French teen killer horror film Fever hits all VOD platforms today
The dark, fascinating and horrifying case of young 1920’s dandy thrill killers Leopold and Loeb has been adapted to screen many, many times in such works as Rope, Compulsion, Swoon, Blood Brothers and Murder by Numbers. Now comes French psychological thriller Fever, an elegant, stylish and unforgettable look at the dead eyes of two soul dead killers.
The story revolves around two teen boys who kill a stranger for the thrill of it and seemingly get away with the crime. But as they soon find out, there’s no such thing as a “perfect murder”. Fever was released today on all leading VOD Platforms today from Artsploitation Films.
Official synopsis: High school students Damien and Pierre are from wealthy families with nothing seemingly in their lives to leave them disturbed. Yet they plan and carry out the murder of an unknown woman they have previously only spotted on the street. The police are at a loss, confused by this murder without motive. Zoé, an optician in the neighborhood, who is feeling more and more moved by this inexplicable murder, bumps into the teenage murderers by chance. But this chance fleeting encounter reveals inside her a growing and mysterious desire. Although scared (she could easily be a victim of Damien and Pierre), her erotic attraction for the duo goes beyond that. It gives her a chance to find a way out of the loveless rut that her life has ended up in. While Damien and Pierre, thinking no one will catch them, embark on a journey deep within their pasts. Inspired from a real life story of mindless and seemingly meaningless crime as well as Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s “Crime and Punishment”, this thoughtful psychological thriller will enthrall viewers.
