Writer-director Sam Levinson’s black comedy-thriller film draws a parallel between the Salem witch trials and contemporary digital culture. The suburban town of Salem descends into violent chaos after a data hack exposes everyone’s secrets. Four young teenage girls (Odessa Young, Suki Waterhouse, Hari Nef, and Abra) turn into sword-wielding femme fatales to survive the catastrophe.~Augustine Chay
A film in the styling of the exploitation genre, weaponized and taking aim at a brutal reality. It wears a Trigger Warning with pride. Act one is like an indie version of Heathers. Act two is when the film has something to say. Act three shoots its way into The Purge territory. An all around great film, but not for the faint of heart or the squeamish.
