A drug-addicted psychiatrist inherits the case of twin sisters who speak to nobody and do everything in complete synchronization. Will she be able crack their mysterious case or will she die trying? Set in the deteriorating vistas of rust-belt Pittsburgh, Strange Girls is a dark tale of horror, manipulation, violence, and obsession. Written by
Definitely the creepiest movie to play at 2008's STIFF festival---and definitely more psychologically disturbing than gory (although there's certainly some splashes of THAT too). The two twins really start to get under your skin on their first appearance, and they come home with you and stay in your head long after the final reel. Everything is spot-on, from the atmosphere of a struggling-looking Pittsburgh to the sad-eyed, somehow knowingly hopeless feeling you can read in the faces of even the minor characters. And surprisingly, what makes this such a strange little gem is that while it never loses its fundamental darkness throughout, glimmers of humor are always present---just in case you start to feel a little too uneasy in your theater seat
