“MALEVOLENCE 3” details, Indiegogo launch


Following the two much-praised previous installments, the final chapter in the MALEVOLENCE trilogy is gearing up for production, and fans can be a part of making it happen.

Stevan Mena, writer/director of MALEVOLENCE and its follow-up BEREAVEMENT, has launched an Indiegogo campaign to help fund MALEVOLENCE 3. Here’s the synopsis: “In this suspenseful conclusion to the story, Martin Bristol returns to where it all began: the home where he was kidnapped from. But he is not the boy who disappeared over 10 years ago. Tortured and abused at the hands of his psychotic captor, Graham Sutter, Martin is damaged beyond repair. Lurking in the shadows of suburbia, he stalks and kills without remorse, picking his victims at random—or are they? Special Agent William Perkins follows Martin’s trail of terror, desperate to capture him before he kills again. Martin’s family, mourning his disappearance for over 10 years, is informed not only that he is alive, but that he is responsible for the wave of murder sweeping through their town. Will they be able to reunite with their long lost son before it’s too late, or will Perkins have to use excessive force to bring him down?”

Mena is going the crowd-funding route (with perks ranging from early copies of the DVD and exclusive bonus features to extra and speaking roles and producer credits) in part so he can make MALEVOLENCE 3 as uncompromising as he wants it to be. “MALEVOLENCE 3, like its predecessors, will be a shocking film,” he writes. “Unfortunately, the dark and ‘taboo’ content of BEREAVEMENT has resulted in a lot of hesitation. I could allow MALEVOLENCE 3 to be censored and sanitized, but that would diminish core elements of the story that have already been established, which I think would be a disappointment to the fans who have supported us and the series so far. And myself.”
