Have you ever meet someone who is offended by everything? You’ve probably wondered if they were all talk, or genuinely concerned about world issues. Director Chris Moore adds something more sinister to the culture of offence with his film Triggered (2018).

In the movie, Callee (Meredith Mohler) is a social justice warrior intent on pointing out every real or imagined transgression. She and her friend Ian (Jesse Dalton) decide to fake an attack from a serial killer for some attention. This triggers the real serial killer to take notice of them…

Meredith Mohler from And Then There Was Blood (2017) is both irratating and vunerable in the role of Callee Bishop. She changes in many ways over the course of the movie, which makes her a pretty complex character. Mohler’s performance makes the movie…

The creepy soundtrack by Luke Zwelsky and the additional music by Jordan Boyd also help to create the film’s dark atmosphere. Triggered raises social awareness and challenges individual beliefs. The horror elements entertain, while your brain processes the ideas presented…
