Here's an eight-minute clip reel from the indie thriller "Girls Against Boys" starring Nicole LaLiberte (HBO's How to Make It in America) and Danielle Panabaker (2009's Friday the 13th). In the film, LaLiberte and Panabaker play two New York bartenders seeking revenge: their target are the men who abused them -- and it looks like the girls aren't looking for a simple apology, but rather something much more lethal.
Written and directed by Austin Chick (August), the revenge thriller debuts this week at SXSW.
When Shae (Danielle Panabaker), a naive college student, is tormented by several men in a matter of days, she reaches her breaking point, and is drawn into her friend Lu’s (Nicole LaLiberte) twisted plan for revenge. Together, the two embark on a gruesome killing spree, terrorizing and brutally murdering not just their attackers, but any man who gets in their way. However, after a wild weekend of retaliation, the friendship between the girls shifts into a dangerous obsession, and their perverse game becomes a desperate struggle for Shae to maintain control against Lu’s deadly and seductive influence.
