Plot synopsis:
On an otherwise peaceful evening during her first night on the job, a lone night shift janitor finds herself in an unexpected fight for survival when she becomes the target of sinister masked intruders. As their disturbing motives become clearer, she must use her crafty instincts and barbaric violence to make it through the night alive…


” …the movie is entertaining, putting her above many of today’s releases. Terrazzino does a great job as the lead; a couple of kills feel and look quite great. Gore fans will love it. The story is simple and effective, even if some elements make it feel more like a cartoon than a serious slasher.” Fiction Horizon

“There’s a lot to enjoy in it and if you like films about fighting off an intruder (which is usually not my tea, but the trailer enticed me, so what can I say), you will probably really enjoy Hunt Her, Kill Her. So, if you’re into cat-and-mouse thrillers with a female lead and a great synth score, you might just want to hunt this one down.” Nightmarish Conjurings

“The most interesting character in Hunt Her, Kill Her isn’t a human, but rather the furniture factory. With its dark, claustrophobic and labyrinthian interiors, it provides much of the film’s creepy atmosphere through the set design alone. Co-directors Greg Swinson and Ryan Thiessen wisely guide the audience through the factory during the opening credits to give them a bit of a tour before the mayhem begins. There’s some violence, but not too much.” The NYC Movie Guru


” …a survival horror movie that will be enjoyable enough for most fans. Although the villains’ characterization lacks depth, the film makes up for it with the directors’ passion for horror.” Overly Honest Movie Reviews

” …Hunt Her, Kill Her simply isn’t tight enough to maintain the tension that it seeks to create. The cuts aren’t quite well timed enough to make the jump scares effective or the life-or-death struggles feel especially desperate. Ultimately, the film finds all the pieces for a simple but effective slasher lying about its barren factory but struggles to weld them into a memorable whole.” Slant

Hunt Her, Kill Her was released on March 3, 2023.
