Smart and highly enjoyable take on the slasher genre
15 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Living in a small-town, teenage best friends who run an online site obsessed with real-life death want to create their own story to capitalize on the buzz their site creates in the aftermath of a string of deaths and try their own hand at the style where no one is safe when they're done.

This was quite the fun and enjoyable effort. One of the film's finest points is the fact that there's a rather large connection to the way it absorbs modern society in the current day and age. This one starts off immediately with this type of brazenly modern social media-obsessed culture where the girls set their trap and knock out the supposed killer before taunting him with their lingo and fan- girl mindset that gives them the appearance of being quite in-depth with modern society. That this one features them so continuously on their blog, focusing on hashtags and getting their posts out onto the world that it delves so deeply into the modern world that it resonates incredibly well due to that factor. The screens showcasing the different messages or tweets for their work that it furthers this even more, and it manages to give this a really strong stylistic look that gives this one a nice feel. Even with all this work to tie it into the modern culture, there's still the horror elements at present here which are pretty accomplished and manage quite a lot to like. The initial stalking in the woods at the bridge is a rather straightforward affair, but the remaining scenes are played more for black comedy with the way these teenage girls can overcome and overpower their much larger, more powerful victims gives this a comic edge. From the way in which they start the massacre at the school garage to the ambush at the gym where they take down their biggest obstacle yet, these more horrific scenes intended to be funny give this a strong and overall like to like feel when coupled with the rather enjoyable technological connections. The finale at the prom manages to generate a lot of fun by really letting loose with a fun time while offering the more action-packed stalking and chasing to come full-circle while also giving the film a really engaging and strong finish which is quite a rousing way to finish. These here manage to give this one a lot to really enjoy while it does have a few minor issues to be had here. While it does generate a lot to like, there's a few flaws here. The most noticeable issue is the fact that there's no accounting for how the police go about their investigation here as there's no reason why they couldn't have figured out who's doing the killings. The fact that they run such a blog at the particular time this occurs gives them such a red flag that it's almost impossible why they're not targeted sooner in the investigation, and it turns even more obvious once they get to the different bodies found around the town. Even more obvious is their cold and callous attitude after everything, and how they always seem to be in the right spot at the right time is way too suspicious to ignore so their antics only seems to be that way in order to keep the film going. Some of the effects-work in the kills look off with the blood-splatter being way too fake, but overall it's not that bad of an issue.

Rated Unrated/R: Extreme Graphic Language and Graphic Violence.
