Death Wish meets Ealing Studios in this black comedy that throws the light on a London policeman who decides enough is enough.

Barry Vartis is a cycle cop – a quiet character who proves to be a figure of fun for both other members of the force and the public at large.

But a freak accident turns him into a psychopath, conveniently as the riots break out on the streets of the capital.

Soon Vartis is dishing out justice of a very heavy-handed nature, capturing his graphic beatdowns on his helmet-cam.

Unsurprisingly these videos become massive hits when they are posted anonymously online, leading to events spiralling out of control as Baz comes up against a host of villains who very much have it in for him.

Directed by Stuart Urban and starring comedian Kevin Bishop as Vartis, May I Kill U promises to be one of the more off-kilter flicks at Frightfest when it screens on Saturday, August 25.
