Many teen girls go through the rebellious phase of high school.

With the high school cliques, bullying, rumormongering, these girls establish their own culture and oftentimes rebel against the authorities or society.

In The Sinners, seven high school girls formed their own high school clique in a strictly religious school. In this group, each girl represented a sin due to their personality that establishes their character.

The cast includes Kaitlyn Bernard, Brenna Llewellyn, Brenna Coates, Keilani Elizabeth Rose, Jasmine Randhawa, Carly Fawcett, Natalie Malaika, Aleks Paunovic, and Lochlyn Munro. Courtney Paige directed the film written by Paige, Erin Hazelhurst, and Madison Smith.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Seven schoolgirls, part of a clique dubbed The Sins, become the lethal target of an unknown killer after a harmless prank goes horribly wrong.
