Girls just wanna have fun! And sometimes girls just wanna be famous on social media. So much so that they're willing to turn to murder just to up their online profiles.

Check out the trailer for "Tragedy Girls," a new dark horror satire starring Alexandra Shipp (aka Storm from "X-Men: Apocalypse") and Brianna Hildebrand (aka Negasonic Teenage Warhead from "Deadpool") as two high-school best friends who come up with a sadistic scheme to promote their social media blog by secretly committing murders of teenagers and then pinning the blame on a local serial killer who they managed to capture and hold hostage.

Directed by indie horror filmmaker Tyler MacIntyre (Patchwork) and co-written by MacIntyre and Chris Lee Hill, "Tragedy Girls" features a strong supporting cast that includes Josh Hutcherson, Jack Quaid, Timothy V. Murphy, Nicky Whelan, Kerry Rhodes, with Kevin Durand, and Craig Robinson.

The darkly comedic thriller got mostly positive reviews from critics when it premiered at this year's South by Southwest Film Festival and at Canada's Fantasia and at London's Frightfest. The film will play in a couple more horror festivals, before officially opening in U.S. theaters on October 20th.

synopsis:
Best friends Sadie and McKayla (Alexandra Shipp and Brianna Hildebrand) 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?
