PRETTY BOY (2021) Preview of slasher sequel to ‘Blind’


‘He’ll break your heart’

Pretty Boy is a 2021 American slasher horror film that continues the story of the titular serial killer, first seen in Blind (2019).

Directed by Marcel Walz (Rootwood; Blood Feast; Seed 2; Kadaver) from a screenplay written by Joe Knetter (Blind; Desert Moon; Terror Overload; actor in Hanukkah). Produced by Oliver Diehm, Daren Hammer, Ivan Bernard Hruska and Rudiger W. Kummerle. Executive produced by James Cullen Bressack.

The movie stars Sarah French (Automation; Art of the Dead; Ouija House; et al), Jed Rowen (Xenophobia; Halloween Pussy Trap Kill! Kill!; Don’t Look in the Cellar), Devanny Pinn (The Dawn; Crossbreed; Bus Party to Hell; et al) and Heather Grace Hancock.

Screenwriter Joe Knetter said: “Filming Pretty Boy was an amazing experience. Every single person on the cast and crew brought their ‘A’ game. Getting back on set safely was our number one priority and we worked hard to make sure it was a great experience for everyone.

The sets we built at Wolfpack Studios took me right back to that world we previously set up. I will admit, the first time I saw Faye and Pretty Boy back together I teared up a bit. Blind is our version of a slow-burn 70’s style drama/suspense film. Pretty Boy is a total 80’s horror slasher.”

Director Marcel Walz added: “Filming Pretty Boy the way we did was a dream comes true for me. It is beautiful, fun, gory and creepy. Seeing our killer, Pretty Boy, slashing through this love letter to the 80s is what I have always wanted to do! Also, as an LGBTQ director, I could go crazy on set design for the Valentine’s party and overall theme in the movie, so be prepared for a lot of pinks, glitter and some intestines.”
