Kill Or Be Killed, Horror Film From Mississippi

Kill Or Be Killed, is an official selection of Oregon Scream Week Horror Film Festival Fall 2018 screened for a huge crowd and sold out audience on October 27, 2018. The judges were impressed by the performance of actress Sydney McKissack and assumed that she was a lot more experienced, based on her emotional performance. Director Robb Rokk did a great job of creating tense moments and mystery throughout the film. Understanding the back story about how this film was created is very interesting. Robb led a group of students through the filmmaking process.  It's good to see films like this being created by students. Especially those that are involved in every aspect of the pre production, production and post production process. Other films that screened with more experience cast, crew and equipment didn't get the same reaction as Kill or Be Killed. It was a good screening. Tagline "A teenage girl is taken captive and discovers a disturbing truth."
