Commitment phobic Morgan and her ex-girlfriend Jean are locally famous true crime podcasters obsessed with female serial killers. There’s a chance they may still have feelings for each other, but co-dependence takes a back seat when Morgan meets the mysterious Simone during her Food Coop shift. Blinded by infatuation, Morgan quickly signs up for the relationship, ignoring warnings from friends that her new love interest is practically a stranger.

When Jean shows Morgan proof that Simone may not be who she says she is, Morgan accuses Jean of trying to ruin the best thing that’s ever happened to her. But as she and Simone move into commitment territory, Morgan starts to notice red flags—maybe Jean was right and Simone isn’t as perfect as Morgan’s made her out to be.

Morgan and Jean investigate Simone as if she were a subject of their podcast, they uncover disturbing clues—a death at the Food Coop, a missing friend, a murder weapon—leading them to suspect her not only of mystery, but of murder. In the end, Morgan has to examine all the evidence in front of her: Is she just afraid of what it means to be in a relationship or is her life actually in danger?

 

 

NEW YORK TIMES“My favorite of the American films, Ingrid Jungermann’s ‘Women Who Kill,’ is a comedy so low-key and diffident, not to mention morbid, that it can take several beats to catch on to the jokes.” –Mike Hale

VARIETY“A shaggy, banter-driven quasi-thriller in the mode of MANHATTAN MURDER MYSTERY (or THE THIN MAN movies, for that matter), WOMEN WHO KILL offers a drolly amusing, lightly macabre variation on the standard lesbian romantic comedy.” – Dennis Harvey

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER“Murderously smart and funny. Jungermann maintains a suitably dark undercurrent with an impressively light touch.” -Sheri Linden

INDIEWIRE – Ingrid Jungermann’s Debut is the Best Lesbian Horror-Comedy Ever. “Ingrid Jungermann’s whip-smart satire offers a wry snapshot of self-involved New York lesbians that’s both enjoyably smarmy and unsettling in equal doses.” -Eric Kohn

 

Director: Ingrid Jungermann, 2016, USA, 93 min.
