The Turnpike Killer Is Coming For You

2010's The Super was without a doubt one of my favorite films from that year. It was sleazy, grimy and violent as it follows the occupants of a New York City apartment block. Now the writing/directing team of Evan Makrogiannis and Brian Weaver are back with The Turnpike Killer which, if the trailer is anything to go by, looks to follow in the violent tradition of The Super.

The movie is set for a June 22 release and will be available in a big box vhs edition (which includes the DVD). Full artwork, extras, synopsis and trailer below.

To pre-order THE TURNPIKE KILLER for the slashed down price of $24.99 reduced from street price of $29.99 visit here.

Over a span of ten years the butchered remains of New York City women have been found dumped along the New Jersey Turnpike. The sadistic fiend behind these horrid murders has been coined "The Turnpike Killer". His search for the "chosen one" has left a seemingly endless trail of bloodshed and brutality. NYPD Homicide Detective Lloyd is on the job but still,"The Turnpike Killer" evades capture. Keep off the streets at night,  stay out of the tunnels and avoid the bridges. You cannot escape him when all roads lead to death.
Bill McLaughlin is terrifying as the brutal Jon Beest, the madman known as "The Turnpike Killer". Joined by a stellar cast that includes Edgar Moye (The Super) as "Detective Lloyd", Demetri Kallas (The Super) as "Father", Lyndsey Brown as "Jennifer" and horror icons Ruby LaRocca (The Lost) and Manoush (Barricade), "The Turnpike Killer" is sure to appease the blood lust of hardcore fans of 1980's horror/exploitation.

The trailer makes it look like an unwatchable pile of amateurish dog-shit.

I agree, Phantom, it looks top notch. These guys seem to really capture that old school sleazy NYC feel in their flicks.

Love the found footage trailer that was shot on VHS. This looks like an awesome release that will bring back some good old time feeling. I heard these guys other film The SUper was sick.
