Malevolence ★ 2004 (R)
Debut for writer/director Mena is a basic slasher film. There's something about a serial killer, an abducted single mom, a bank heist gone wrong, and lots of blood. Mena had to start somewhere but this effort is unmemorable at best. 90m/C DVD . US Samantha Dark, Brandon Johnson, Heather Magee, Richard Glover, Courtney Bertolone, John Richard Ingram; D: Stevan Mena; W: Stevan Mena; C: Tsuyashi Kimoto; M: Stevan Mena.
