Theatrical Premiere

At most summer camps, there is always a legendary campfire tale that gets passed down from camper to camper; but in the case of Madman Marz, there is truth to the story. When a group of snot-nosed campers decides to mock the folklore murderer, the backwoods barbarian answers the call with the vicious whack of his axe.

Originally, MADMAN was based upon the actual legend of CROPSY, but when the filmmakers caught wind of another summer camp slasher, THE BURNING, that was already treading that terrain, they became inspired to create their own.

Butchering counselors left and right, MADMAN mixes FRIDAY THE 13TH-style summer camp slaughter with the hillbilly horrors of DELIVERANCE with grizzly results. Also notable: this is the only non-George A. Romero role for Gaylen Ross (DAWN OF THE DEAD/CREEPSHOW), who used an alias for the film.

Gary Sales and Paul Ehlers will be on hand to sign LPs for the Cinematic Void + Death Waltz Recording Co. LP release.
