Strange things are afoot in West Hollywood, or at least that’s the case in the new thriller “Kiss Me, Kill Me,” about a grisly murder and a search for justice. After Dusty (Van Hansis) confronts his boyfriend Stephen (Gale Harold) about his frequent infidelity, he blacks out, only to wake up and discover that Stephen has been murdered. Now, everyone’s looking to Dusty as the prime suspect. The film also stars Brianna Brown (“Devious Maids”), Yolonda Ross (“The Get Down”), Jai Rodriguez (“Queer Eye”), Matthew Ludwinski (“Going Down in LA-LA Land”), Craig Robert Young (“The Last Ship”), Kit Williamson (“Mad Men”), Jonathan Lisecki (“Gayby”) and more. Watch an exclusive trailer for the film below.
“I have always enjoyed a good who-done-it,” says director Casper Andreas. “Growing up, I was a huge fan of both Agatha Christie novels and suspense thrillers, so when screenwriter David Michael Barrett sent me the script for ‘Kiss Me, Kill Me,’ I got very excited. Not only was this a bona-fide murder mystery, it was centered in a world I am very familiar with – gay West Hollywood. We had quite an extensive development period, which gave me plenty of time to school myself in film noir. David’s knowledge of the genre was extensive, and the screenplay pays homage to many of the greats, from Hitchcock to DePalma to even Verhoeven.”
“Kiss Me, Kill Me” will be released on VOD and DVD on Wednesday, December 7, one day after its Los Angeles premiere, courtesy of Spellbound Productions.
