Marcus Miller is a bad man. The newest cold-blooded (and I mean cold-blooded; this is guy is batshit crazy!) killer to hit the silver screen is the star of Matt Farnsworth’s violent new film The Orphan Killer. And he doesn’t fuck around.
As you’ll see by the trailer below, The Orphan Killer is a very Halloween-esque film. But if you’re going to model yourself after something, why not one of the most successful independent films of all time?
So what do we know about this new slasher, Marcus Miller? Just judging by the trailer, he’s really, really brutal. I would make the argument that he swings an axe with as much aggression and bad intentions as anyone I’ve ever seen (but I think that nun had it coming).
The Orphan Killer was written and directed by Matt Farnsworth (he also plays Mike in the film) and stars David Backus as Miller. Also featured are Diane Foster, James McCaffrey, John Savage and Karen Young. Check out The Orphan Killer Facebook page, which is currently pushing 100,000 Likes. You go, Marcus Miller!
