Chiller TV’s Slasher Trailer Introduces The Executioner


Chiller TV’s first original series, “Slasher,” is getting set to carve out its audience on Friday, March 4th, at 9/8c with a double-episode premiere; and right now we have the trailer and more.

Katie McGrath (Jurassic World, “Dracula,” “Merlin”) stars as Sarah Bennett, a young woman who returns to the small town where she was born, only to find herself the centerpiece in a series of horrifying copycat murders based on the widely known grisly killings of her parents. Sarah finds herself questioning everything and everyone around her, including her husband, Dylan (Brandon Jay McLaren; “Graceland,” “The Killing”); her grandmother, Brenda Merritt (Wendy Crewson; “Saving Hope,” “Revenge”); family friend Cam Henry (Steve Byers; “The Man in the High Castle”); and the town’s police chief, Iain Vaughn (Dean McDermott; “Ecstasy,” “CSI”).

Additional cast members include Mary Walsh (This Hour Has 22 Minutes), Enuka Okuma (“Rookie Blue”), Erin Karpluk (“Being Erica”), Patrick Garrow (“Hannibal,” “Bitten”), Christopher Jacot (Rogue), Mayko Nguyen (“Killjoys,” “Rookie Blue”), Rob Stewart (“Killjoys,” “Suits”), Hannah Endicott-Douglas (“Good Witch”), Shawn Ahmed (“MsLabelled,” “Paranormal Investigators”), Jessica Sipos (“Dark Matter,” “Ascension”), Jefferson Brown (“Rookie Blue,” “Being Erica”), Mark Ghanimé (“Reign,” “Helix”), Dylan Taylor (Rogue, “Covert Affairs”), Booth Savage (Mr. D.), Victoria Snow (Cra$h & Burn), Sabrina Grdevich (“Skins”), and Rainbow Sun Francks (The Listener).

Developed and produced by Shaftesbury in association with Super Channel and Chiller, “Slasher” is written and created by Aaron Martin (“Killjoys,” “Being Erica”) and directed by Craig David Wallace (“Todd and the Book of Pure Evil”).

Thirty years ago, in the sleepy community of Waterbury, a killer known as “The Executioner” murdered Sarah Bennett’s parents. Now Sarah and her husband, Dylan, have returned to town, only to find herself the centerpiece in a series of horrifying murders centered around the seven deadly sins. It seems “The Executioner” is back. But if Tom Winston – the original Executioner – is behind bars, who is the new person behind the mask? As the murders escalate, long-buried secrets are revealed, making everyone around Sarah a suspect… or a victim.
