Vertical Entertainment will release Killer Among Us on demand April 16th.

Producer Dan Clifton: “We could not be more excited to have Vertical Entertainment distribute Killer Among Us. This was a special film to make with Charles, producer Bernard Hunt and our whole team, and I’m excited for audiences to see it this spring.”
Josh Spector negotiated the deal for Vertical Entertainment with Dan Clifton of Top Right Corner on behalf of the filmmakers.
