SLASHER SEASON 1 - Coming from Chiller TV to Scream Factory July 12th

New release coming this July from Scream Factory and Chiller will be Slasher, Season 1. This is an original series out of Canada of which I am not yet all too familiar, but will have a review up in late June/early July. The cast has some Horror roots with Katie McGrath appearing in Jurassic World and Dracula. This one has all the hallmarks of some of the more popular shows we've been seeing out of the US lately although I must admit that TV shows outside of The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Better Call Saul and Billions may be out of my viewing knowledge. Reviewing has a price, and that price is watching every new TV show the networks put out.

This summer, venture into the town of Waterbury with Sarah, a young woman who returns to where she was born, only to find herself the centerpiece in a series of horrifying copycat murders based on the grisly killings of her parents. As the murders escalate, long-buried secrets are revealed, making everyone around her a suspect…or a victim. The thrilling first season of Chiller’s original hit series SLASHER – which recently concluded its run on-air this Spring - stars Katie McGrath (Jurassic World, Dracula, Merlin), Brandon Jay McLaren (Chicago Fire, Graceland, The Killing), Steve Byers (The Man in the High Castle, Alphas, Smallville), Dean McDermott (Ecstasy, CSI) and Wendy Crewson (Saving Hope, Revenge).

On July 12, 2016, SCREAM FACTORY™ will release SLASHER: SEASON ONE on Blu-ray and DVD.  A must-have for horror enthusiasts, this eerily terrifying series features a generous dose of suspense and blood-curdling violence. Both the Blu-ray and DVD will include a behind-the-scenes featurette.

Synopsis: Thirty years ago, in the sleepy community of Waterbury, a killer known as "The Executioner" murdered Sarah Bennett's parents. Now Sarah (Katie McGrath) and her husband Dylan (Brandon Jay McLaren) have returned to town, only to find herself the centerpiece in a series of horrifying murders centered around the seven deadly sins. It seems "The Executioner" is back. But if Tom Winston - the original Executioner - is behind bars, who is the new person behind the mask? As the murders escalate, long-buried secrets are revealed, making everyone around Sarah a suspect…or a victim.
