Opening February 1st (in select cities), Anchor Bay has released a brand spankin’ new Trailer for GIRLS AGAINST BOYS (which you can check out, along with an 8 minute clip after the break). The last time I spoke on GIRLS AGAINST BOYS, or, rather, wrote on the subject, I compared it to rape-revenge flicks such as I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE or SAVAGE STREETS. Well, I’ve actually SEEN GIRLS AGAINST BOYS and I wouldn’t make such comparisons now. More of a whacked out THELMA & LOUISE than anything else with murder galore is probably closer to the mark. I’m keeping a lid on a review until after a Screening I’m going to next week, so for now I’m not sayin’ peep on what I think about the film. What I WILL say, however, is check out the new trailer after the break!
When Shae (Danielle Panabaker), a naïve college student, is tormented by several men in a matter of days, she reaches her breaking point, and is drawn into coworker Lu’s (Nicole LaLiberte) twisted plan for revenge. Together, the two embark on a gruesome killing spree, terrorizing and brutally murdering not just their attackers, but any man who gets in their way. However, after a wild weekend of retaliation, the friendship between the girls shifts into a dangerous obsession, and their perverse game becomes a desperate struggle for Shae to maintain control against Lu’s deadly and seductive influence.
Written and directed by acclaimed director Austin Chick (XX/XY, August) Girls Against Boys stars Danielle Panabaker (The Crazies), Nicole LaLiberte (HBO’s “How to Make It in America”), Andrew Howard (Limitless), Michael Stahl-David (Cloverfield), and Liam Aiken (Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events).
