Trailer for the Horror Thriller THE AXE MURDERS OF VILLISCA, Inspired by a True Story
A 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. The film is called 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 da,y and it centers around some friends who are into ghost hunting. I would have much rather seen an authentic period film that tells the actual story because that would be a lot more interesting. I'll still watch this, though, because I've been familiar with this story for years, and I've gotta see how the movie turns out, for better or for worse.
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 movie comes from director Tony E. Valenzuela, and it will be released on VOD on January 20th, 2017.
