From the mind of Brooklyn-based writer/director/filmmaker Dan Yadin comes the dark and twisted new animated comedy about the end of the world as we know it: I WANT TO KILL, stars comedians James Adomian (@midnight, Children's Hospital, Comedy Bang! Bang!), Amber Nelson (Guy Code, Netflix's 'Characters') and Clark Jones (HBO's 'Crashing', Brooklyn's 50 Funniest People). Robert Holeman (voiced by James Adomian) is normal suburban dad, but he's also a genocidal, drug-abusing astronaut who plans to lift off into space in order to take down the world by hijacking the "G.O.D." satellite. Surprise strikes when he is joined by an unlikely travel companion.
I WANT TO KILL is an unhinged, psychedelic romp through the bleak depths of space—both inner and outer. The cardboard sets and low-rent stop motion add to the feeling of urgency and flammability of civilized life. Astronaut Robert Holeman is fed up with Suburbia, after years of desires going unrealized and confronting his privilege, boredom, and mortality he’s been nudged into a sort of suicidal/genocidal nihilism stoked by a steady diet of drugs. The violent fantasies, anger, and fear don’t belong to just Robert, but also to his neglected girlfriend and son. "i want to kill" is about catharsis and release. Anger unchecked leads to emptiness, but boy is it funny.
