Following its successful UK premiere at Arrow Video FrightFest 2019 in August, the female-led British dark comedy A Serial Killer's Guide to Life is coming to iTunes and Digital HD in the U.S. and Canada on January 13th, 2020.
The film follows Lou Farnt (Katie Brayben): a 30-something, self-help addict who wants nothing more than to escape her overly controlling mother and the dead-end seaside town where she grew up. So when strange and strikingly confident new life coach Val (Poppy Roe) suddenly arrives on the scene and invites her on a road trip of alternative therapies, Lou finds the perfect opportunity to leave, and the perfect person to become. Unfortunately for Lou, Val’s a serial killer!
Described as Sightseers meets Thelma and Louise, A Serial Killer's Guide to Life is the debut feature film from writer/director Staten Cousins Roe, and stars Katie Brayben ("Doctor Who"), Poppy Roe (This Way Out), Ben Lloyd-Hughes (Malevolent) and Emmy-nominated Sian Clifford (Vanity Fair).
A Serial Killer's Guide to Life is produced by Forward Motion Pictures – a multi award-winning production company run by husband-wife duo Staten Cousins Roe and Poppy Roe, in addition to producers Charity Wakefield and Giles Alderson.
The feature-length film was inspired by the duo’s acclaimed short film This Way Out, which screened on HBO and Sundance Channel and received multiple awards.
