The found footage films released recently are absolutely killing it. The latest entry is a thrilling, kinetic, and fun film directed by Nick McAnulty (Uncle Brian) and Brian Allan Stewart (Annie and the Dog) called Capture Kill Release.
A couple plots to murder a random stranger just for the thrill of it, but things turn ugly when one of them decides no t to go through with it.
When Jennifer (Jennifer Fraser) and Farhang (Farhang Ghajar) decide to plot out and kill a human being for the experience of it, we get to follow along, step by bloody step. But while the sociopathic Jennifer is gung-ho, the more reserved Farhang is having second thoughts. But some people just won’t take no for an answer…
Capture Kill Release just blew me away. The acting is phenomenal on all fronts, but Jennifer Fraser really sinks her teeth into her role as the sociopathic Jennifer and never lets go for a single second. She is charming enough in many situations for the viewer to see why Farhang was attracted to her, but then easily snaps into her darker side without hesitation. She is incredible!
Farhang Ghajar is given the less glamourous role here, but he does a great job portraying a man who starts out exciting about this project, but soon sours on the idea. But he finds it very hard to escape the charismatic hold Jennifer has on him.
Capture Kill Release was shot using a hand held digital camera with a little bit of old school VHS sprinkled in for great effect. The practical effects and makeup are really impressive, and sure to catch the eyes of gorehounds. Best of all, there is just enough humor to keep the film from getting too heavy. It’s great work by the directors and writers.
With ample amounts of sociopathy, kills, and blood to go around, Capture Kill Release is a film any horror fan will love. It is now streaming via Digital HD and Video On Demand!
