Looking for something to do or watch on a Halloween Monday? Simon Rex, Danny Trejo, Tom Sizemore, and Jason Mewes have the answer for you with their new film Halloweed.
“Halloweed is a comedy/stoner/slasher/mystery genre hybrid that pays homage to the slasher horror films I grew up with combined with the fun of buddy comedies and stoner films, with a bit of classic John Waters inspired twisted humor added to the mix,” said producer Jayson Bernard. In Halloweed, Trent Modine and his goof-ball step brother Joey, try to escape the infamy that comes from having a serial killer, The Bridgeport Butcher, for a father (Tom Sizemore). Seeking a new start, they find refuge in the small town of Mooseheart. It does not take long before the besmirched family name catches up to them. Joey, a free spirited stoner seemingly oblivious to his sexual orientation, and Trent, a love sick pessimist, look like the main suspects after a string of murders, similar to a rash of killings 30 years earlier, coincidentally begins just as they arrive in town. It is a race against time because a slash-happy killer on the loose and the bodies are piling up.
The film also stars Jim O’Heir, Andy Milonakis, and Ray Wise. Halloweed is available now through VOD right here.
