The hunt is on for Martin Bristol. Tortured and abused at the hands of his psychotic captor, Graham Sutter, Martin is damaged beyond repair. Lurking in the shadows of suburbia, he stalks and kills without remorse. Special Agent William Perkins follows his trail of terror, desperate to capture him before he kills again. Martin’s family is informed that not only is Martin still alive, he’s responsible for the wave of murder sweeping through their town. Will they be able to reunite before it’s too late, or will Perkins have no choice but to use excessive force to bring Martin down? Starring Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog, Escape From New York), Katie Gibson and Kevin McKelvy, who reprises his role as Agent William Perkins.

So far with these Malevolence movies, we’ve seen what felt a lot like a play on Friday the 13th 2. We then saw a more solid story-based film that felt a little like a Rob Zombie flavored film (With less bad words). Now with the last of the trilogy, Malevolence 3: Killer, we see the movie’s killer basically do his best Michael Myers impression as we creatively manage to pick things up right where they left off after the original film. From there we learn a little something about his family but we mostly just have him stalking a girl and her friends racking up the kill count and unleashing a lot more blood and guts on the screen than we have had before. If you dig slasher movies then that could be very well be all you want but if you liked the thicker plot from before you might feel a little let-down here by this one. I liked the body count and all that here, but I do wish we had stronger characters to get behind like the last one offered up.

The biggest issue with this one might be that the movie doesn’t seem to know a good spot to wrap things up. We have what I’d call a big finale and then things seem to just keep on rolling along. If this leads to another movie then I guess that’s an okay thing but if this is the last one then perhaps a certain stopping point in the movie would have been enough. Either way, it still ends up being a very solid movie and offers up some T and A along with the gore and anybody who digs slashers can appreciate that. The extras offer up another solid list of things here and the other two have as well. If you’ve never seen this trilogy of films before, then Malevolence 1-3 are worthy of checking out but this is perhaps the weaker of the three. It still isn’t bad.
