It’s been a bit since the first news about Axeman II but today we have our first look at the film proper. Check out the teaser below and you’ll see that this film means business…
From the Press Release:
Filmmaker Joston “El Rey” Theney of production company #SinningWorks announces the official release of the teaser for the highly anticipated sequel to 2014’s AXEMAN, titled AXEMAN II: OVERKILL. The film stars MTV “Teen Mom” Farrah Abraham, CBS “Big Brother” winner Rachel Reilly, “Baywatch” alum Angelica Bridges and WWE’s Bryan “Adam Bomb” Clark.
“The film’s been done for about a year and a half,” says El Rey when asked what the hold-up has been. “There’s been a lot of behind the scenes nonsense but regardless of the outcome, you will see the film this winter whether it’s their release or mine. We have some incredibly awesome fans and diehard gore-hounds that have been following the release news religiously and my goal since the beginning has been to satisfy them. They’re the reason I make the AXEMAN films.”
Production stills released along with the trailer reveal additional characters not shown previously. With 27 speaking roles in the film, what separates this film from the original other than the number of characters? “The difference between this film and the original is the sheer abundance of talent and outlandish characters. Each character and actor could carry their own film,” Theney says. “Without revealing too much, ‘Mrs. Whitfield’ played by the talented Monique Parent holds the key to understanding why the Axeman is back and how to stop him but she has her own reasons for not divulging it. Michael Foster is ‘Polk Talbert,’ the original suspect believed to have given the Axeman legend it’s bloody beginnings. And ‘Kesha’ played by Hannah Landberg will definitely be a fan favorite as the sister to one of the victims from the original film who is probably more savage and frightening that the Axeman himself.”
Synopsis: When a band of crazed evangelicals, bank robbers and vigilantes descend upon Cutter’s Creek, there’s only one local legend that can separate them. And dismember them.
