Here we have the trailer for The Axe Murders Of Villisca, which is headed our way at the end of January courtesy the good folks at IFC Midnight.
What good timing, too: we were literally just talking about how you don't see enough axe murders on film anymore, and in walks the Axe Murders Of Villisca trailer, delivering a double axe murder (we assume) before the title's even hit the screen.
Check it out:
In case you're not clear on what's happening here, please enjoy the following plot synopsis:
On a June night in 1912, eight people—a mother, father, their four children, and two guests—were murdered by an axe-wielding killer in the sleepy town of Villisca, Iowa, a case that remains unsolved to this day. 104 years later, Caleb (Robert Adamson) and Denny (Jarrett Sleeper), two friends who share an interest in ghost hunting, along with Jess (Alex Frnka), the new girl in school who’s already got a reputation, sneak into the house where the infamous bloodbath occurred in hopes of recording paranormal activity. What the trio encounters is far more horrifying than anything they could have imagined. A century after the shocking crime that put Villisca on the map, a supernatural force is waiting to write the next chapter in the home’s bloody history.
The Axe Murders Of Villisca, directed by Tony Valenzuela and written by Follow's Owen Egerton, will arrive on January 20th, 2017. Stay tuned for more on this one as it becomes available.
