In the new revenge thriller Girls Against Boys, two twentysomething New Yorkers, played by Danielle Panabaker (The Ward, Piranha 3DD) and Nicole LaLiberte, go on a very gruesome killing spree when Panabaker’s character is attacked following a night of clubbing. In short, you might think the result would not be your mother’s cup of Earl Grey — but you would be wrong.
“The reaction that’s been somewhat surprising is that women, especially middle-aged women, seem to like it a lot more than they expect to,” says the film’s writer-director Austin Chick (XX/XY, August). “A lot of the time I’ll get approached after screenings by women who tell me that they didn’t think they were going to like the movie and that it completely surprised them.”
Below, Chick talks more about Girls Against Boys — which opens at New York’s Quad Cinema tomorrow.
