Here’s the complete news release:

As a prelude to the April 22 opening of the Miami edition of the MiFo LGBT Film Festival ( organizers present You're Killing Me, the second in its MiFo GLOW series, on Thursday, February 18 at 7 pm. The screening takes place at O Cinema Wynwood, 90 NW 29th Street, Miami. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased .

Directed by Jim Hansen, You're Killing Me stars L.A. comedy favorites as gay men so steeped in irony and sarcasm that they don’t know a serial killer when they meet one.

This mix of horror, camp and romantic comedy shows what happens when narcissistic, wannabe Internet star George meets Joe, a monotone serial killer. Joe (Matthew McKelligon) just told his boyfriend, George (Jeffrey Self) that he is a serial killer. George thinks that his boyfriend Joe is hilarious... and he just saw Patricia Arquette at Target!!! Joe and George meet just as Joe is coming out to himself as someone who loves to kill. George, on the other hand, can't decide which wig to wear for his next YouTube video. As George's friends start to disappear, the remaining group takes matters into their own hands. Get ready to laugh hysterically as you cover your eyes in fear.
