Amanda Bynes wants to kill her parents.

The 28-year-old actress has been recorded on tape by one of her roommates saying she dreams of murdering her dad, slitting her mother's wrist and then burning down their house.

Amanda - who has had no fixed abode since leaving a psychiatric hospital last month - can be heard saying: ''I don't want to shoot my father in the face, and that's why I said I want to like strip for him as a joke.

''I want to literally like lead him into a ditch and ... I have't decided how I'd want to murder him, because now I have like this war wound on my face, and I don't believe in murder. Nothing would give me greater pleasure than like, slitting his throat.

''So like I'm not gonna like ever do such a thing, but like I call my mom and like I threaten to like to kill her and I threaten to slit her wrist, and I threaten to like burn down her house.

''I'm gonna continue telling you guys I'm gonna murder my family, like 'cause that's the thing that like they're in control of my money and that's why I don't have much money right now.''

Rick and Lynn Bynes have a conservatorship over the actress, but are reportedly keen to step down so they can rebuild their relationship.

Meanwhile, TMZ claims Amanda's family members wanted the tapes released because they might act as ''wake-up call for medical professionals to intervene and get her help''.
