Hollywood ruins lives.
What started as a joke casually said by a friend about her ability to commit murder, Gillian (Gillian Wallace Horvat), takes this opportunity to prove she’s a fresh, creative filmmaker and capable of murder in the same breath. Armed with a GoPro and a DSLR, Gillian documents her attempt to commit the perfect murder.
Just like cool ranch doritos, you can’t have just one. Gillian starts enjoying killing and with her desire to be a provocative and fresh filmmaker, she continues to kill and film her conquests. She’s both random and meticulous in choosing her victims all the while her relationship with her boyfriend falls apart, she is dropped by her management and has to deal with two douchebag producers who don’t know how to talk to a woman.
Gillian Wallace Horvat directs and co-wrote with Chase Williamson a devilishly smart satire about how fucked up the Hollywood system is. No matter how dark, original or thought provoking something is, if there isn’t a strong, likable female lead, it won’t sell. You can do everything that you are asked, but will get criticized for not making it personal or add flare. I Blame Society is a hilarious take on how misogynistic the world of murder can be while empathizing with the killer and seeing it from her point of view.
