BELLA THORNE, BILL SKARSGÅRD, AND JOEL MCHALE JOIN FRESH FACES ODESSA YOUNG, HARI NEF, SUKI WATERHOUSE AND ABRA IN THE SHOCKING REVENGE THRILLERUNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Nov. 15, 2018 — (PRNewswire) — Four badass young women join forces to overcome their anarchist, patriarchy-filled town in the rebellious and "wickedly insane" (GeekTyrant, Joey Paur) edgy horror-thriller, Assassination Nation, arriving on Digital and the all-new digital movie app MOVIES ANYWHERE, Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand on December 18, 2018 from NEON and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Hailed by fans as the movie of our generation, the film encompasses subversive themes, garnering it with a reputation as "the most aggressive high-school movie in film history" (Indiewire, Eric Kohn). Packed with explosive action, satire and dark humor, Assassination Nation on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital comes with exclusive bonus content including never-before-seen deleted and extended scenes, and a hilarious gag reel taking viewers deeper into the provocative and twisted cautionary tale, making it a must-own film for horror and action fans alike.
Touted by critics as "the first true horror film of the twitter age" (VICE, Adam White), Assassination Nation stars Odessa Young (The Daughter), Hari Nef ("Transparent"), Suki Waterhouse (The Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), and singer Abra as four best friends living in a suburban town where chaos simmers under a façade of lies, during the social-media-crazed age where every mistake you make is documented online forever. The fiercely intense, wildly fun and ultimately empowering film also features a star-studded supporting cast including Bella Thorne (Midnight Sun), Bill Skarsgård (IT), Joel McHale ("Community"), and Maude Apatow ("Girls").
High school senior Lily (Young) and her three best friends live in a world controlled by social media, filled with selfies, emojis, snaps, and sexts. But when their small town of Salem is thrown into a massive data hack outing citizens' private information into the public view, the community descends into full-blown anarchy. When Lily becomes the target after being falsely blamed for the hack, her squad bands together to save themselves and survive a treacherous, blood-soaked night.
