We’ve all heard the saying ‘painting the town red’ in Assassination Nation they literally do it. In a new second UK Trailer for Sam Levinson‘s directed new film promises to deliver a new modern twist to the Salem Witch Trials. The Girls fight back as they ‘Purge’ the town as rumours and gossip that killed the young women all those years ago is now spread by social media.
As in how ‘bloody’ and graphic this film will be we don’t know. We’re promised a feminist exploitation film, One that mixes Heathers, The Purge, possibly recent Coralie Fargeat’s Revenge? The early reviews from the USA are mixed but we know this one is not for everyone. One for the ‘genre’ cinephile!
