Director Eric England is only in his early 20′s but his new slasher, Madison County – which we’ve teased in this extensive exclusive set report – is now set to hit DVD and Digital Download on May 8th!
“Dating back to the fairy tales of Grimm, the woods have always been a place of immense beauty, but also of abject terror. Perhaps it’s the lack of civilization, or not knowing what lurks around the next tree, but sometimes what seems idyllic and bucolic only masks the path to death itself! On May 8th, Image Entertainment presents Madison County on DVD and digital download. Premiered at last year’s prestigious ScreamFest — the only film to sell out during the festival! — and already abuzz with anticipation among genre fans, Madison County promises an excursion into rural terror that pays homage to the original ‘Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ and ‘The Town that Dreaded Sundown’. SRP is $27.97 for the DVD.”
“Madison County is about a group of college kids that travel to a remote, mountain town called Madison County to interview the author of a tell-all book on the accounts of the grisly murders that happened in the town over two decades ago. Upon their arrival, the author is no where to be found and the townspeople state that they’ve “not seen him in years.” They also deny that Damien Ewell, the notorious murderer, ever existed and that the murders never happened. As the kids start to dig around to get their own answers, they come to find that the stories, and Damien, maybe more real than the townspeople are letting on.”
Directed, co-produced and written by Eric England, Madison County stars Ace Marrero (who also co-produced), Colley Bailey, Matt Mercer, Joanna Sotomura, Natalie Scheetz, Katie Stegeman, and Adrienne Harrell, with Laid To Rest’s Nick “ChromeSkull” Principe as the savage killer Damien Ewell.
