Fans of 80’s slasher films and the new films inspired by them can rejoice as#SinningWorks and filmmakerJoston “El Rey” Theneyhave announced a release date for their project,Axeman At Cutter’s Creek.
The film stars veterans such as Tiffany Shepis (Victor Crowley) and Brinke Stevens (The Slumber Party Massacre). Other names gracing the credits include Elissa Dowling (Girl on the Third Floor), Jamie Bernadette (I Spit on Your Grave: Deja Vu), Erin Maria Hogan (Hold Your Breath) and NBA star Scot Pollard.
If this legend sounds familiar, it may be because you have heard its previous title, Axeman. Axeman At Cutter’s Creek will serve as a reboot to the franchise. When asked about his film, Theney had this to say,
“Axeman was a fun movie to make and I’m so appreciative of the super supportive fanbase. But, to no fault of the cast and crew, it got rushed and we never really put our movie’s best foot forward. This one’ll include never-before-seen footage and a slicker, faster 80 minute run-time”
“What really killed me was not wrapping up the film as originally intended. It was envisioned as a trilogy from the outset and the ending we were forced to go with painted us into a corner. But this release of Axeman At Cutter’s Creek course-corrects the ship and is our first step to putting us on a path to finishing the franchise strong.”
Axeman At Cutter’s Creek will be released to major VOD platforms May 7, 2021. Review coming soon.
