The global debut of the first trailer for Gunpowder & Sky’s TRAGEDY GIRLS, a hilarious new spin on the horror genre, featuring biting satire about social media stardom – it’s like a modern-day Clueless (if Cher and Tai murdered people).
TRAGEDY GIRLS stars Brianna Hildebrand (Deadpool) and Alexandra Shipp (X-Men: Apocalypse) as the titular social psychopaths, with Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) and Craig Robinson (This Is The End), who is also a producer on the film.
Best friends Sadie and McKayla are on a mission to boost their social media fandom as amateur crime reporters hot on the trail of a deranged local serial killer. After they manage to capture the killer and secretly hold him hostage, they realize the best way to up get scoops on future victims would be to, you know, murder people themselves. As the @TragedyGirls become an overnight sensation and panic grips their small town, can their friendship survive the strain of national stardom? Will they get caught? Will their accounts get verified?
The film opens in theaters on October 20.
