Meet Rosedale High students McKayla and Sadie. These savvy cheerleader BFFs are obsessed with social media—and murder. Their Twitter feed is devoted to real-life tragedies. But despite the recent work of a serial killer in their small town, likes and retweets are down. Don’t worry, though, they have a plan to get @tragedygirls trending… The ensuing carnage throws their midwestern town into chaos, but totally cements their legacy as modern horror legends!
Tyler McIntyre’s second feature shines in its craft and storytelling, striking the perfect balance between playing to expected clichés and introducing new themes and tropes. With some of the best, most hilarious horror effects we’ve seen in years, TRAGEDY GIRLS is the perfect way to start this week of horror!
The film will be followed by our OPENING PARTY at Silky Jones, 214 E State St. on the Ithaca Commons.

This debut film from Korean director Cho Sun-Ho, A DAY mesmerizes with its simple concept and keeps the audience riveted. Reminiscent of a dark Groundhog Day, Cho’s script plays like a reverse Italian-style murder mystery, turning the tables constantly until the very last seconds. A DAY continues Ithaca Fantastik’s history of recognizing South Korean films, and we couldn’t be more excited to screen Cho’s debut to our internationally-savvy audience!
The film will be followed by our CLOSING PARTY at The Range, 119 E State St. on the Ithaca Commons.
