Guaranteed to stir up controversy and get tongues wagging, director Austin Chick’s Girls Against Boys is mired up to its neck in murky moral ambiguity.

Following in the footsteps of the likes of Ms.45 and I Spit On Your Grave, the flick is a no-holds barred barrage of violence and sexual aggression.

The film follows pals Shae and Lu, who decide to hit the town after the former’s affair with a married man comes to a sudden halt.

Things take a major turn for the worst though when Shae is sexually assaulted, a situation made even worse when the police refuse to believe her story.

With this being a film of course, Shae’s response is to go on a murderous rampage, taking out as many men as she can before she is halted.

Described as a gleefully immoral tale, Girls Against Boys, which stars Danielle Panabaker and Nicole LaLiberte as the female leads, will likely split audiences when it screens at the festival on the 17 and 20 of October.
