Movie Review: Capture Kill Release
Director: Nick McAnulty, Brian Allan Stewart
Writer: Nick McAnulty
Stars: Jennifer Fraser, Jon Gates, Farhang Ghajar
Capture Kill Release is based loosely on the Ken and Barbie Killers. The real story is horrifying enough but Capture Kill Release tells the story in such a matter of fact manner that it has an icky layer on.
It tells the story of Jennifer and Farhang who films themselves planning to execute the murder of a random stranger. Things start to go awry when one of them gets cold feet and shit starts to go sideways.
Capture Kill Release also intersperses some home video footage of Jennifer when she was younger at the time it didn't seem all that necessary but it was used to good effect toward the end of the film. People will automatically roll their eyes at yet another found footage film but ignore this one at your peril. It is a great example of this kind of film whilst admittedly bringing nothing new to the table, does things right. McAnulty and Stewart keep the story tight (both in direction & story) and with a believable premise for keeping the camera rolling.
