Brianna Hildebrand and Alexandra Shipp are the Tragedy Girls

Most audience members are likely familiar with actresses Brianna Hildebrand and Alexandra Shipp for their roles as super-powered heroines in the X-MEN universe; Hildebrand played Teenage Negasonic Warhead in DEADPOOL, while Shipp was Storm in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Hildebrand and Shipp are the stars of a new horror/comedy called TRAGEDY GIRLS, and the characters they play in this movie are far from their Marvel roles.

TRAGEDY GIRLS will be making its world premiere at SXSW this weekend, and those in attendance will get to see Hildrebrand and Shipp as two death-obsessed teenagers who do some terrible things.

Sadie and McKayla are two social-media obsessed best friends who will stop at nothing to build their online following. The self-titled "Tragedy Girls" kidnap Lowell, an unambitious local serial killer, and force him to mentor them into modern horror legends by committing murders to blow up on the internet. As the bodies fall, the girls become national news and panic in their small town hits a fever pitch — just then, Lowell escapes! Now with the local Sheriff closing in and their relationship on the rocks, the girls must rethink their plan before they find themselves the latest victims of their own killing spree.

The film was directed by Tyler MacIntyre, working from a screenplay he wrote with Chris Lee Hill, based on a previous script by Justin Olson.

Josh Hutcherson, Craig Robinson, Kevin Durand (who played The Blob in X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE), Jack Quaid, Timothy V. Murphy, Nicky Whelan, Austin Abrams, and Kerry Rhodes co-star in TRAGEDY GIRLS. You can see Robinson in a clip from the film over on EW.com.

When you mix Marvel alumni and horror/comedy, you definitely have my attention, and I'm further drawn to TRAGEDY GIRLS by the synopsis. This sounds very interesting me, so I hope it will get a good response at SXSW.
