“Killer Me” is a bare, gritty feature that has Film Threat convinced that “real filmmakers are actually still out there.” The film is best described as a close cousin of Peter Bogdanovich’s “Targets” and Michael Powell’s “Peeping Tom”:
Joseph Sturgeon awakes one morning, hands covered in blood, a badly infected wound on his ribcage. He doesn’t know what happened. The last thing he remembers from the previous evening is rage, his neighbor, the nightmare again.
Anna, desperate, lonely, follows Joseph, hoping to make a connection. She finds him mysterious and driven. An awkward courtship begins…

The film’s DP, Neal Fredericks, worked on a little film called “The Blair Witch Project” — it was his job to give “Killer Me” a grainy, creepy, low-budget look. And director Zachary Hansen upped the spooky factor by scoring his feature using a children’s Fisher Price toy recorder.
Grab your flashlight and head over to the official “Killer Me” site for cast bios, film stills and more.
