Tonight, the Chiller network kicks off its first original scripted series Slasher with a special 2-hour premiere. In Halloween of 1988, in the small town of Waterbury, a young man and his pregnant wife were murdered by a hooded killer known as the Executioner. After committing the murders, Tom Winston cut the baby from his victim’s womb and rocked it while waiting for the police to arrive. Now, almost 28 years later, Sarah Bennett (Katie McGrath, Dracula) returns to Waterbury to live in her inherited house where her parents were murdered. Her husband Dylan (Brandon Jay McLaren, Graceland) gets a job at the local paper and is perturbed to discover that his wife is front-page news. However, that’s quickly changes as the Executioner has returned and resumes his deadly rampage, taking out the townsfolk one by one. The only problem is that Tom Winston is still in jail, so who has taken up the killer’s hood and mantle and why? As Sarah starts to uncover the town’s buried secrets, she finds herself consulting an unlikely source for help in trying to figure out what’s going on.
The series also stars Wendy Crewson (Saving Hope), Steve Byers (The Man in the High Castle), Dean McDermott (Ecstasy), Christopher Jacot (Eureka), Erin Karpluk (Being Erica), Rob Stewart (Killjoys), Enuka Okuma (Rookie Blue), Mark Ghanime (Helix), and Jessica Sipos (Ascension).
The series is very much of the horror genre where there is a serial killer on the loose who is brutally murdering people one by one. There are some very dark, creepy, and tense moments designed to make you jump, and you never know who is truly safe (well, you can probably guess one character who will make it to the end!). We’ve seen some other shows recently in this same vein, like Scream and Scream Queens; however, this series doesn’t have that campy, self-aware like tone of the others. Tonight’s two-hour premiere does a good job of establishing the setting, introducing us to some of the unusual folks who live in this town, and starting to unlock the larger mystery of what’s going on, who the Executioner copycat might be, and how he is choosing his victims.
On tonight’s 2-hour premiere, “An Eye For an Eye / Digging Your Grave With Your Teeth,” a woman finds herself at the center of a series of copycat killings, similar to her parents’ murders, when she returns to the small town where she was born.
