When a film turns up on Fatso that you've never heard of, with actors - apart from Nicholas Hault - you've never heard of, you know there's a problem. This is one of those movies.
Lies. Betrayal. Murder. Just another day in the music industry.
A&R man Steven Stelfox (Nicholas Hoult) is slashing and burning his way through the music business, a world where ‘no one knows anything’ and where careers are made and broken by chance and the fickle tastes of the general public. Fuelled by greed, ambition and inhuman quantities of drugs, Stelfox lives the dream, as he searches for his next hit record. But as the hits dry up and the industry begins to change, Stelfox takes the concept of “killer tunes” to a murderous new level in a desperate attempt to salvage his career. Based on John Niven’s best-selling novel, KILL YOUR FRIENDS is a dark, satirical and hysterically funny evisceration of the Nineties music business.
