In director Tyler MacIntyre’s horror-comedy Tragedy Girls, Brianna Hildebrand (Deadpool) and Alexandra Shipp (X-Men: Apocalypse) play two social media-obsessed best friends named Sadie and McKayla 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 — but, then, Lowell escapes. 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.
Tragedy Girls costars Craig Robinson and Jack Quaid, among others. The film receives its world premiere on March 12 as part of the Midnighters section at the SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas.
