Killer Couples x 3

Killer Couples x 3

4 Episodes

The couple that kills together . . . makes for irresistibly juicy cinema in these lurid, darkly comic tales of love gone wrong. Inspired by the notorious “Lonely Hearts Killers” of the 1940s who preyed on the lovelorn, Leonard Kastle’s indelibly creepy scuzz classic THE HONEYMOON KILLERS is an at once shocking and weirdly touching tale of l’amour fou that was heralded by François Truffaut as his “favorite American film.” No less perverse are the deliciously outré cult gem EATING RAOUL and Ben Wheatley’s wicked, very English black comedy SIGHTSEERS, both of which see seemingly innocuous couples go from buttoned-up and bland to crazed and kinky with audaciously funny results.
