There’s a murderer on the loose in Kill Me Please—and the teenage girls in the Rio neighborhood favored by the killer react with both fear and fascination. Anita Rocha da Silveira’s debut feature mixes dark menace and burgeoning sexuality to achieve what looks to be a distinctly stylish result.

We’re intrigued, to say the least... and not just because we love and can relate to the title. Kill Me Please opens September 1 at the Alamo Drafthouse in Brooklyn, NY; visit Cinema Slate for additional information.
