Filthy Flashback - Malevolence

With Stevan Mena's Bereavement hitting DVD and Blu-ray today (go and buy it!) I thought I would post a short piece about its predecessor Malevolence. Considering it was released by Anchor Bay, back in 2005, finding a decent trailer was surprisingly difficult. They are out there but the quality of the videos were not great. Anyway, Starz have finally gotten their collective fingers out of their asses and posted up the full 3 1/2 intro to this cracking movie. Even though Bereavement is the prequel to Malevolence I really recommend watching the movies in the order they were released, believe me they work better that way. Then we can all wait patiently for the third movie in the saga to get made, and yes it is happening.

It's ten years after the kidnapping of Martin Bristol. Taken from a backyard swing at his home at the age of six, he is forced to witness unspeakable crimes of a deranged madman. For years, Martin's whereabouts have remained a mystery...until now.

Created as the middle section of a three-part trilogy, 'Malevolence' is the tragic story of a group of bank robbers on the run from the law. They hide out in an abandoned house on the outskirts of town, unaware it is next door to the home of a family of serial killers. One of their hostages escapes and runs for help, but all hell breaks loose when she runs to the "wrong" house.
