Who's Making That Scary?
A couple plots to murder a random stranger just for the thrill of it, but things turn ugly when one of them decides not to go through with it.
Capture Kill Release is a twisted thriller focusing on a young couple documenting their journey to live out one of their darkest desires as they carefully plot out a heinous crime for the sake of curiosity. On the surface, Jenn and Farhang are two typical yuppies, but Jenn has a twisted urge that she’s always wanted to live out – she’s always wanted to know what it would feel like to take a human life. Her easy going husband Farhang agrees to go through the carefully planned process of picking a victim and getting rid of them while documenting each meticulously planned step along the way. But while they may have carefully thought out every small step and detail of getting away with murder, nothing can prepare them with the guilt and the weight of moving on in the aftermath.
Shot in a found footage documentary style, the film is told from the perspective of the couple’s camera as they document their moral descent for the sake of “art”. As the events play out, Farhang starts to find the camera more invasive in his life as he tries to move on from their terrible crime while Jenn finds the presence of the camera addictive and refuses to let her “film” come to an end.
