It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Stevan Mena, director of the throwback horror film Malevolence (review) which Anchor Bay used as their first theatrical release before it’s big push on DVD. Last we heard Mena was working on a sequel/prequel to his horror tale of a sack-headed killer, but apparently he decided to try something a little different for his sophomore effort.
Icons of Fright got the exclusive first word on Mena’s latest, Brutal Massacre, a horror/comedy that stars David Naughton (An American Werewolf in London) as Harry Penderecki, director of a slew of famous 80’s horror films who’s looking to make a return to the mainstream with Brutal Massacre. Things don’t go so well, however.
That, sadly, is all we know about the plot for now, but we can tell you that Brian O’Halloran (Dante from both Clerks films), Ken Foree (The Devil’s Rejects) and Gunnar Hansen (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) co-star. From the trailer it looks like someone finally cast Hansen in a funny role, something I’m sure he’s been waiting a long time for.
Check out the official Brutal Massacre site for the film’s trailer, then head on over to its MySpace page for a massive amount of stills. No word on when or where we can see the film, but I’m guessing its’ festival-bound now that it’s done. Keep it here for more as we learn it!
