SXSW: Variety Critics Pick the 10 Best Films of the 2017 Festival

VarietyLogo1Tragedy Girls:
A gem from SXSW’s Midnighters program, Tyler MacIntyre’s giddily postmodern horror-comedy isn’t an exercise in spot-the-genre-reference, instead taking style cues from its own central pair of social media-obsessed high school serial killers, played with delirious commitment by Alexandra Shipp and Brianna Hildebrand. There are certainly visual call-backs to “Carrie” and “Cannibal Holocaust” to be found here, but there are far more to “Clueless”; at its best, “Tragedy Girls” plays like a sweet story of a believable high school friendship between two girls who just happen to be sociopaths. — Andrew Barker
