POPCORN FRIGHTS: Bad Girl Boogey (2022)

“One Halloween, blood was shed by the wearer of 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.”

Twelve years ago, Angel (Lisa Fanto) lost a mother to the mask, which empowers whoever wears it with the hatred of everyone who has ever worn it.  Angel is struggling to deal with the last few days of high school, as she and her friends have identities that cause the world to hate, fear and reject them.

When the mask is found and the killings start all over again, Angel must find out who or what the masked killer is, then stop them before she loses any more of her found family.

Director and co-writer (with Ben Pahl Robinson) Alice Maio Mackay also made another movie that I really enjoyed, So Vam, and the goal with this movie was to “be even better.” Mackay is a 17-year-old transgender award-winning filmmaker based in South Australia and from the two films I’ve seen from her, she definitely has the talent to go beyond these already quite well-made movies.

Also, if you watch that trailer, you may notice the voice of Bill Moseley, which incredibly adds to the scare potential of this movie.

Bad Girl Boogey premieres Sunday, August 21st at Popcorn Frights and will be available to watch virtually as part of the festival.
