp) and Sadie (Brianna Hildebrand) are obsessed with becoming internet famous. Tracking the progress of a local serial killer named Lowell (Kevin Durand) on the loose. The film opens up with the apprehension  of Lowell, locking him away until he agrees to help them. Taking matters to the “next phase” the girls start murdering locals, leaving Lowell to take the blame. Things start o go awry  take a turn  Jordan (Jack Quaid) their puppy dog friend. Starts to drive a wedge in their relationship when his feelings for Sadie shift priorities. Culminating with senior prom, where though death the girls rekindle there friendship.

Tyler MacIntyre has done a great job in ushering perhaps the newest  inter-ration of Heathers mixed with a dash of Clueless with an air of Mean Girls.  The movie itself is fun, I think it captures teen culture Today very well. MacIntyre also gives nods to his childhood, Dawn of the Dead, Cannibal Holocaust and Carrie.  I’m pretty the line in the beginning about the cat missing is from something as well that I just can’t place! This film is just a good example easy movies can be. No plot holes, everything served a purpose and I felt like I got a pretty good story overall.


I know some won’t feel this way. But when you look at the film as a whole. They the movie can bounce from gore and back to high school. Plays complimentary to Shipp and Hildebrand performances. It really showcase how the youth of today focuses or lack there of at any given minute. Now whether that was intentional or not? I may never know but I hope it was.  I wouldn’t hate it if, there was a follow up to film perhaps show casing the college year murders!
