‘Thomas has been a bad boy.’

Made Me Do It is a 2017 American horror feature film produced and directed by Benjamin Ironside Koppin (Return of Night with Bite) from a screenplay co-written with Matthew John Koppin. The movie stars Anna B. Shaffer, Kyle Van Vonderen and Cortney Palm.


Enter the fragmented mind of serial killer Thomas Berkson. After a lifetime of abuse and rejection, Thomas has finally found someone who loves him unconditionally, the evil mask, Barbara.

Following her maternal influence, Thomas blindly obeys Barbara’s every command as she takes retribution on all those who’ve hurt her precious boy. Distorting Thomas’ mind, she uses him as a vessel for her bidding. Barbara’s rage descends on the unsuspecting Ali Hooper, her teenage brother, Nick and her ex-boyfriend Jason…


Made Me Do It is showing theatrically in Los Angeles with at least seven showings at the Arena Theater; filmmakers will be in attendance. On April 23rd, Indican will release the movie on home entertainment platforms.


“It’s a psychological study of a killer whose bloody journey leads him on a path that makes sense only to him. Indie horror fans need to check this film out. It has some unmistakable potential.” Pop Horror
