Korn frontman Jonathan Davis to play villain in new horror movie Devil’s tree. Davis chose a character called The Pet, who finds endless comedy by killing people.
Manufacturing on Devil’s tree began in 2013, getting stuck in various levels of hellish development before its eventual completion. The film was directed and co-produced by Joshua Petrino, who directed the visual effects for the film. Petrino’s credits include work on the TV series Wilfred and movies To divide and Contracted.
“After visiting an iconic tree believed to be a gateway to hell, a group of friends throw a pitiful house party where, without an explanation, they realize they can’t mentally bring themselves to leave,” we read in the synopsis of the film. “Shortly after this revelation, the torment and slaughter begins at the hands of a supernatural killer with a twisted and sadistic sense of humor.”
âJonathan did an amazing job as a bad guy,â Petrino enthuses. âHe really helped us create a memorable character and it was a lot of fun working with him. He was perfect for the role. We started production in 2013 and we had what seems like an endless amount of obstacles. along the way. The movie has changed a lot since we started, but now we’re ready to start showing it. I’ll be honest this movie isn’t for everyone, but if you like things like Clerk, Hatchet, The devil’s rejections, It’s always nice in Philadelphia, or that of Damien Leone More terrifying– it’s probably for you. “
Davis adds: “[Josh] asked me to get involved and I thought it was a good idea and it ended up happening. Everything about murder is fun to [The Pet] it’s just a black and black comedy.
A new clip has also just been released from Devil’s tree, which shows the horrific moment when a character’s wound after having their tongue torn out is cauterized by a hot poker.
