Perfectly timed for our post-“Serial” age, “Women Who Kill” follows podcast co-hosts and ex-lovers Morgan and Jean, who work together on a true-crime series interviewing female murderers. Enter Morgan’s new love interest, the mysterious Simone, who fuels Morgan’s paranoia about the possible horrors that lie beneath the surface of their seemingly normal Park Slope neighborhood. Is she prone to imagining things, or are the threats real? As Morgan is pulled deeper into a paranoid psychological state, she makes the dubious decision to seek advice from Lila, a jailed serial killer played with seething ferocity by Annette O’Toole. Known for her popular web series “The Slope” and “F to the 7th,” Ingrid Jungerman has made a smart and savvy move into film. This electric directorial debut was dubbed by IndieWire as “the best lesbian comedy-horror ever.”
