There aren’t manuals for many of life’s greatest challenges, such as having a successful marriage, raising a child when the world is seemingly going to hell, and murdering people in your spare time. Well, that last one does have a manual. More specifically, a new anthology film, aptly titled “Murder Manual,” offers several examples of stories illustrating how to kill people in vile, disgusting, and terrifying ways.
As seen in the new trailer for “Murder Manual,” Emilia Clarke stars in the anthology film that features a number of stories about creepy things that go bump in the night and will likely end your life. In Clarke’s story, she plays a woman that finds herself captive in a creepy circus, as if there is any other type of circus. There are other stories that feature slashers in masks, torture, and whispering children. Because we all know that there’s nothing more terrifying than a young child that uses her inside voice.
The anthology stars Clarke, Melanie Cruz, Bryan Manley Davis, Hadley Fraser, Anthony Goss, Van Hansis, Sally Hughes, and Sophie Knapp. Directors with work in the anthology include Douglas Keeve, Matt Newton, Toni Tikkanen, Nour Wazzi, Robin Whitten, and more.
“Murder Manual” is actually available on Amazon VOD and will be on other platforms in the weeks to come. You can watch the trailer below.
Here’s the synopsis:
Creepy, terrifying chapters from our book of horror include a girl’s journey from a world of nightmares into the nightmare of reality, a gay couple’s romantic getaway in Palm Springs that turns murderous, a young woman whose ride-share turns deadly, and a young girl who is held captive by a circus and must be rescued by her husband.
