The Dirties

Matt and Owen are making a movie — a comedy about getting high-caliber revenge on the bullies that make their lives hell at high school — and one of them wants to take the plot more seriously.

Coming out of Slamdance as the Grand Prize Jury winner and spurred on by Kevin Smith, The Dirties could be a powerful look at a terrible phenomenon in a world where we thought movies like Elephant, The Standard and Zero Day had said everything to say. Now with a meta media twist.

Check out the trailer for yourself:

To get even more meta, Matt and Owen are played by Matthew Johnson and Owen Williams. In what’s obviously a labor of love, Johnson wrote, directed, starred in, produced and edited The Dirties and recently said, “We didn’t want to show another version of Hollywood bullying, where everything is over the top and seems way too insane to be real.”

With the goal of creating realistic bullying and violence, I can’t wait to hear everyone blame this movie for causing more violence.
