Tragedy Girls Review

Tragedy Girls is a delightfully subversive and darkly comedic take on a slasher horror film, though it doesn’t necessarily reinvent the genre. Sadie Cunningham (Brianna Hildebrand) and McKayla Hooper (Alexandra Shipp) are long-time best friends who run a crime blog investigating local murders in their small midwestern town, but they don’t have nearly as many followers as they believe they should. Through their investigation, Sadie and … [Read more...]
