Everything you need to know about the horror film ‘The Covid Killer’
The Covid Killer, A New Gravitas Ventures Horror Crime Thriller Release From Writer/Director Jeff Knite, To Hit VOD This Tuesday, November 2.
“COVID is enough of a horror storyline as is, but filmmaker Jeff Knite has taken this foundation and used it as the basis of his terrifying new feature The Covid Killer. By incorporating the touchstones of lockdown, he has created a fresh and terrifying spin on the pandemic and serial killer sub-genres,” said Megan Huggins, Gravitas Ventures Acquisition Coordinator.
Will Jordan, an incompetent detective, and his rookie partner Martina Pippen must traverse the streets of New York in a race against time to stop a serial killer who is taking advantage of Governor Cuomo’s mask mandate by wearing a generic covid mask to hide his identity while he preys on the citizens of New York during the coronavirus pandemic.
With an original score by acclaimed composer Tasos Eliopoulos and a soundtrack from upcoming indie artists Sinner Swing, Jay Doggs, and The Big Bamboo. The Covid Killer stands out in the endless sea of horror films being released in this day and age.
Written and Directed by Jeff Knite, the film also stars Paugh Shadow, Jorge Gautier, Tony Diaz, Johnny Careccia, and Jeff Knite. The Covid Killer is produced by Dark Knites entertainment and distributed by Gravitas Ventures. The Covid Killer releases in the US & Canada on Nov. 2.
