Assassination Nation

I knew pretty much nothing about this movie, but I came across it on Prime Video while looking for some Halloween-themed stuff to watch, and I’m glad I jumped in (I did so after watching the trailer). It’s not necessarily a horror movie, but it does get inspiration from stuff like Heathers and The Purge, as well as bunch of other non-horror movies, like Kids. It’s about the extremes that a town can go to after a hacker starts releasing personal info (text messages, browser histories, etc.) of people in that town, and centering on a group of four teenage girls who then take matters into their own hands (after being targeted). It’s raw, graphic, fun, weird, and a lot of other things, and I found myself highly entertained.
