Long time readers of HCF, will know our love for MaleVolence, a 2003 slasher film that was soooooooooo good that we actually managed to interview the very likeable director Stevan Mena, who followed up the underrated horror, with the even more underrated sequel BereaVement in 2010.
Well, finally we will get to see the closure of the set of films, involving the brutal killer Martin as MaleVolence 3: Killer is set to be released in October this year.
The sequel was originally cancelled due to the sad and tragic death of lead actor Scott Decker, and Mena, has told ARROW TO THE HEAD, that, the long awaited follow up is coming.
“It was difficult to continue after Scott’s tragic death,” Mena told the site. “But so many good people worked very hard on this film. I needed to somehow find a way to finish it. Through some creative rewrites, additional casting, and the crew agreeing to take a deferred salary, we were able to not only complete the picture but even retain some of Scott’s great performance as well.”
MaleVolence 3: KILLER, will immediately after the events of the first film, the new sequel sets Martin loose on suburbia. It stars Katie Gibson, Adrienne Barbeau, and Kevin McKelvy. Malevolence 3: Killer hits theatres and VOD, DVD, and Blu-ray this October.
Kidnapped, tortured, and abused at the hands of his psychotic captor, Graham Sutter, Martin Bristol knows only one thing – murder. On the run, lurking in the shadows of suburbia, he stalks and kills without remorse. Special Agent William Perkins follows Martin’s trail of terror, desperate to capture him before he kills again. Martin’s family, mourning his disappearance for over 10 years, is informed that not only is he still alive, he’s responsible for the wave of murder sweeping through their town. Will they be able to reunite with their long lost son before it’s too late, or will Perkins have no choice but to use excessive force to bring Martin down?
We can’t wait!
