LONDON RIOT HORROR-COM

British comedian Kevin Bishop is due to make his horror debut in upcoming flick May I Kill U? Bishop plays a policeman on duty during the recent London riots in an intense portrayal of events from earlier this year.

The film is the latest in a long line of horror-comedies and will feature Bishop’s character documenting his quest for retribution on his helmet-cam with the humorous and horrifying results being uploaded to the internet.

As writer/producer Stuart Urban has intimated the narrative will be set against a backdrop of social media and will explore how a vigilante interacts with society whilst exerting his own brand of justice.

The fantastically named Hayley-Marie Axe and recent Doctor Who villain Frances Barber star alongside Bishop. With filming still on-going plot details are scarce but expect this self-aware thriller to be big news next year.

LONDON RIOTS INSPIRE MAY I KILL U?

When the London [Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds etc] riots kicked off in the UK this Summer it had all the marks of a great apocalyptic horror film. Of course, it wasn’t great because it was on our doorstep which was what made it so darn terrifying. It was inevitable that a riots-inspired film would turn up and here it is, in the shape of May I Kill U? 

Director Stuart Urban says, “In the film we explain the interaction of society and a vigilante style killer whose choices play well to the social media gallery, particularly one hungry for  payback because of street crime in the UK.”

This dark comedy began shooting today. We will bring you more information as and when we have it.
