I Put a Hit on You

poster 5Running Time: 78 minutes

Directed by Dane Clark & Linsey Stewart

Starring Aaron Ashmore and Sara Canning

After her marriage proposal to Ray (Aaron Ashmore) is awkwardly rejected, Harper (Sara Canning) gets really drunk and in an attempt to blow off some steam, posts an ad online offering to trade her engagement ring for Ray’s death. The thing is, someone replies. And they sound serious. Fearful of what she might have done, Harper runs to Ray’s apartment in the middle of the night to warn him. At first Ray takes the situation lightly; it’s just some nut job online messing with her. But as the night goes on and a mysterious white van stalks Ray’s apartment, suddenly everything becomes more real. As they try to stay calm and deal with this bizarre situation like regular people, they’re forced to confront the downfall of their relationship and figure out where it all went wrong before the hitman takes away any chance of them getting back together.

What the Critics Are Saying:
“Certainly, it’s all a bit ridiculous, but the filmmakers themselves seem charged with the same sort of earnest desire to please as Harper, and it’s admittedly hard to resist.”
–Kevin Jagernauth, The Playlist

“It’s a film carried by its charismatic leads and the little details brought to their characterizations by writer/directors who know that a film like this is only going to work if we like and believe in the only two people that we’re really going to see for a brisk 78 minutes.”
–Brian Tallerico, Film Threat
