Kill For Me is a compelling drama-thriller that centers around two young women, Amanda (Katie Cassidy) and Hailey (Tracy Spiridakos), who form a close friendship after tragedy strikes both of their lives. Amanda, a traumatized college student who witnessed her father's murder, is struggling to cope with her past and the dark secrets that continue to haunt her. Hailey, a free-spirited roommate, is dealing with an abusive ex-boyfriend who refuses to leave her alone.

As their friendship deepens, Amanda confides in Hailey about her troubled past and the two decide to help each other out by swapping living spaces for safety. But soon after, Amanda discovers that Hailey's ex-boyfriend, who she had a restraining order against, has followed her to the new apartment. Overwhelmed by terror and feeling helpless, she pleads with Amanda to help her deal with the violent ex.

As the two women devise a plan to stop the abusive ex-partner from attacking Hailey, they start to experience something different. They realize that they share more than just a roommate relationship; they both have a dark secret that they are trying to keep hidden. They have both "killed for each other" in the past and that's what makes their bond stronger than just a friendship.

What follows is a gripping and suspenseful story that explores the dark underbelly of friendship, betrayal, and survival. Each character's past unfolds while they face obstacles and learn to trust each other more and more throughout the movie.

Meanwhile, Hailey must come to terms with forgiving herself for what she's done to protect Amanda in the past and how losing her new friend would crush her.

Donal Logue, who plays Amanda's therapist, serves as a powerful supporting character, providing subtle but effective insight into the girls' lives. His therapeutic approach also lends itself to a powerful twist that sets the final act of the movie into motion, leading to a climactic and satisfying conclusion.

Their natural chemistry and ability to seamlessly switch roles between vulnerable victim and fierce protector are a highlight of the film. Adam DiMarco who plays Hailey's abusive ex, also delivers a menacing and grounded performance.
