It’s been a few years since I covered Hank Boyd is Dead (for a separate outlet, mind you), so it’s nice to see that the pic is finally going to be unleashed on the American market. It’s an interesting little picture, packed with plenty of black comedy and preposterous moments, and it’s more than overdue for a stateside arrival. Genre aces, Terror Films is making it happen.
Hank Boyd is Dead will land on VOD come June 27th. Check out a couple of clips below to get yourself primed for a full look!
Here’s a little information from the official press release:

Writer/director Sean Melia’s twisted story follows struggling actress and caterer Sarah Walsh (Stefanie E. Frame). She is left alone to tend to the post-funeral gathering for Hank Boyd, a quiet loner, who stood accused of a horrific crime. She knew Hank in high school and finds it hard to believe that he could do anything terrible. However, her opinion begins to change after she meets Hank’s brother, David (David Christopher Wells). David is a local cop with a checkered past. Sarah also meets: Hank’s dimwitted partner Ray (Michael Hogan), Hank’s very ill mother – Beverly (Carole Monferdini), and Hank’s damaged, younger sister Aubrey (Liv Rooth). As the family’s secrets are exposed and the bodies pile up, Sarah must give the performance of a lifetime if she hopes to survive because… Hank Boyd is Dead!
