coming back this summer in a new “Killer Cut” sporting a number of upgrades.
Messitt got in touch with news on the limited theatrical run and details of the
Scripted by Mark Garbett and Messitt and starring Rebekah
Brandes (soon to be seen in Evan Glodell’s genre-blending festival favorite
BELLFLOWER), Daniel Bonjour, Greg Cirulnick, Mandell Maughan and Stan

stalk and slay his audience. “The Killer Cut” offers extended and
never-before-seen scenes, plus new, enhanced visual FX. It has its world

screenings can be ordered here.

DVD June 14, though a limited number of advance copies will be available at the
Crest screenings (with a cast and crew signing after the premiere). The disc
will present the movie in 16x9-enhanced widescreen with Dolby 5.1 Surround and
