A trailer has landed for director Joston Theney’s sequel to his 2013 slasher Axeman, entitled Axeman II: Overkill, and it doesn’t hold back on the good stuff. Production company #SinningWorks has put the trailer out along with these stills for the film, which is due to arrive sometime late this year.
“The film’s been done for about a year and a half,” Theney explains in the film’s press release, hinting that industry politics are responsible for the hold up in delivering the sequel. “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.”
The film stars MTV ‘Teen Mom’ Farrah Abraham in her film debut, Baywatch’s Angelica Bridges, horror regular Maria Olsen (Starry Eyes, Paranormal Activity 3) and WWE’s Bryan E. Clark as the titular killer.
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.
