Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
Stevan Mena's Malevolence trilogy will close out with Killer aka Malevolence 3: Killer. This third film follows Malevolence (2003) and Bereavement (2010); Bereavement was a prequel to Malevolence. Production on this third film was held up, due to the tragic death of actor Scott Decker. However, Killer is expected to release this October, on home entertainment platforms. The film's poster artwork and release trailer are hosted here.

This indie film fan remembers hearing of some of the difficulties behind this third production. Director Mena has stated earlier about this title and the challenges of its completion: "it was difficult to continue after Scott’s tragic death." Though, the show must go on as they say. Mena finished with: "but so many good people worked very hard on this film...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 (Dread Central)." Some of these performances can be seen in the film's early promotional material, found here.

The story of Killer focuses on a psychologically tortured young man. Martin Bristol returns to where a kidnapping led to years of confinement. On the run from authorities, Martin reflects on the tragedies that haunt him, from so many years ago. Is it too late for Martin to halt his path of destruction?

Killer will be released on October 12th. On this date, the film will be available on: Digital platforms, DVD and Blu-ray. The first two films are excellent examples of indie horror. And, this third film should not be missed this Halloween season. The trailer, for Killer (Malevolence 3: Killer), is below.

Release Date: October 12th, 2018 (Digital, DVD, and Blu-ray).
