I just across this trailer today and I have to say that I like it. Usually black films show a woman as romantic or involved in a relationship or so forth but Im happy to see an African American woman in film doing something different! Can't wait to see the whole film!


looks good! and lovin the music!


After researching it appears that the company 'advanced eye' (i think thats the name). Well, it appears that they are fairly new to films and this film looks pretty good. Not bad. Im looking forward to seeing the whole film.


I want to like this, because I love femme fatale flicks, but this looks cheesy as hell!

Not particularly impressed by the trailer, but I am a fiend for movies about human predators, so… I'm looking forward to seeing it. Plus, it's in my neck of the woods (my crew and I are based in the D/FW area). Gotta show that Third Coast love!


Cool, cool.

She parked kinda far away…assuming her mark is inside the building?

Do contract killers leave their cell phone in an unlocked car?

Questions. I haz them.


Totally confused. I thought this was a trailer for a film not a music video? What the hell is this film about?


Dope. I'll be looking for this one.


Impressive as it should be. In tone and quality. The actress did her part. The close-ups at the end on the hands and face before the title. Well done. It's clear that the filmmaker has got the chops to make the film; I hope it gets a decent VOD distribution – and maybe even a short theatrical run.

Always thought more trailers – indie/studio – should show a short clip/scene that tells the premise/tale. It's what writers are told all the time: the theme and/or thoroughline in every scene. Kudos.
