In honor of cast member Dayo Okeniyi’s appearance in the newest installment of the Terminator franchise, the team behind American Backwoods: Slew Hampshire has released a new poster (shown above) and three new exclusive teaser clips featuring their lead actor.
In addition to his role in Terminator: Genisys, Okeniyi has typically played supporting characters in Hollywood films like The Hunger Games and Runner Runner – but his work in American Backwoods: Slew Hampshire represents his first as a leading man. Despite being his only foray into the horror genre to date, his performance as “Bro” – the reluctant hero amidst an ensemble of creeps, cretins and creatures – has been widely lauded and even garnered him a nomination for “Best Actor” at the Shockfest Film Festival.
Since its release in June, American Backwoods: Slew Hampshire – which was awarded “Goriest Scene of the Year” by Rue Morgue Magazine – has been recognized as a stand-out amongst this year’s crop of indie slashers and has been racking up recommendations by online horror critics. Check out the new clips below.
American Backwoods: Slew Hampshire is currently available through Amazon Instant, Itunes, Vudu, Hoopla and numerous other video-on-demand services throughout North America. The DVD (featuring 5.1 surround sound, gag reel and audio commentary) is also available through Amazon.
