Revenge horror Girls Against Boys was picked up by Anchor Bay at this years SXSW festival, and they have now announced that the film will get a small theatrical run in New York and Los Angeles on 1st February. While no other release details have been revealed, a brand new official poster appeared on-line yesterday, and we have the poster (which is rather pleasing on the eye!) right here for you to enjoy!
Girls Against Boys found an early champion in Charles Ealy, Austin American Statesman, who called the movie “provocative,” “stylishly filmed” and praised Panabaker and LaLiberte’s performances as “excellent.”
The female revenge killing spree thriller, written and directed by Austin Chick (XX/XY), stars Danielle Panabaker (Friday the 13th, The Crazies) and Nicole LaLiberte (Dinner for Schmucks, Kaboom). Panabaker plays Shae, a 21-year old student who, after a brutal sexual assault, teams up with fellow nightclub bartender – LaLiberte’s “Lu” – on a weekend of one beautifully staged execution after another. Girls Against Boys is produced by Aimee Shieh and Clay Floren.
Girls Against Boys is a character-driven, psychological thriller about two girls on a killing spree in New York. With edgy and ironic humor and a darkly meditative tone that is far more European or Asian than typically American, it is also a coming-of-age story about a young woman coming to understand how the world really works. It’s a ride for sure, and it even gets more than a little gruesome, but it’s character-driven rather than action-driven, and it has a psychological twist that’s more like a way of reading the film than a big reveal.
