A trailer has been released for the Australian slasher Bad Girl Boogey, which is set to receive a U.S. release in July
A couple months ago, we learned that Dark Star Pictures has picked up the North American distribution rights to the Australian slasher movie Bad Girl Boogey – and at the time, we heard the film would be receiving a VOD, digital, and physical media release on July 4th. But the release strategy is actually a bit more spaced out than that. Dark Star will be giving Bad Girl Boogey a digital release on July 4th, then the film will reach select theatres on July 7th, and the DVD release is scheduled for July 11th. With those dates less than a month away, a trailer for the film has arrived online, and you can check it out in the embed above.
The second film from writer/director/producer Alice Maio Mackay (the first was the 2021 vampire movie So Vam), Bad Girl Boogey centers on Angel, whose mother was brutally murdered one Halloween night, when blood was shed by a deranged killer wearing a parasitic mask cursed with black magic and bigotry. Sixteen years later, when Angel’s best friend is slaughtered by a killer with the same mask, they must overcome their personal struggles, fight their fear, and find the masked killer before he, or it, slaughters everyone they hold dear. Mackay wrote the screenplay with Ben Pahl Robinson.
The Wrap described Bad Girl Boogey as a “queer horror film” and noted that it features a cast of queer and trans actors. Among the cast members are Lisa Fanto, Iris Mcerlean, Chris Asimos, Toshiro Glenn, Lewi Dawson, and Kate Bonney. Genre icon Bill Moseley (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, The Devil’s Rejects, etc.) has a voiceover cameo.
Mackay had this to say about the distribution deal: “I am thrilled to be unleashing my sophomore feature Bad Girl Boogey with Dark Star Pictures for its North American release. I can’t wait for it to connect with its audience of horror-loving queer misfits who I hope will have as much fun watching it as we had putting it together.“
Dark Star President Michael Repsch added: “Bad Girl Boogey is a shock to the system. Writer and director Alice Maio Mackay has masterfully crafted an exciting, visceral slasher film with an important message of identity and bigotry. Her vision is one that will make audiences think, while soaking them in blood and terror.“
