In case Valentine’s Day didn’t satiate your need for love, director Marcel Walz has just announced a sequel to his 2019 film Blind (review).
Pretty Boy, coming mid-2021, continues the story of the reclusive masked serial killer on a quest for blind love during Valentine’s Day.
“Filming PRETTY BOY the way we did was a dream come true for me,” Walz said. “It is beautiful, fun, gory and creepy. Seeing our Killer, “PRETTY BOY”, slashing through this love letter to the 80s is what I have always wanted to do! Also, as an LGBTQ director, I could go crazy on set design for the Valentine’s party and overall theme in the movie, so be prepared for a lot of pinks, glitter and some intestines.“
Screenwriter Joe Knetter is also returning for this second installment of the cult hit:
“Filming PRETTY BOY was an amazing experience. Every single person on the cast and crew brought their ‘A’ game,” Knetter said. “Getting back on set safely was our number one priority and we worked hard to make sure it was a great experience for everyone. The sets we built at Wolfpack Studios took me right back to that world we previously set up. I will admit, the first time I saw Faye and Pretty Boy back together I teared up a bit. BLIND is our version of a slow-burn 70’s style drama/suspense film. PRETTY BOY is a total 80’s horror slasher.”
Pretty Boy stars Sarah French (Blind), Heather Grace Hancock (Wicked City), Devanny Pinn (The Dawn), Robert Rusler (Weird Science), Maria Olsen (Percy Jackson and the Olympians), newcomers Jake Red and Andrew Rohrbach, and returning as PRETTY BOY, Jed Rowen.
