lady killersDean Haglund and Phil Leirness are in pre-production on the second feature film for
Rational Exuberance.
THE LADY KILLERS is a dark comedy focusing on a game of romantic conquest gone

Cinequest). THE LADY KILLERS will be the seventh feature film he has directed.
Leirness is also a California state certified Violence Prevention Specialist.

one of those dark comedies (like HEATHERS and A CLOCKWORK ORANGE) that
continues to resonate, disturb and delight audiences for many years after its initial
Dean Haglund founded Rational Exuberance to tell stories that explore the mystery. He
and Leirness are committed to asking questions about what it means to be human.
Their first effort under the Rational Exuberance banner was the epic documentary THE
TRUTH IS OUT THERE. Equal parts comedy, consciousness and conspiracy, the film
has been called “Insightful and entertaining” (Richard Propes, The Independent Critic),
“Magnetic and addictive” (Denise R. Levien, The Rogers Revue) and “a true
masterpiece” (R.C. Samo, Fanboy Nation).
Together, Haglund and Leirness also co-host Chillpak Hollywood Hour
(, a free weekly podcast that is about to enter its seventh

and Succotash.
