Monday, October 15, 2018 | Exclusive, News


There are SADISTIC INTENTIONS aplenty in a new horror movie featuring THE BATTERY’s Jeremy Gardner and genre mogul Larry Fessenden that makes its world premiere this week. Jump past the jump for the details and exclusive first look at the teaser.

Written and directed by Eric Pennycoff, SADISTIC INTENTIONS makes its debut this Saturday, October 20 at the Knoxville Horror Film Fest in Knoxville, TN, and has its Canadian premiere the same day at Edmonton, Alberta’s DEDfest. Michael Patrick Nicholson and Taylor Zaudtke also star; the synopsis: “A psychotic musician lures a fellow bandmate and an unsuspecting woman to a remote mansion for a night of romantic deceit and grinding metal mayhem.”

“We are incredibly excited to bring SADISTIC INTENTIONS to Knoxville and DEDfest,” Pennycoff tells RUE MORGUE. “Having wrapped production a little over a year ago, it is both frightening and electrifying to know the time has come to unleash this psycho-horror romance thriller upon the earth. It’s an exciting time to make an offbeat genre hybrid—the type of movie that often finds its audience among core festivals. I can only hope, wait and draw my own blood in attempt to summon a similar support.”
