Nothing is slowing down Steven Mena from getting Bereavement released. This is the prequel to Malevolence and Steven has always intended for that film to be part of a trilogy. Making good on that promise he is releasing the prequel March 4th. Bereavement made news recently when the MPAA pulled the poster for this film because it depicted a child holding a weapon. The MPAA is always hating on independent films so don’t expect it to end there. For now though enjoy this nice addition to the slasher genre and check out the trailer below. It’s an excellent trailer that has gotten me very interested in this prequel.
Synopsis: In 1989, six year old Martin Bristoll was kidnapped from his backyard swing in Minersville Pennsylvania. Graham Sutter, a psychotic recluse, kept Martin imprisoned on his derelict pig farm, forcing him to witness and participate in unspeakable horrors. Chosen at random, his victim’s screams were drowned out by the rural countryside. For five years, Martin’s whereabouts have remained a mystery, until 17 year old Allison Miller (Alexandra Daddario) comes to live with her Uncle, Jonathan (Michael Biehn). While exploring her new surroundings, Allison discovers things aren’t quite right at the farmhouse down the road. Her curiosity disturbs a hornet’s nest of evil and despair that once torn open, can never be closed.
