May I Kill U? on DVD in April

20 March 2013

Baz is one of Britain’s new breed of police – a cycle cop. Although he at first appears to be a likeable figure of fun, a freak accident turns him into a psychopathic killer. Launching a one-man campaign to clean up the streets of London of no-hope criminals, he despatches them whilst filming everything on his helmet-cam and, ever polite, asking them "May I kill you" before doing so. Soon he has become an internet and Twitter phenomenon using the alter-ego @N4cethelaw. When the tables are turned on him in a bizarre twist of fate, Baz’s true identity looks set to be exposed. Can he survive to ride a nother day?

May I Kill U? stars actor/comedian Kevin Bishop as Baz, with a strong supporting cast that includes highly popular star of stage and screen Frances Barber as his domineering mother. The film was written and directed by Stuart Urban, a veteran of TV whose credits include The Bill and Our Friends in the North.

May I Kill U? is a film that has really split opinion, but the division here is kind of interesting. Hated by some of the mainstream publications like Empire and Total Film, it's found some solid support on web-onely film sites like Screengeek and Horror Talk, though it also found a champion in The Observer's Philip French, who called it "funny, sharp and ruthless."

You can make up your own mind on 15th April 2013 when May I Kill U? is released on UK DVD by Eureka Video and Vectis Vision at the RRP of £12.99.

Special features will include:

  • Commentary with writer-director Stuart Urban and actor Kevin Bishop

  • Making-of featurette

  • Interview with Stuart Urban

  • Psychoanalysing Baz – an interview with criminologist Dr David Holmes

  • Behind-the-scene clips (SFX test – rehearsal of Police raid with Police Consultant)
