Craig Robinson Can’t Survive This ‘Tragedy Girls’ Clip (SXSW)

A new spin on the slasher genre, Tyler MacIntyre is bringing his Tragedy Girls to the SXSW Film Festival this week.

We have a clip from the film that follows two budding teenage sociopaths who use their online show about real-life tragedies to send their small midwestern town into a frenzy, cementing their legacy as modern horror legends. The footage shows a girl seducing Craig Robinson before he’s eventually attacked from behind.

The full cast is quite impressive, including Brianna Hildebrand (Negasonic Teenage Warhead in Deadpool), Alexandra Shipp (Storm in X-Men: Apocalypse), Craig Robinson (This is the End), Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games), and Kevin Durand (“The Strain”, X-Men Origins: Wolverine), with Jack Quaid, Timothy V. Murphy, Nicky Whelan, Austin Abrams, and Kerry Rhodes.

Sadie and McKayla are two social-media obsessed best friends 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 — just then, Lowell escapes! Now 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.

    Looks and sounds quite enjoyable. But I don’t find this to be “a new spin on the slasher genre”. It seems self referential and aware with horror and comedy mixed together…alas Scream. Nothing new in my opinion but I’m a sucker for slashers of any variety. We will see how this turns out.
