Don't miss Poor Agnes, «The perfect date movie for psychopaths» (Grimmfest) coming to Toronto, Ontario this fall.

The film that Ain't It Cool News called “a small masterpiece with big ideas" premiered to a sold out audience at Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal, Quebec. Garnering a growing chorus of rave reviews, Poor Agnes will have it theatrical premiere in our home town. Poor Agnes features '”stunning central performances from LORA BURKE as the insane Agnes and ROBERT NOTMAN as Mike, this is one serial killer film that should be held in the same regard as Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, American Psycho and, yes, Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho.” (Nerdly.co.uk)

Synopsis:
Agnes Poelzl is a vicious psychopath. She lives in a state of dreamy contemplation, her powerful mind twisted by insanity. Her talent, discipline and focus are impressive, but her desires have led her down a path of violence and murder.

Mike Mercer is a private investigator researching a cold case. When his investigation leads him to Agnes, he has no idea what he's getting himself into. Agnes seduces, captures, and locks Mike in her basement. She then begins a regimen of brutal psychological torture meant to brainwash him into a state of total compliance.

Chris Thomas is a computer technician who finds himself dating Agnes. He gets the sense that something is off with her, but her forwardness sweeps him off his feet. She is surprisingly tender with him at first, until she grows bored. Agnes then drags Chris into her nightmare.

Agnes, Mike and Chris form a bizarre family, with Agnes as the twisted matriarch lording over her captives with regal authority. Mike struggles to keep his soul as Agnes's willpower overwhelms him, while Chris begs to stay alive. No matter how grim the outlook is, Agnes always makes things worse. But as her crimes escalate, Agnes finds it increasingly difficult to avoid the police.
