FLORIDA PREMIERE. A fresh, funny, and bloody send-up of slasher satires that’s cut from the same vein as Scream and Clueless. In the horror-comedy Tragedy Girls, Brianna Hildebrand (Deadpool) and Alexandra Shipp (X-Men: Apocalypse) play two social media-obsessed best friends named who will stop at nothing to build their online following. The self-titled “Tragedy Girls” kidnap 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. 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. Starring Craig Robinson (Pineapple Express), Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games), and Kevin Durand (The Strain).
