The Scary Movie

Ahwesh’s two young actresses, Martina and Sonja, cross-dress in vampire capes and werewolf claws, re-enacting familiar horror tropes. A roughly corresponding soundtrack of stock screams and ‘scary’ music suggests that the girls’ toying with gender roles and power dynamics may have dire consequences.
