The Hexecutioners is headed to the American Film Market (AFM) and brings together the amazing talents of director Jesse Thomas Cook (Septic Man, Monster Brawl), and writer Tony Burgess (Hellmouth, Pontypool, Septic Man).

The first rather brilliant trailer has just arrived as the film heads to AFM looking for buyers. On the evidence on what you will see below, I am sire you’ll agree that this horror film will have no trouble finding a distribution deal.

The Press Release:

From Canadian independent genre studio Foresight Features, director Jesse Thomas Cook (Septic Man, Monster Brawl), and the permanently damaged mind of Tony Burgess (Pontypool, Ejecta), comes The Hexecutioners. The sixth film in the Foresight Features slate is a euthanasia-themed occult haunter that wrapped production in early May.

The film will be introduced to international distributors at AFM. It stars newcomer Liv Collins, Sarah Power (Repo! The Genetic Opera, “Killjoys”), and Tim Burd (Saw II, Septic Man) along with a list of character roles from Ari Millen (“Orphan Black”), Barry Flatman (“Fargo,” The Dead Zone), Boyd Banks (Dawn of the Dead, Hellmouth), and Walter Borden (Gerontophilia).


Three years ago Proposition 117 was passed, allowing private medical films to conduct assisted suicide procedures. Two disparate young women working for a Rite-to-Die company are dispatched to a remote estate to perform a custom euthanasia ritual, but they unwittingly summon the spirits of a death cult that once inhabited the property.

Matt WavishA keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
