‘Fun for the whole family.’
Killer Kate! is a 2018 American comedy horror film directed and co-produced by Elliot Feld from a screenplay co-written with Daniel Moya.

The Feld Films production stars Alexandra Feld, Danielle Burgess and Amaris Davidson. Tiffany Shepis has a cameo role.

The movie features a synth score by John E. Hopkins.

Estranged sisters – Kate and Angie – haven’t spoken since Angie went to college and left Kate to care for their ailing father. In a show of reconciliation, several years after moving out, Angie invites Kate to her bachelorette party held at a remote house booked on a home-sharing app.

The women are unaware that by booking this house, they’re walking into a trap set in motion by a disturbed family of amateur killers who are out for blood to right a cosmic wrong. They soon become unwitting participants in a savage and often ridiculous life-or-death struggle that pits family against family, and past against present…


Killer Kate! had me at the beginning, but because it couldn’t really make up its mind – I lost interest. It’s well-acted and well shot, but unless you’re the most brilliant writers and the most talented directors – making a multi-tonal film is almost impossible. Case in point.” Horrorfreak News

“Overall this movie looks great and is clearly the product of a team with a focused vision. The performances are believable, the kills are bloody and the comedy works. It may not be perfect, but it fits well with other great recent horror comedies […] I wanted to see these ladies succeed. I wanted to see this sisterly relationship work out.” 85% Nightmare on Film Street

Killer Kate may please genre fans, both for those who like the emotional drama of a Lifetime movie and the insanity of a B-movie horror film. The 80-minute run time is perfect for this film as it goes by pretty quick, but fun nonetheless.” Rating: B- World Film Geek

Filming locations:
