Anyone who’s spent any time on this site knows that we love the horror comedy, Massacre On Aisle 12 (2016 – read our review here). We love it so much that we can’t help but be excited by anything filmmakers Jim Klock and Chad Ridgely (read our interview with him here) come up with. We are big fans of 2017’s 6:66PM: Evil Has an Hour to Kill (read our review here) and have brought you exclusive news about Terror Films’ Terrifying Tuesdays, Weedjies: Halloweed Night, Red Letters, Murder Van, and Self Isolated. Now we’re back with even more exciting stuff …. Jim Klock is bringing us a brand new holiday horror flick called Slayed. Jim Klock AND holiday horror? Yes, please!
This is what we know so far, according to the press release:
Successful writer/producer/director Jim Klock (Red Letters, Murder 11) safely wraps principal production on the new horror feature film, Slayed. The film marks the second installment of a three-picture deal between Klock’s Code 3 Films production banner and genre distributor, Terror Films.
Shot entirely on location in Stafford, Virginia, using proper safety protocols and a limited cast and crew, Slayed is described as a cross between The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Silent Night, Deadly Night.
Five years after a Christmas Eve massacre in Harris County, Arizona, a crazed killer returns to the now run down water treatment plant to terrorize and kill again. Only this time, the one lone survivor from that tragic night is waiting to make this Santa-clad monster pay for what he did.
Klock, who recently starred in The 24th, Secrets in the Woods, and Project Power, also stars in the film alongside his co-director/actor, Mike Capozzi (Red Letters, Emmy Award Winning Dark/Web), Kyra Kennedy (Red Letters, Blue Bloods TV series), and Coel Mahal (Don’t Ask Nancy, Interrogations Gone Wrong).
The film is produced by Klock and Darrell Martinelli (Code 3 Films) with executive producer Phil Snow and Terror Films’ Joe Dain, along with co-producers Emily Adams (Red Letters), Marcie Klock, and David Decatur.
