Assassination Nation 2018
And now for something different.
Four teenagers are blamed for weaponizing social media in a small town resulting in rabid violence and mass murders. #horror
Assassination Nation begins with split screens as you become familiar with the tone and environment that these young people are living in. Sex, alcohol and heavy “partying” is common among their pier group. The adults in the community, while condemning the young people for sexting, have dark secrets of their own.
The music cues and songs are outstanding as the pulsating beats drive the action as well as dictate the emotional depth of each sequence in the film.
Kudos to the music supervisor. #MaryRamos
The violence is stylized, #Tarantinostyle
, so you can easily interpret the story as an allegory.
The hypocrisy of the adults and officials that impose unrealistic moral and ethical boundaries on these teenagers and the extreme level of ostracism that they must endure is heartbreaking as the teens are terrorized one by one.

Not for the squeamish. Rated R.
Warning: Extremely bloody
