‘The Hangman’—Rural Appalachia Horror Arriving from DREAD

Epic Pictures’ specialty horror label DREAD has announced the upcoming horror “The Hangman,” a terrifying tale of sinister secrets hiding in the hills of rural Appalachia. The film will have a limited theatrical run beginning May 31, and on June 4, it will be available to rent or purchase on video-on-demand (VOD).

In “The Hangman,” Leon (LeJon Woods; “The Tomorrow Job”) takes his teenage son on a camping trip into deep rural Appalachia in an effort to mend their troubled relationship. Unbeknownst to them, the mountain region houses sinister secrets. A local cult has summoned an evil demon born of hate and pain, known to them as The Hangman, and now the bodies have begun to pile up. When Leon wakes to discover his son missing from camp, he must face the murderous cult and the bloodthirsty monster that is The Hangman to find him.

“The Hangman” is directed by Bruce Wemple (“Island Escape”) and written by Wemple and LeJon Woods. The film also stars Lindsey Dresbach (“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”) and Vincent Conroy (“The Christmas Venue”).

“We set out to tell a story about the lengths a father will go to get his son back, including coming face to face with a bloodthirsty demon raised from hell,” says Wemple. “We can’t wait for audiences to come along for the ride.”

“The Hangman” is a DREAD original production in association with Traverse Terror. Cole Payne executive produces the film, which is also produced by Zach Wyles and Dan Booke. The independent studio fully financed the film from production to distribution.
