R | | Comedy, Crime, Horror
A twist on the slasher genre, following two death-obsessed teenage girls who use their online show about real-life tragedies to send their small mid-western town into a frenzy, and cement their legacy as modern horror legends.
The Sweethearts Bridge from the opening was a practical location suggested to the filmmakers by locals. This sequence was originally scripted to take place at a Lover's Lane. The bridge was established in 1996, which was the same year Scream (1996) was released (which was a major influence on this film).
If Sadie needs, like, an alibi or something just to get her out of a jam just tell her she can say she was with me watching some Dario Argento movie, okay?
McKayla Hooper: Dario DiGiorno.
Jordan Welch: D-Dario Argen-Argento...

When Josh Hutcherson's character is being killed, a man stops on the highway to ask what was going on. Sadie reassures him that everything is fine, and the man drives off. There's no sign of the wrecked motorcycle, or the spikes they had laid across the road, and there's no indication that they removed both things after the wreck.
