The crew of a local horror movie showcase is used to broadcasting creepy stories of heinous
killers, but tonight they are the story, trapped with a real killer among them. Fans are tuning in to
the late night show as their favorite horror host, Dr. Perseco, weaves a macabre tale of suspense
and gore, but soon the horror becomes real and Dr. Perseco breaks character pleading for someone
to send help. Will the audience respond or pop more popcorn?!
Thank you to Channing Whitaker for reaching out and hooking me up with KILD TV a film I had heard about and was keen to check out! Pleased to say that the film is smartly paced slasher movie backed up with an excellent variety of characters.
AS mentioned in the official synopsis, viewers become witness to the very real plight of a TV studio crew become trapped by a murderous stranger who may or may not be closer to home than they realise.
Several victims later the remaining crew members band together to try to survive the night but this may be much harder than they can comprehend!
I liked the way KILD TV didn't make the usual mistake in killing off decent characters too early and allowed the actors to grow into their characters. I am not saying that nothing interesting happens in the first two thirds of the movie, there is plenty going on to secure viewer interest and it sets the stage brilliantly for a bloody finale.
This leads nicely to my next point; toward the end the film pulls off an excellently staged killer reveal which really took me by surprise.
The cast did a great job - D.C Douglas as Milton/horror host 'Dr Perseco' is great fun to watch especially while in character as Dr Perseco. He churns out the horror movie host cheese to great effect. Heather Williams as the spunky Geneva really impresses and I would love to see more of her work in the future, shes a bit kick ass! Astrea Campbell-Cobb is alluring as studio newbie Adel while Grace Johnston, Aleeah Rogers and Jared Doreck provide strong support. As mentioned before its great that the characters are well written and given time to evolve and its something I really did appreciate.
A fun and engaging slasher mystery with a very successful whodunit element. Highly recommended!
The even better news is that you can grab a copy of the film right NOW at http://www.kildmovie.com/

Fangoria.com not only gives "KILD TV" a severed leg up on many of its contemporaries" (3 Skulls out of 4) but, also calls it "one of the most anticipated horror offerings of 2016." Well, any anticipation is now officially over because this critically acclaimed bloody shocker is now available on Video-On-Demand with a national VOD release. This, coming on the heels of getting a standing-o and winning Best Picture at the recent Legless Corpse Film Festival where it was touted as "Bloody, Campy...and Fun!!"
With the Special Edition Blu Ray and DVD almost sold out, we can not hold back this award winning film from hitting every major viewing platform, presented in pristine HD quality and 5.1. surround sound. The folks at iHorror.com call the film "A fun B-Movie throwback with a Burton-esque feel." And from Hellnotes.com: "The film has it all: dark humor, grisly gore, and even an intriguing thriller of a mystery." The Festival Tour continues unabated with upcoming screenings set for the Crimson Screen, Crypticon Seattle and Horror Hotel Film Festivals (where it has already been named an Award Winning film). Along the way, at prior fests, the film has already pulled in two Best Picture nods, Best Actor and Best Effects. According to Horror Hound Magazine, "KILD TV is exactly what the great majority of horror fans want in a horror film … interesting characters, a mysterious killer, just the right amount of gore, suspense, and a little sex appeal "
Here's the synopsis: "A TV journalist cracks a series of unsolved killings and prepares an expose for broadcast, all the while keeping secret that the twisted killer works at his own station. As he covertly prepares, a skeleton crew begins to air their live, late-night horror show, featuring a ghoulish host. Unbeknownst to all, one crew member has already been viciously murdered and her body hidden. A violent thunderstorm rolls in as two more of the crew and the journalist disappear. The TV show continues until the mutilated body of one of the missing is discovered. The crew frantically tries to flee the building, only to find all lines of escape and communication sabotaged. Lightning strikes, leaving only emergency power, and one hope for rescue: broadcast or die ! They plea for help on the air but the plan fails when viewers believe it’s just a hoax. More slain bodies turn up and the pressure mounts to find the killer before another is found slaughtered. As the mystery unravels, it becomes clear that the killer is one of them. Friends and colleagues begin distrusting each other, and, with every step inching closer to discovering who it is, another body falls."
