#HORROR [2015]

Conceptual artist & bit-part actress Tara Subkoff makes her directorial debut with the heavily stylized satirical slasher flick, #HORROR.
A group of over-privileged 12-year old mean girls get together for a sleepover that turns deadly when a seemingly harmless game of cyberbullying gets out of hand.
It's gorgeous looking film that unfortunately doesn't seem to gel together with it's narrative or pacing and instead comes off as messy and amateur.  Every single character is so obnoxious and cold it's hard to attach yourself to the film when all it's aesthetics are already testing your patience.  I don't know who this film is trying to talk to, when it's feels like The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants are getting their throats slashed, resulting in the alienation of both the older and younger crowd.    It's an interesting test and I like what it was trying to say but it seems like it's trying way too hard to be something it's not.
