Sadistic Intentions – USA, 2019

Sadistic Intentions is a 2019 American horror feature film about a psychotic musician who lures an unsuspecting ex-bandmate and woman to a remote mansion for a night of deceit and grinding metal mayhem…

Written and directed by Eric Pennycoff (ABCs of Death 2.5 ‘M is for Mariachi’), the movie stars Jeremy Gardner, Michael Patrick Nicholson and Taylor Zaudtke.


“Fright fare fans who enjoy characters with charm and humanity, a story with true drama that is well written and acted, and a slow-burn approach to things will find plenty to enjoy in Sadistic Intentions.” Joseph Perry, Ghastly Grinning

“The first act did feel a bit padded, to fill out the run time a little, but the time it gave us with our protagonists was put to good use. If the trend of contemporary horror films is to invest in character and story, rather than on the villain (as was so prevalent in the 80’s) then this movie is a poster child for that.” Eric Li, The Scariest Things


Sadistic Intentions premiered at the Knoxville Horror Film Fest on 20 October 2018. It has screened at various festivals and will be shown at the 2019 Arrow Video FrightFest on 23rd August.
