Thom Mathews Returns to the Screen in ‘Killer Therapy’

Rellik Pictures has released the first look at Barry Jay’s Killer Therapy. This is the latest scream from the director of Ashes and executive producer of Never Hike Alone. Check out all the details down below including stills, production, and more.

Killer Therapy

For his second feature, Jay enlisted the talents of genre legend Thom Mathews as the family patriarch.  After early appearances in Return of the Living Dead and as long-time Jason foe Tommy Jarvis in the Friday the 13th franchise, Mathews has stepped away from narrative roles in recent years, appearing at conventions and in documentaries.

“On returning to a leading role in the genre, Mathews said, “I’m very excited to bring Barry Jay & Andrew Krop’s script Killer Therapy to life. After meeting with Barry and reading the script, I knew I wanted to bring this character to the screen because it brought me back to my horror roots. I always try to find the humanity in every role and I have a bloody good role as John Langston. Killer Therapy is a complex story and I enjoyed going to the set every day.”

The film also stars a number of horror legends, established stars and rising talents, including PJ Soles (Halloween, Carrie), Adrienne King (Friday the 13th), Daeg Faerch (Rob Zombie’s Halloween), Elizabeth Keener (“The L Word”), Ivy George (“Big Little Lies”) and introducing Michael Qeliqi as Brian.

Synopsis for Killer Therapy

Brian is a disturbed child with sociopathic tendencies dealing with a father who doesn’t love him, a mother unconvinced of his violent nature, and a newly adopted sister he believes is there to replace him. After a series of escalating violent incidents, he is bounced around from failed therapist to failed therapist, maturing into a young man still unable to escape his anger issues.

When his life eventually falls apart by his own choices, Brian blames his series of failed therapists, embracing his dark nature and taking his revenge on everyone who ever wronged him – one by one, finally understanding that accepting who you are inside can be the best therapy.

Killer Therapy

Killer Therapy is currently in post-production and is expected to premiere on the film festival circuit in the coming months.
