KILL ME PLEASE blends coming-of-age with slow-burning horror, in the vein of the 1980’s teen slasher genre. Sex, religion, and death run rampant in this ambitious feature debut by director Anita Rocha da Silveira. Bia, Michele, Mariana and Renata are a clique of affluent high school girls. They waste away their days — wandering the fields between the vertigo-inducing high rises that they call home. When a wave of murders occur in their Rio de Janeiro suburb, the girls develop a morbid curiosity with the balance between life and death.
Detroit: Opens Oct. 20 at Cinema Detroit.
