Assassination Nation looks like the kind of film that is going to split as many opinions off-screen as it splits skulls on-screen. The gory, purge-like, horror comedy, revenge film takes a dark look at what happens when the secrets of a small town are let loose by the opening of a digital Pandora’s box. It’s definitely not going to be for everyone, but it seems destined for cult status.
The film stars: Odessa Young, Suki Waterhouse, Hari Nef, Abra star, Joel McHale, Bella Thorne, and Bill Skarsgard.
High school senior Lily and her group of friends live in a haze of texts, posts, selfies and chats just like the rest of the world. So, when an anonymous hacker starts posting details from the private lives of everyone in their small town, the result is absolute madness leaving Lily and her friends questioning whether they’ll live through the night.
