Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.16.17] Brazil thriller drama



Over the last few years, Brazil has emerged as a producer of really interesting genre fare. One of the titles that may have been slightly ahead of it's time is Anita Rocha da Silveira's Kill Me Please which was selected to a number of festivals in 2015 but has been languishing until recently when Cinema Slate picked it up.


Silveira's film looks like part high-school drama and part slasher film as it follows a group of well-to-do teenage girls who go about their daily lives with little parental supervision. When a number of murders terrorizes their neighbourhood, the girls develop an unhealthy obsession with the victims.



Beyond tackling the familiar high-school drama tropes, Kill Me Please also seems to be digging into teens' relationship with technology not to mention there's an 80s teen slasher vibe to the trailer.


Kill Me Please open at the Alamo Drafthouse in Brooklyn on September 1 and the Arena Cinelounge in LA on October 13. A VOD and physical media release is expected by May 2018.



Recommended Release: Prom Night
