With Honeydew now on all VOD platforms, the next Bloody Disgusting x Dark Star Pictures collaboration is going full-blown weird and is guaranteed to deliver gross-out mayhem when Dementia Part II arrives in theaters on May 21, 2021, and on VOD, Digital HD and DVD on June 1st.
Taken from the pages of Sam Raimi, and delivering absurd gross-out humor and nonstop mayhem, the making of Dementia Part II came out of a dare from Chicago’s Cinepocalype Film Festival and the movie’s producers JD Lifshitz and Raphael Margules. The two must produce a feature-length midnight movie from concept to finished product in one month so that it could make its World Premiere on the last night of the film festival! The film turned out to be Dementia Part II, a tongue-in-cheek sequel to Mike Testin’s 2015 original film.
In Dementia Part II, “Suzanne wasn’t always this confused. She wasn’t always dead either – when an ex-con takes a job as a handyman for an unstable elderly woman to avoid a parole violation, it becomes a choice he may regret.”
The film stars genre favorites Matt Mercer (Contracted, Bliss, Beyond the Gates), Graham Skipper (Almost Human, Sequence Break, VFW) and Najarra Townsend (Contracted, The Stylist), with Suzanne Voss (The Lords of Salem).
It was produced from conception to its world premiere screening by the writer/director team Matt Mercer and Mike Testin (The Salesman, Dementia) in just 30 days!
“We aimed for off-kilter midnight horror-comedy territory and put the pedal to the metal,” said Testin. “The goal was not to fly in the face of the first film, but instead to create something entirely of its own identity, and make a fun, gooey, bizarre ride in the process.”
