Killers Sundance Trailer

"Why do this?" "Because we can." Yet another Sundance 2014 film debuting a trailer to kick off the festival is a Park City at Midnight selection titled Killers. The second feature comes from filmmaking collaborators Kimo Stamboel & Timo Tjahjanto, who last came to Sundance in 2013 to present their crazy segment "Safe Haven" (you know the one) from anthology horror V/H/S/2. They're back again with a film about two serial killers who post their violent crimes online in a psychotic battle for notoriety. It "soon becomes clear that they will square off with one another face to face." The cast of Killers: Kazuki Kitamura, Oka Antara, Rin Takanashi, Luna Maya, Ray Sahetapy. This looks bloody and painful, but still fun. Take a look.

Here's the trailer for Kimo Stamboel & Timo Tjahjanto's Killers, found on YouTube (via The Film Stage):

Plot from the Sundance 2014 guide: Mr. Nomura is an eerily handsome, sharply dressed, sociopathic serial killer who preys on the women of Tokyo. In Jakarta, a world-weary journalist named Bayu finds himself unexpectedly falling into vigilantism after brutally killing two sadistic robbers. When each posts videos of his violent sprees online, the pair find one another on the Internet and begin a toxic and competitive duel. While Bayu clings to the hope that he can resume a normal life, Nomura continues to spill blood without remorse. Killing, advises Nomura, is something everyone ought to consider. Timo Tjahjanto, co-director of V/H/S/2 segment "Safe Haven", collaborates with longtime filmmaking partner Kimo Stromboel on their bleak and blood-soaked second feature as creative team The Mo Brothers. Find more at Sundance 2014.

I think the trailer doesn't look bad, though the voices ("because we can") seem a bit over-acted. Perhaps I'll watch it on 'VHS'. (Got some ancient machine left in the attic...)
