What's on Tonight: BAD GIRL BOOGEY (2022) on Digital Today

Dark Star Pictures will release Alice Maio Mackay’s acclaimed slasher Bad Girl Boogey on digital platforms on July 4, in select theaters on July 7th and a DVD release on July 11. The film received a positive reception at its premiere at Popcorn Frights Film Festival and a healthy festival run. The film also has a fun cameo from horror icon Bill Moseley.

SYNOPSIS: Angel's 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.

16 year old transsexual filmmaker Alice Maio Mackay directed, produced, and co-wrote with Ben Pahl Robinson. Bloody Disgusting's review calls Bad Girl Boogey "an intense, bloody slasher that features compelling performances, gruesomely creative kills, and profound commentary on the deadly consequences of allowing bigotry and hatred to go unchecked."

WHERE TO WATCH Bad Girl Boogey (2022:


“…it’s evident to me that Mackay really knows and loves her genre films. Oh, and the kills here are quite gruesome at times, which should please slasher fans […] Bad Girl Boogey is self-aware, while at the same time, it doesn’t feel like a retread of every other slasher. This is one stylish, out and proud queer horror film by an impressive young talent.” 7 out of 10, HorrorBuzz.com

“One thing that the viewer can’t fault are Bad Girl Boogey’s effects […] Overall Bad Girl Boogey has a lot going for it, for only her second feature Mackay shows a talent for staging the suspenseful and violent scenes a film like this requires. Hopefully, she’ll get a better grasp on pacing and revealing information.” 3.5 out of 5, VoicesFromTheBalcony.com

“Mackay tells a story rooted in reality and elevated by this supernatural plot device to represent a greater societal imbalance. With some memorable kills, likable characters, and a breezy run time, Bad Girl Boogey is not a slasher to miss. With an inventive story, Mackay adds another queer horror entry to their list and to the genre, bending tropes and creating bloody imagery to last.” Warped-Perspective.com
