Year 2017
Runtime 95 mins
Language English

In this dark satire from Alberta's Tyler MacIntyre, two teen girls with a popular blog manipulate a local serial killer into doing their bidding.

If you want a popular online following, you've got to find a way to stand out. For twisted teenagers Sadie (Brianna Hildebrand, DEADPOOL) and McKayla (Alexandra Shipp, STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON), their niche market just happens to be documenting murder. Luckily for them, their small town is being terrorized by a serial killer, Lowell (Kevin Durand, THE STRAIN). After a little bargaining – in the form of kidnapping and electrocution – Lowell begins targeting Sadie and McKayla's enemies as his victims. Now with all of Twitter and Tumblr watching, the girls are suddenly crime scene reporters with front-row seats to the hottest events in town. As the town is thrown into chaos and their blog goes viral, the girls discover that fame comes with a price.

Directed and co-written by Albertan Tyler MacIntyre (PATCHWORK) and featuring comedian Craig Robinson (THE OFFICE), this SXSW and Fantasia selection is a dark satire that gives new meaning to the term click-bait.
