Kill Me Again is a 1989 film noir modelled on the classic films of the 1940s. A down on his luck private investigator owes money to some nasty loan sharks, which he is unable to repay. The loan sharks rough him up, and make it clear worse will happen if he doesn't repay on time. A beautiful woman enters his office and offers to pay him $10,000 if he will fake her death and give her a new identity. She claims she needs it to escape her abusive boyfriend. The private investigator doesn't believe her, but he needs that money, and besides he really likes this kind of client. Of course, things turn out to be much more complicated, for both of them.
