The biggest purchase of this year’s Sundance Film Festival, “Assassination Nation” is a pitch-black satire with classic horror leanings and 21st century style. An intriguing first trailer teases Sam Levinson’s new film as “the story of how my town, Salem, lost its mother-fucking mind” in the wake of a debilitating hack. Then unfolds a series of trigger warnings for everything under the sun, including “toxic masculinity,” “sexism,” “giant frogs,” and “fragile male egos.” (indiewire)
