‘The Evangelist’ is a Bible-quoting Serial Killer

ITN Distribution has acquired the rights to worldwide distribution for the psychological thriller The Evangelist with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and eOne Entertainment releasing the film in the US & Canada on May 9, 2017.

Enter the sadistic world of The Evangelist, a bible-quoting serial killer who has a small NJ town gripped with fear. Is he the same maniac from the past continuing his moral cleansing or a new, merciless angel of death.

“The Evangelist” tells the story of Bill Horton (Collins) who at seven years old watched in horror as a serial killer murdered his mother. Known as The Evangelist, he places a bible next to her body and quotes scripture as he leaves Bill alone and destroyed. Thirty years later, Bill has grown up and appears to be a model citizen, spending his days cleaning his house and baking. He has, however, picked up the mantle of the Evangelist, killing those who he finds wicked and evil and leaving a bible by their bodies. Bill only opens up to Dr. Laura Cooper (Artese), a psychiatrist, who discovers Bill’s dark secret. She contacts young Detective Edward Legros (Billy) who is working on the case with his cynical, veteran partner, Detective John Vance (Bollinger). But what Vance knows about the original Evangelist will lead to a bloody showdown.

Keith Collins (“The Meat Puppet”,”The Jersey Devil”), Doug Bollinger (“Waltzing Anna”), Samantha Artese (“The Coffee Shop”), Michael BIlly (“The One”) star in the film directed by Joseph Pepitone.



  • Why do movies always portray Christians in a negative light? Most times they are portrayed as wack jobs? Brain washed comments follow……

    • Because it’s always okay to make fun of, Christians, Hillbillys and people who live in trailer parks. They only want to be politically correct when it’s something they like.

      Well, I mean they did give the Christians a shot at portraying themselves but then you get a movie like “God’s Not Dead”. Annnnnd yup, there it was. I just threw up in my mouth a bit.

      • like I said brainwashed comments follow

    • Blood Boil

      Because they mostly are wack jobs. I wish they portrayed members of all religions as cult worshiping, self-righteous, brainwashed drones. Also the bible wasn’t all hugs and rainbows either

      • How many Christians have you met who were like the mother in Carrie?

        • Blood Boil

          Too many too count

          • yeah and all democrats are the same too


      Probably because it’s fairly common for a conversation with a religious person to devolve into some social political nonsense about mussies or fags. Now that’s not all religious people or every conversation, but enough that most people have encountered a kook atleast once or twice.

    Thumbs up, especially since this is less traveled plot territory. Reminds me of that Amish slasher that came out a couple years ago. I forget that name of that one…

  • sliceanddice

    bible john anyone?

  • Vesuvian Villain

    Oh wow. So it’s like Seven, except not good at all.

    Maybe I’m being harsh. {Watches Preview Again} Nope!

  • I was worried reading the post as I’ve been working on a similarly themed project. Thankfully, after watching the trailer, I’d say there’s little in common.

  • yes salvation
