Director's Statement

Ng Zhen Hao's statement

"When I first read the script of Caffeinated Killer, I wanted to show the harsh reality of the environment around us. Be it alleys, streets, parking lots, anywhere as I am very drawn to this theory that environments can shape a person's character. I wanted to portray claustrophobia - what's it like being a small lone ranger in a place that is so vast of space?

Denis Villeneuve's films have always been my inspiration for the vision of Caffeinated Killer. His films such as Blade Runner 2049, Sicario, and Prisoners help me to indulge myself in the scenes with the characters. That's what I was going for when making Caffeinated Killer, to invite anyone watching the film to be "present" in the environment on it."
