IndieWire called Women Who Kill the best lesbian horror-comedy ever. Ingrid Jungermann, of webseries The Slope fame, directs and stars in this wry and witty American indie.
Morgan (Jungermann) and Jean (Ann Carr) host a semi-famous podcast about female murderers, and are successful in their work despite not working out as a couple in the past. When Morgan starts dating the mysterious Simone (Sheila Vand, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night), her professional interests start to infiltrate her personal life, as doubt and fear take hold. It probably doesn’t help that her only confidant is in prison for murder.
What plays out is like a who-dun-it mystery, with red herrings and coincidences luring us all into a sense of uncertainty in a story that is equal parts thrilling and amusing. As the accusations start to pile up in Morgan’s head, she gets caught up in this whirlwind of fear with intense consequences.
Drawing on all the shadowy bits of modern romance and the unknown secrets in new relationships, Women Who Kill gets surprising laughs out of suspicion and paranoia.

“Beneath the humorous (seldom bloody) jabs, she exposes the equation of love with danger that can fuel a fear of commitment.” – Hollywood Reporter
