Synopsis by Augustine Chay
Writer-director Sam Levinson’s black comedy-thriller film draws a parallel between the Salem witch trials and contemporary digital culture. The suburban town of Salem descends into violent chaos after a data hack exposes everyone’s secrets. Four young teenage girls (Odessa Young, Suki Waterhouse, Hari Nef, and Abra) turn into sword-wielding femme fatales to survive the catastrophe.
