Strong trailer for new indie slasher film. Looks like a bit of good fun for fans of the genre. We like their attempt to create a new slasher villain. Though the name “Damien” seems an unfortunate choice due to its association with The Omen series. Here’s a brief plot rundown:
Madison County is about a group of college students that travel to a remote, mountain town called Madison County to interview the author of a tell-all book on the accounts of the grisly murders that happened in the town over two decades ago. Upon their arrival, the author is no where to be found and the townspeople state that they’ve “not seen him in years.” They also deny that Damien Ewell, the notorious murderer, ever existed and that the murders never happened. As the kids start to dig around to get their own answers, they come to find that the stories, and Damien, maybe more real than the townspeople are letting on.
Clearly not the most original movie. But the makers seem to understand the parameters of the genre.
