THE HEXECUTIONERS: Trailer And Stills From Canadian Occult Horror
The Hexecutioners marks the second direct collaboration between director Jesse Thomas Cook (Monster Brawl and Septic Man) and Canada's nefarious scribe Tony Burgess (Pontypool and Hellmouth).
Cook produced two more of Burgess' screenplays Hellmouth and Ejecta, so yeah, they are pretty comfortable around each other. Their latest project The Hexecutioners will have its World Premiere at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival. We have a collection of stills to share with you, as well as the first trailer.
