A giant middle finger to the patriarchy, f**kboys, and our current White House administration, this movie was bold, brazen, unfiltered, and unnerving in the best way. AN ABSOLUTE MUST-SEE!!!
From the get-go, Levinson makes every wrongheaded directorial decision imaginable in an apparent effort to make one loathe Assassination Nation—and his success in that regard proves this teensploitation schlock’s lone triumph.
Energetically lurid, gratuitously violent and a hell of a lot of fun, horror-satire Assassination Nation is a throwback to black-comedy teen flicks of yore, but with a bitingly timely feel.
The “social commentary” feels exactly as derivative as the rest of the film, like someone artlessly smushing together imagery they’ve seen, a sort of uncanny Muzak of hip provocation written by a less coherent Bret Easton Ellis.

Movie Info & Cast
Part horror, part satire, part throwback teen flick and part topical modern commentary - Assassination Nation is juggling a LOT. And yet at heart this button-pushing indie darling from writer/director Sam Levinson is a simple story about a town spiraling into violence and madness. When a data hack lays everyone’s digital secrets bare, their online selves come crashing down onto their offline reality – and obviously the only solution is to rally some crazy murder posses for an all-out witch hunt to find the culprit. Caught in the center are a group of teenager party girls who must band together if they want to survive the onslaught. The film stars Odessa Young, Suki Waterhouse, Hari Nef, Abra, Bella Thorne, Bill Skarsgård and Joel McHale.
