Words from Jeffery Self...

"What excites me about this uniquely terrifying and laugh out loud movie is that, like BAGHEAD and FUNNY GAMES, it gets you so comfortable with its chatty, mumblecore dialogue and realistic characters, but then pulls the rug out from under you. Just as it would happen in reality, if the strange person your friend was blindly falling for started chopping up all your friends..."

Hello darling friends, horror hounds, lovers of the unusual...

We're extremely excited to let you in on a little, dark secret -- YOU'RE KILLING ME is a comedy-slasher coming to a city, festival, theater, and VOD platform near you... with your help!

This is coming from us, straight to you, with LOTS of elbow grease and a very bloody heart. We're Jim Hansen and Jeffery Self. You may have seen our stuff
HERE or HERE or HERE or HERE or generally around the web or telly. We've been making videos for several years now -- here in the unpredictable Los Angeles desert -- and we're teaming up to bring you a long-form bit of the bizarre!

We love comedy. We love outrage! We love the complicated. So, we've crafted a story, aptly titled YOU'RE KILLING ME. Set in the delightfully dry, gay echelon of Silver Lake, CA, it focuses on the super comfortable, self-involved, obscure-entertainment obsessed men and women and gays and straights who, in between work hours, put emphasis on drinks, house parties, malicious games and laughter. These people are sometimes known as "friends."

Into this group of friends, we introduce a killer. Our killer is welcomed into this world entirely because he is good-looking. They forgive his odd behavior, enjoy having an audience, and never once take him seriously. What begins as a bitchy, bitchin' good time quickly downspirals into a hellish dissection of staying aware. We turn to the wise tome of Oprah (or was it Maya Angelou?) -- "people tell you who they are if you just listen."

Our characters just aren’t listening. And they are paying the price.

Join the Splatter!

With a cast as repulsive and deranged as the premise, YOU'RE KILLING ME brings together favorite "hey that guy" and "hey that girl" and "hey that gay" entertainers from EVERY walk of life... a.k.a. other parts of Los Angeles. We give you Drew Droege (witch / star of the Chloe videos), Jack Plotnick (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Mentalist), Matthew McKelligon (LOGO's Eastsiders), Edi Patterson (Californication, 2 Broke Girls), Bryan Safi (FunnyOrDie's "Throwing Shade"), Matthew Wilkas (Gayby, HBO's Looking), and a few surprise vaudevillians...

We've come this far with buckets of blood, the help of many night owls, sweet favors, and repeated viewings of DRESSED TO KILL and DEATH BECOMES HER -- but in order to COMPLETE the film, cover our costs of location fees, pay our darling actors, get a spankin' great editor to help blend these guts, heighten the production values AND include some amazing cameos to create a really, really special gay horror for the audiences who seek out these types of films and deserve them, we come to you for help in fundraising!

It's all for you, Damien...
