Watch Me Kill was filmed in Pampangga, Zambales and parts of Manila.
Watch Me Kill received majority positive reviews from critics citing "the film’s grainy, retro look gives it a ragged edge with an early Mad Max feel to it as further punctuated by the equally topnotch production design. The influence of classic filmmakers like Sam Peckinpah and, to a certain extent, Quentin Tarantino is also quite evident..." Film Critic Rod Magaru notes "Acierto’s attempt to action movie succeeded when he decided not to overkill the main character. While it is very hard to create such a protagonist in an action film, he managed to deliver Luciana’s (Jean Garcia) character into the wild. Jean Garcia on the other hand will surely pass as action heroine with her subtle acquisition of the character that consumes her naturally".
Watch Me Kill will compete in 35th Warsaw Film Festival to be held on October 11-20, 2019 in the Free Spirit Category.
