Redwood Massacre: Annihilation (2020)

The sequel to 2014’s The Redwood Massacre finds writer/director David Ryan Keith (Ghosts of DarknessThe Dark Within) returning to the titular Redwood Farm, a place where the owner went insane before killing his family and himself. Now, a stranger has brought together several family members to prove whether or not the burlap-masked killer was real or just an urban legend.

Of course, as things often happen in these movies, the killer is very much real and turns the tables on those looking for him. Where the film makes a real jump for originality is by adding in a conspiracy element, as the hunters find a place where serial killers are born and bred. Then, they’re trapped there and forced to battle perhaps more than one maniac (the death of the first movie’s final girl at the hands of someone other than The Burlap Killer will give you a clue).

The filmmakers were also smart enough to cast Danielel Harris (Halloween 4, Halloween 5Hatchet IIHatchet 3) as one of the leads. I like the idea of a heavily armed group trying to get payback on a killing machine and this surely delivers on the concept.
