When young suburbanites Farhang (Farhang Ghajar) and Jennifer (Jennifer Fraser) decide to liven up their relationship by killing a random stranger and documenting the event on tape, one of them may not have the guts while the other is only too willing to dive into the viscera. It is all fun and games as they hit the hardware store for supplies, and as they scout out the victims: no children (too fucked up), no women (the "rapey" connotation), no gay men (Farhang does not want to be perceived as committing a hate crime), no old people (as Jennifer does not believe they would be one hundred percent aware), no cripples ("their life is bad enough"), maybe a teenager (for which at least one person in the victim's life might be thankful). While out scouting potential victims with her camera, Jennifer strikes up a friendship with homeless man Gary (Jon Gates) but believes that she has found the perfect target in a "rich asshole" (Rich Piatkowski). Stalking the man only and becoming privy to his double life only provides Jennifer with more incentive to kill him, but Farhang is concerned that the act will be too personal. When Jennifer lines up a backup victim, things get too real for Farhang, but Jennifer is only getting started. CAPTURE KILL RELEASE is a nice diversion from the usual "found footage" subjects as well as a generally well-executed endeavor. The charmingly snarky killer couple provide some laughs throughout the first half while subtly unveiling other aspects of their personalities and foreshadowing a certain codependency in their relationship that shifts its balance in the aftermath of the murder (a sequence wrought with tension and featuring some uncomfortably proficient prosthetic make-up effects. Ghajar and Fraser both give well-rounded and compelling performances before spiraling out of control during the climax (which is more dependent on performance than gore).

Comments

Eureka have given this HD production a high bitrate, dual-layer encode (some of the home movie VHS footage is real while the VHS footage shot by the characters is HD footage treated in post-production). While some extras with the director and cast would have been nice, all we get are two deleted scenes (the lengthier second one provides some nice character depth) and untreated versions of the "VHS" scenes. Stateside, the film is only available on manufactured-on-demand DVD-R.
