‘By the time you hear the buzzing it’s too late.’

Buzz Saw is a 2021 New Zealand comedy horror film about members of a drinking club being terrorised by a killer beekeeper.

Written, directed and co-produced by Martin Renner. Also produced by Donna Wilkes

The movie stars Phoenix Cross, Linnea Quigley, Donna Wilkes, Benjamin Hudson, Zoë Helen Boyle and Ashton Brown.


“Horror and comedy meet in this cheeky and politically incorrect film, which also pays homage to slasher movies. Plastic dolls, stoner children and a lot of beer are some of the ingredients of this story that reminds us of Peter Jackson’s Bad Taste (but without aliens).

Of course, there’s no shortage of pretty girls, nudity, and a bloody maniac. The Hash House Harriers (“a drinking club with a running problem”) encounter a killer Bee Keeper in a crazy Kiwi horror-comedy that is part Animal House and part 80s slasher movie.”


Distribution and release:

Buzz Saw has been picked up by genre specialists Black Mandala.
