There’s memorable madness going on in the upcoming pseudo-sequel.

Dark Star Pictures and Bloody Disgusting will release DEMENTIA PART II to theaters May 21 and VOD, digital and DVD June 1. A follow-up to Mike Testin’s 2015 film DEMENTIA with different characters, it was written, produced and directed by Testin and Mike Mercer, who also stars along with Suzanne Voss, Graham Skipper (ALMOST HUMAN, SEQUENCE BREAK) and Najarra Townsend (CONTRACTED, THE STYLIST). The synopsis: “Wendell [Mercer] receives a threatening phone call from his parole officer Reggie [Skipper]…if he doesn’t find a job immediately, he will face serious legal repercussions. Wendell wrangles some home maintenance work for a seemingly benign older woman, Suzanne [Voss], who persists in giving him increasingly absurd tasks to complete around the house. As the workday progresses, Wendell is thrown into an ever-escalating nightmare, and comes face to face with an unexpected evil. Suzanne hides a dark secret. And it’s up to Wendell and Suzanne’s daughter, Sheila [Townsend] to put an end to her madness.”
