Following the movie’s lead, the four different art variants for the upcoming shocker are red all over.

Genre-oriented sales company Black Mandala has picked up THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE KILLER, which was shot on Australian and Tasmanian locations. Directed by Sam Curtain, who also wrote and produced the film with Benjamin Clarke, it stars Craig Ingham, James Mason, Kristen Condon and Dean Kirkright. The synopsis: “A passion for slaughter keeps Box [Ingham] in line at the local abattoir where he can quench his thirst for blood. When Nathan [Mason], a young parolee, arrives in town, Box is instructed to take him under his wing, and soon the two men bond over a murder. Unable to resist the bloody temptations, the two form a friendship revolving around their sickness for killing. A friendship which is bad news for everyone in town.”
