‘Don't Kill Me (Non Mi Uccidere)’ is a 2022 Italian Horror Drama Film Starring Alice Pagani and Rocco Fasano.

She eventually resuscitates on her own, only to discover that she must consume humans in order to live and preserve the memories of Robin's love.

About The Director Andrea De Sica
De Sica made his directorial debut with 'Children of the Night,' a coming-of-age film set at an upper-crust boarding school that dabbled with horror themes, before directing 'Baby,' which is about teen prostitution in Rome.
He defined 'Uccidere' as more of a ‘strange coming of age' narrative than a full-fledged horror picture, describing it as a 'romantic and disturbing story of a young woman who dies and then resuscitates for love.'
The same group of young Italian screenwriters that developed 'Baby' are working on the 'Uccidere' screenplay with De Sica, 37, and veteran Italian writer and producer Gianni Romoli, who purchased the rights to the book, which is part of a trilogy, is also a member of the writing team.
NON Mi Uccidere is being produced by Vivo Film, a Rome-based indie that has produced films such as Laura Bispuri's 'Sworn Virgin,' Susanna Nicchiarelli's 'Nico, 1988,' and the upcoming 'Siberia' on the festival circuit.
