Killer Among Us is a 2021 American thriller about a rookie female cop who has to save the life of a student from a radicalized serial killer. Teaming up with a veteran cop, the pair’s investigation reaches a desperate climax on the 4th of July.
Directed by Charles Scharfman – making his feature directorial debut – from a screenplay co-written with Daniel Lichtenberg, the Hard Night production stars Yasha Jackson (The Flight Attendant), Andrew Richardson (Martin Eden), Bruce MacVittie (When They See Us) and Imani Lewis (The Forty-Year-Old Version).
Director Charles Scharfman has said: “I made this film as a crime genre-rooted reflection of the polarized and complicated political climate we are currently living in, and that’s even more relevant today than when we shot it.”
In the USA, Vertical Entertainment will release Killer Among Us theatrically and On-Demand on April 16th 2021.
“It really is too bad Scharfman set out to make a piece of propaganda theater instead of a thriller, because both Yasha Jackson and Bruce MacVittie are very good as Parks and Corbucci. If they had been allowed to just work the case, Killer Among Us could have been a serviceable serial killer movie. Sadly, the film as it stands is unwatchable.” J.B. Spins
