Director Craig Thieman said the film is not really about suicide but rather a dark comedy about a potential serial killer who does not know what he is doing.

Thieman said the film was made possible by the Wilmington community. With their help they raised $40,000 in just 29 days.

Thieman could not be more proud to host a free premiere to give back. He just hopes everyone enjoys the film.

“There’s things that you remember that you’re like, you know, I really dug that you know? And you remember it later and I think this is one of those films,” Thieman said. “We put a lot of those little tiny things into it like I think it has good re-watch value, and you know it’s supposed to be a fun movie. You know, if you go into it liking dark comedies you’re gonna like this movie.”

“Suicide for Beginners” premieres Thursday at 7 p.m. at Thalian Hall.
