We Are Indie Horror is getting bombarded with a ton of new releases coming in the next few weeks. This is a wonderful problem to have as the indie scene is continuing to grow and get recognition across the board. Since that is the case, we have decided to combine two news stories about two indie releases hitting the street at the same time. The date to mark on your calendar, March 7th
First up, the found footage flick which puts an intriguing spin on the infamous serial killers known as the Barbie and Ken killers. Capture, Kill, Release will be available everywhere in North America following an incredibly successful and critic capturing festival run through MidnightReleasing. Capture, Kill, Release tells the following story:
A young married couple documents their descent down the rabbit hole as they seek to fulfill one of their darkest desires: kill a stranger and film it for posterity. Strain and second thoughts pull at their devotion to each other as they carefully plot out a heinous crime for the sake of curiosity. While they may have carefully thought out every small step and detail of getting away with murder, nothing can prepare them with the guilt and the weight of moving on in the aftermath. Shot in a documentary style from the perspective of the couple’s camera, the film follows unflinching as they document their moral decay for the sake of “art”.
Co-directors Nick McAnulty and Brian Allan Stewart deliver a romantic bloodbath that blends the true horrors of the Barbie and Ken Killers with the tropes of found footage, to stomach-curling effect.
