A Serial Killer's Guide To Life

Described as "Sightseers meets Thelma And Louise" (Deborah Haywood, Pin Cushion), A Serial Killer's Guide To Life is written and directed by Staten Cousins Roe (This Way Out) and produced by Forward Motion Pictures - a multi award-winning production company run by husband and wife team Staten Cousins Roe and Poppy Roe, who have just been longlisted as 'Breakthrough Producers' for the 2019 BIFAs.

Following its hugely successful UK premiere at Arrow Video FrightFest in August and special awards mentions at Manchester's recent GrimmFest, the film stars Olivier Award-winning Katie Brayben (Doctor Who, This Way Out), Poppy Roe (This Way Out), Ben Lloyd-Hughes and Emmy-nominated Sian Clifford (Fleabag), and is directed by breakout British filmmaker Staten Cousins Roe, who was recently shortlisted for the prestigious Screen International Genre Rising Star Award.

A Serial Killer's Guide To Life follows Lou Farnt (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.

A Serial Killer's Guide To Life is guaranteed to satisfy the self-help generation, and the modern human's blood lust.
