Third clip from Stevan Mena’s Bereavement goes a bit darker and becomes very unsettling…

Our very own Ross Hughes interviewed director Stevan Mena a little while back, and the thought that someone so charming and pleasant could make something quite like this sometimes feels a bit wrong, and I mean that in a very good way! If you have not seen Mena’s Malevolence, then I suggest you do it right away! For starters, you wo’t be able to follow Bereavement as this is a prequel to the events that unfold in Malevolence, a classic in the horror genre.

This new clip, which you can view after the synopsis, shows a girl about to be tortured, but with the Father figure trying to force the young boy to do the deed. Its a clip that will get under your skin and unsettle as it is clear the poor boys innocence is being stripped away. This new clip can be added to the trailer and previous clips we have covered which you can view here

Here is the synopsis:

The highly-anticipated prequel to the 2005 cult hit Malevolence, Bereavement stars Michael Biehn (Terminator, Aliens, The Abyss, The Rock, Tombstone), John Savage (The Deer Hunter, The Godfather Part III, Hair, The Thin Red Line, Do The Right Thing), Alexandra Daddario (Hall Pass, Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, “White Collar”), and Brett Rickaby (The Crazies, The Assassination of Richard Nixon).

In 1989, six-year-old Martin Bristol (Spencer List) was kidnapped from his backyard swing in Minersville, PA. Graham Sutter (Rickaby), a psychotic recluse, kept Martin imprisoned on his derelict pig farm, forcing him to witness and participate in unspeakable horrors. Chosen at random, his victim’s screams were drowned out by the rural countryside.

Martin’s whereabouts would have remained a mystery, until 17-year-old Allison Miller (Daddario) comes to live with her Uncle Jonathan (Biehn). While exploring her new surroundings, Allison discovers things aren’t quiet at the farmhouse down the road. What started as an innocent exercise in satisfying her curiosity will soon disturb a hornet’s nest of evil and despair. For everyone involved, there can only be two outcomes: bereavement or death!


The film will hit DVD & Bluray in the US August 30th. Sadly we are still waiting for release news here in the UK.

A 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.

  1. The six year old Martin Bristol (in this scene) is actually actor Chase Pechacek. Spencer is the boy at 10 years old.
