Kill for Me

Roomies, sheesh!

Rod Lott February 8th, 2013

Rent’s a bitch. And that is why, six months after her best friend went missing, Amanda (Katie Cassidy, TV’s Arrow) finally gives in to getting another roommate, Hailey (Tracy Spiridakos, TV’s Revolution). The two college students turn out to have something in common, however: abusive men.


For Hailey, it’s her dad (Donal Logue, Silent Night). For Amanda, it’s a stalkery ex-boyfriend. But problems can solved and, you know, you scratch my back, I scratch yours. In other words, Kill for Me, I kill for you.

Director Michael Greenspan’s follow-up to the disastrous Wrecked is a marked improvement. It’s like a gender-swapped take on Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train, but with a heavy dose of Single White Female and a chaste lesbian twist. What it is not is original or unpredictable, or really all that compelling.  

But Kill for Me is watchable, like an above-average made-for-TV movie with high production values. Much of it is due to Cassidy who, I state again, is a much better actress than she is given credit for, because people can’t see past her impossibly blessed genes. Why not notice both?

Aside: I hereby call for an immediate ban of scenes of people talking while eating, especially noodles. —Rod Lott
