SAWED OFF (2021) Preview of Evil Dead meets Groundhog Day-style horror

 

Sawed Off is a 2021 American horror film about two hunters, vying for the affections of the same woman, who find themselves on cursed land. The former friends keep killing each other and coming back to life. The story is apparently reminiscent of The Evil Dead and Groundhog Day.

Directed and edited by Hunter Johnson (Irrational Fear; California ParanormalSerena Waits2 Jennifer) from a screenplay co-written with Jody Barton, from a story by Chuck Wagner, based on the latter’s Eclipse Comics story ‘Bag Limit’, published in Tales of Terror in 1986.
