From the Press Release:

Pre-orders are now open for The Evangelist, and you can learn more on the film’s Facebook page. Just remember: Your sins are not forgiven!

The Evangelist tells the story of Bill Horton (Collins), who at seven years old watched in horror as a serial killer murdered his mother. Known as The Evangelist, he placed a Bible next to her body and quoted scripture as he left Bill alone and destroyed.

Thirty years later, Bill has grown up and appears to be a model citizen, spending his days cleaning his house and baking. He has, however, picked up the mantle of The Evangelist, killing those he finds wicked and evil and leaving a Bible by their bodies. Bill only opens up to Dr. Laura Cooper (Artese), a psychiatrist who discovers Bill’s dark secret. She contacts young Detective Edward Legros (Billy), who is working on the case with his cynical, veteran partner, Detective John Vance (Bollinger). But what Vance knows about the original Evangelist will lead to a bloody showdown.
