Description

"Kill Me Please has all the angsty cynicism of being a teenager." —Brian Tull, HorrorBuzz.com

"Like a Brazilian Angela Carter, de Silveira tells the story of a young woman emerging from a sheltered suburban world to walk a dark path, discovering the wild creature inside herself." —Jennie Kermode, Eye For Film

"De Silveira is part-Lynch, part-social theorist, and part Agnes Varda." —Paul Weissman, Film-Forward.com

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 in Barra da Tijuca, an affluent new neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro. Both privileged and abandoned by busy parents, the girls spend most of their time together. When a wave of murders begins to terrorize the neighborhood, the girls develop a morbid curiosity with the victims - and lines separating life, desire and death begins to break down. Blending coming-of-age with slow-burning horror, partly inspired by the 1980s slasher genre, Kill Me Please is a disturbing and funny dive into teenage sexuality, spirituality, loneliness and fragility - as well as ambitious feature debut by a young and promising Brazilian director, Anita Rocha de Silveira.
