I can understand why there are some who would hate this movie. The film centers around two teenagers brutally butchering people in their town. When you read what happens in this film on paper, it's hard not to draw real-life comparisons to events such as Columbine. And while there is one part of this movie that did kind of cross the line, writer/director Tyler MacIntyre manages to strike an incredibly lighthearted tone. This allows for us to laugh with the movie during these extreme moments of horror. It's not meant to be a disturbing case file on deranged serial killers; rather, it's an entertaining play on old slasher movies where young teenage girls are usually the victims, but here they are now the killers themselves. It's an interesting twist, and it makes for a more compelling movie. Had MacIntyre not pulled off the tone in the way that he did, this film would have been entirely misinterpreted. Through his writing and his work with the actors, MacIntyre sets a mood for Tragedy Girls that makes it a truly entertaining time at the movies...
