The quirky, award-winning horror film Hank Boyd is Dead from Bag of Cats Productions was filmed in eight days on a microbudget but rises high above those limitations. This tale of a decidedly unusual family features top-notch performances from Broadway actors and is now available for rental and purchase on Amazon.com and for streaming on Amazon Prime.
Written and directed by Sean Melia, Hank Boyd is Dead finds struggling actress Sarah Walsh (Stefanie Frame) taking on a catering job at the post-funeral home gathering for Hank Boyd, a former high-school classmate of hers who killed himself while under suspicion of a grisly crime. The catering gig doesn’t go as planned, to say the least, as Sarah learns more than she should about the Boyd family, including Hank’s siblings David (David C. Wells) and Aubrey (Liv Rooth), and their mother Beverly (Carole Monferdini).
The trailer quotes “an engrossing, quirky horror tale” from Gruesome Magazine‘s 3.5-star review. Hank Boyd is Dead offers an intriguing slice of independent horror cinema. Check out the new trailer and a clip below. For more information, visit the film’s official website.
