Things have been going rather well for the TRAGEDY GIRLS as audiences have been responding strongly to the horror/comedy at fests worldwide, and now it’s poised for U.S. theatrical release. The first trailer has dropped today.

Directed by Tyler MacIntyre from a script he wrote with Chris Lee Hill (based on an original screenplay by Justin Olson), TRAGEDY GIRLS will be released by Gunpowder and Sky October 20. The cast is headed by Alexandra Shipp, DEADPOOL’s Brianna Hildebrand, Josh Hutcherson, Craig Robinson (also a producer), Kevin Durand, Jack Quaid, Timothy V. Murphy, Nicky Whelan, Austin Abrams, Kerry Rhodes and Mary Carmen Lopez. The synopsis: “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 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?”

Keep up with TRAGEDY GIRLS at its official website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
