During one of my many boredom-fuelled Facebook perusals I stumbled upon this upcoming indie flick which immediately grabbed my attention with its artwork and title looking and sounding reminiscent of an 80s slasher.

Remember how amazing the first two PICKAXE movies were? No of course you don't because they never existed. Despite that fact THE PICKAXE MURDERS PART III is on it's way and so far I'm getting a really neat throwback vibe which is reminding me of such 1980s gems as MY BLOODY VALENTINE and FRIDAY THE 13TH.
Written, directed and produced by Jeremy Sumrall (STAY WITH ME) the film has only recently been casting and so far Keefer Barlow (HARVESTER OF TERROR 2: REDNECK'S REVENGE), Amy Rene Horch LaFavers (SWEATSHOP) and Tracy Collins are on board. Read on for the plot details and some sweet artwork from Sadist Art Designs and don't forget to check out and 'like' the film's official Facebook page for further updates.

Synopsis: "In the summer of 1982, a group of campers was horribly slaughtered at Camp Arapaho in the sleepy little town of Woodland Hills. The 10 gruesome murders were blamed on Alex Black, a mysterious man believed to have been the son of Satan himself, whom the townspeople had hunted down and lynched nearly 20 years prior. A young woman named Adrienne was able to defeat Alex and put a stop to the killing spree.

One year later, a series of mysterious killings at the Meadow Falls Sanitarium (where Adrienne had spent the last year as a patient) was once again linked to the mysterious Alex Black. Twenty patients and staff members were horribly slaughtered in increasingly graphic and brutal ways. In the end, a young man named George Miner, along with Adrienne, was able to defeat Alex Black, sending him back to the foul hell from whence he came.

For five years, Alex Black has been silent, and the town of Woodland Hills has been peaceful. However, tonight is the night of the death moon, and someone has found a way to bring Alex Black back to life...

...and Alex will not stop until he paints the town blood red"
