Check out this slasher new horror film has been made that is inspired by the horrific true story of a family and their friends who were viciously murdered in 1912 in the Iowa town of Villisca. It is one larger than life story and just thinking about the story gives me goosebumps.
The Axe Murders of Villisca, and the murder mystery has never been solved. It’s an insane story that would make a great and terrifying horror film. Unfortunately, this movie takes place in the modern day and it centers around some friends who are into ghost hunting. I would appreciate the movie more if it was made in the same period of time the actual killings happened.
On a June night in 1912, eight people—a mother, father, their four children, and two guests—were murdered by an axe-wielding killer in the sleepy town of Villisca, Iowa, a case that remains unsolved to this day. 104 years later, Caleb (Robert Adamson) and Denny (Jarrett Sleeper), two friends who share an interest in ghost hunting, along with Jess (Alex Frnka), the new girl in school who’s already got a reputation, sneak into the house where the infamous bloodbath occurred in hopes of recording paranormal activity. What the trio encounters is far more horrifying than anything they could have imagined. A century after the shocking crime that put Villisca on the map, a supernatural force is waiting to write the next chapter in the home’s bloody history.
The Axe Murders of Villisca will be released on VOD on January 20th, 2017.
