A new gorefest featuring a weapon-wielding funnyman is currently in the works, and we’ve got an exclusive first look at the poster and a few pics.

MURDERSHOW, directed by Dan Walton and Dan Zachary from a script by Zachary, is in the midst of shooting and targeting a release at Halloween 2020. The cast is headed by James Duval (DONNIE DARKO), Jason Lively (NIGHT OF THE CREEPS), Roy Campsall as the sadistic Dollmaker, Kimi Alexander, Mackenzie Mowat, Kurt Teixeira, Zachary as Sheriff Bleaker and Scott Gueulette as Gnarly the Clown. The synopsis: “A journalist’s search for clues leading to his sister’s disappearance lands him on a disturbing hidden website deep inside the dark web called MURDERSHOW, where people can bid using crypto currencies on the deaths of unwilling participants. Unfortunately for him, when he finds the website he becomes the target of the twisted psychopaths that run it.” Stay tuned for updates!
