Macbeth understands the reasons for resisting evil and yet he proceeds with a disastrous plan, instigated by the prophecies of the three Weird Sisters. Thus we must ask the question:
When he fails to play by their rules, they go at it on their own and blossom into their own self-sufficient serial killers in the process.
The scene then effortlessly morphs from a helpless girl fleeing from a murderer to the tables being turned on the guy, with him now being the target. Tragedy Girls is also a lot about branding, believe it or not. Serial killers like the Zodiac Killer or Son of Sam were truly victims of branding and not successfully building a name for themselves.
Mashing up serial killing with social media trends and hashtags oddly fits together quite well. This all makes for an incredibly modern take on serial killers, even more so than say American Psycho or Scream.
It often feels like a Chuck Palahniuk novel. Tragedy Girls wins when it takes relatable teenager problems, like feeling like nothing that you do matters and putting them in the context of murder.
It leads to a number of satisfying parallels.
In fact, it seems to take delight in making each murder more outrageous than the last. Each death goes out of its way to be gratuitous and gory, but in the best way possible. A standout soundtrack also compliments all of these murders. The music selections are all around fantastic and really push the material hard and make it pop more as a result.
McKayla and Sadie, the titular Tragedy Girls who are played with gleeful insanity by Alexandra Shipp and Brianna Hildebrandare as catty and desensitized to violence as the rest of the generation is with trolling and cyberbullying.
They face a mundane senior year at school on one side of their lives and their murder-hungry ids on the other. Kevin Durand who was always a welcome presence on The Strain as the street-smart exterminator, Fet also does strong work here as the over the top, unhinged serial killer, Lowell.
That being said, McKayla and Sadie dish it back just as hard. The film reinforces the dangers of fame as control slowly slips away from the Tragedy Girls.
All of this also beautifully culminates at a prom, because of course it does. That being said, each execution is pulled off in a creative, visually impressive manner. But it takes confidence to push such a compelling component of the film into the background.
Behind everything that goes on here, Sadie and McKayla are still just teenage girls. It presents itself with such confidence and frivolity as it screams its meth-ed out message to anyone that will listen. A strong cast, quick pacing, and a distinct look all help turn Tragedy Girls into something special.In our year of the lord , we’re all just doing it for the clicks.
Trending tweets, clickbait headlines, and in Tyler MacIntyre‘s slick little slasher satire Tragedy Girls, a social media.
