Tyler MacIntyre’s Tragedy Girls raucously blends Detention with Behind The Mask: The Rise Of Leslie Vernon. Heavy on quick-witted teen jargon (Jennifer’s Body on speed), light on serial killer training.

Internet interactions allow psychopaths to hide in plain sight, while a lust for attention makes hobby murders sound like a serviceable road to popularity. “Like, retweet and follow!” our characters beg, because that’s the world we live in now. A millennial apocalypse set in the digital realm.
Brianna Hildebrand and Alexandra Shipp are the “Tragedy Girls,” two high school seniors who run an online account that’s obsessed with true-crime. Specifically, the idea of serial killers. Brand popularity increases when their sleepy town of Rosedale falls victim to a string of deaths, but this isn’t »

When Peter Quinn Babysits

We have Baywatch coming out in a few months and today we have our first good look at director Dean Israelite’s Power Rangers reboot. A big screen re-imagining has been on the cards for a while. In early 2015 Detention director Joseph Kahn surprised us with a realistic, yet ultraviolent take on Saban’s treasured property.
