Tragedy Girls (5 Stars)

"Tragedy Girls" has everything that you would expect from a teen slasher movie: pretty girls, cheerleaders, a high school prom and a triple-digit body count. In theory, anyone who throws these elements together could make a teen slasher movie. Many have tried, and the results have been bland. "Tragedy Girls" succeeds where all the other films have failed. It has originality that turns the whole genre on its head, making it the best slasher film of the 21st Century. It would take a lot to beat it. Maybe "Tragedy Girls 2"? If a film has ever begged for a sequel, this is it.

Sadie Cunningham (Brianna Hildebrand) and McKayla Hooper (Alexandra Shipp) are two stereotypical shallow in-girls, the type you see in any high school drama. Together they have a Twitter page called Tragedy Girls, in which they report the latest killings in their town. They have trouble gaining more than a few hundred followers for the simple reason that there aren't enough murders. There's only one solution: they have to kill people themselves. This has the added perk that they can provide inside information and exclusive photos for all of the murders.

Brianna Hildebrand.

Alexandra Shipp.

Both actresses are members of the X-Men, but they haven't yet appeared together in the same film. Brianna Hildebrand played Negasonic Teenage Warhead in "Deadpool". Alexandra Schipp played Storm (Ororo Munroe) in "X-Men: Apocalypse". There are just too many X-Men to go around.
