Stevan Mena's feature film debut, MALEVOLENCE, became a surprise hit when it released theatrically and on DVD. Written, co-produced and directed by Stevan, MALEVOLENCE told the shocking but enthralling story of masked serial killer Martin Bristol, whose story hit a nerve with horror fans and mainstream audiences all over the world. Intended as the second act of a sprawling trilogy, fans were rewarded in 2011 when Stevan explored the origins of Martin’s tragic creation with BEREAVEMENT starring Michael Biehn and Alexandra Daddario. Now, the final suspenseful chapter is about to be told…and they need your help.
Mena Films announced today the launch of their Kickstarter page to start production of MALEVOLENCE 3. Once again, Stevan Mena is writing, directing and producing, along with longtime co-producer Tim Bristol and producer/actor Brian O’Halloran (CLERKS). Through Kickstarter, fans can contribute funds towards commencing principal photography – even pre-ordering the Blu-ray/DVD! In addition, fans who commit targeted minimum pledge amounts will be eligible for exclusive incentives including signed scripts, tickets to the premiere party, a Skype session with the cast and filmmakers – and a chance to appear in the film! The MALEVOLENCE 3 IndieGoGo page can be found HERE.
In MALEVOLENCE 3, Martin Bristol returns to where it all began: the home where he was kidnapped from. But he is not the boy who disappeared over 10 years ago. Tortured and abused at the hands of his psychotic captor, Graham Sutter, Martin is damaged beyond repair. Lurking in the shadows of suburbia, he stalks and kills without remorse, picking his victims at random - or are they? Special Agent William Perkins follows Martin’s trail of terror, desperate to capture him before he kills again. Martin’s family, mourning his disappearance for over 10 years, is informed not only that he is alive, but that he is responsible for the wave of murder sweeping through their town. Will they be able to reunite with their long lost son before it’s too late, or will Perkins have to use excessive force to bring him down?
