Holiday Horror Comes Early as Slasher Flick ‘Brentwood Strangler’ Heads to Film Festivals.


It’s just a blind date. Keep an open mind!

From John Fitzpatrick, writer/director of the acclaimed short thriller Skypemare and Far From Everything Films comes the highly anticipated follow up BRENTWOOD STRANGLER! With a unique Christmas setting, beautifully shot, the film is a satirical and at times brutal cinematic experience with an incredible cast, led by ‘scream queen’ JORDAN LADD, and is an homage to classic thrillers of the past such as Strangers on a Train, Marnie and Psycho. Brentwood Strangler is a film bound to be recognized not just by horror fans but all fans of cinema for being an exciting and distinctive film; with a focus on story and character, saluting a genre, bending it and leaving the audience wanting more. Brentwood Strangler is hitting the film festival circuit so keep your eyes out for programming dates – the strangler is coming to wreck-havoc for the holidays.

Synopsis: It’s the holiday season in Los Angeles and women are being strangled to death in the Westwood area; Maggie, a lonely woman goes on a blind date unbeknownst to her that her date is an active and notorious serial killer, The Brentwood Strangler. Is love in the air? Or is Maggie in for the worst (and last) date of her life?
