Adam Green has done an admirable job trying to keep slasher films relevant with Hatchet and Hatchet II, but, hopefully director Eric England is going to help with his upcoming Madison County.
While looking a little derivative of, oh, almost every slasher movie ever made, Madison County looks mostly like Friday the 13th mixed with Texas Chainsaw Massacre with a nod to The Omen by naming it's pig-masked killer "Damien." Check out the synopsis and trailer below.
A group of college kids travel to a small, mountain town called Madison County to interview the author of a tell-all book on the accounts of several grisly murders that happened there. But when the kids get to Madison County, the author is no where to be found and the towns people act like they haven't seen him in years. They also say that the killer never existed and the murders never happened. However, when the kids start digging around to get their own answers, they find out that the stories maybe more real than the townspeople are letting on!
Madison County opens April 15 and stars Nick Principe, Ace Marrero, and Colley Bailey.
