Martin Bristol returns in trailer for Malevolence 3: Killer

Malevolence 3: Killer Stevan Mena

Earlier this month, we shared the news that writer/director Stevan Mena has completed his film MALEVOLENCE 3: KILLER, two years after the tragic, mid-production death of lead actor Scott Decker. Now Mena has released a trailer for the film, which is set to reach theatres and VOD/DVD/Blu-ray this October.

Picking up immediately after the events of Mena's 2003 feature debut MALEVOLENCE (the second film in the series, 2010's BEREAVEMENT, was a prequel), MALEVOLENCE 3 sets a slasher loose on suburbia.

Kidnapped, tortured, and abused at the hands of his psychotic captor, Graham Sutter, Martin Bristol knows only one thing - murder. On the run, lurking in the shadows of suburbia, he stalks and kills without remorse. 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 that not only is he still alive, he's 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 no choice but to use excessive force to bring Martin down?

Katie Gibson and Kevin McKelvy star alongside legendary genre regular Adrienne Barbeau - who does make an appearance in the trailer, embedded below.

Mena has explained that he had to modify the script and completely reshoot the majority of the footage with a new cast member after Decker's passing.

It was difficult to continue after Scott's tragic death, but so many good people worked very hard on this film. I needed to somehow find a way to finish it. Through some creative rewrites, additional casting, and the crew agreeing to take deferred salary, we were able to not only complete the picture, but even retain some of Scott's great performance as well."

Judging by the trailer, it looks like the end result will be a darkly entertaining film, and I'm looking forward to it. I'm always in the mood to watch a good slasher.
