Trivia

The Bookish Student was only meant to appear in one scene, but the director felt that Katie Stottlemire had such great comedic timing that he kept bringing her back to take part in more scenes. See more »

Goofs

54 minutes in when Lowell frees himself from the chair, we can see that his hands are only zip tied to one another behind his back, he's not tied to the chair. He could have gotten off that chair at any point. See more »

Quotes

Sadie Cunningham: Death is an inevitable part of life.
McKayla Hooper: Yeah, we have to like, treasure the time that we have or whatever.

Tragedy Girls (2017, Tyler MacIntyre) review
29 July 2017 | by DarksidecrewSee all my reviews

It is film festival time once again so it is a great chance to check out smaller films like this on the big screen. This one is a twist on the slasher genre following two horror obsessed teenage girls who use their online blog about real-life murders to manipulate their way into the spotlight. It breathes life into the slasher genre and is also a great take on the dark side of social media. It has some inventive camera work that makes the most of its modest budget backed up with good performances all around.

I feel a shades of Heathers (1988) and it certainly has a few nods to some classic slasher films. It is not the first film in recent years to put a new twist on slasher films with good results... The Final Girls (2015) and You're Next (2011) come to mind but I think this one is better than those and is sure to become a cult favourite in years to come.

7/10
