Matt Mercer and Mike Testin on the Comedy Horror Dementia Part II [Exclusive Interview]

Dementia Part II - Matt Mercer

Dementia Part II – Matt Mercer

Most of the time, sequels tend to be direct storylines of its predecessors. For Dementia Part II, the film is unrelated to its 2015 version, which is a horror thriller. The follow-up story is a comedy of horrors with the same director Mike Testin and a new lead Matt Mercer with a familiar face.

A film festival called Cinepocalypse in Chicago challenged the filmmaker Mike Testin to write and shoot a feature film in five weeks. Along with Matt Mercer, they entered a new territory to make a completely unrelated sequel that’ll be goofy, weird, and unique. As a result, Dementia Part II became a load of laughs fun for a midnight screening.

The film also stars Graham Skipper (Almost Human, Sequence Break), Najarra Townsend (Contracted, The Stylist), and Suzanne Voss (The Lords of Salem, Dementia).

Here’s the official synopsis:

Wendell (Matt Mercer) receives a threatening phone call from his parole officer Reggie (Graham Skipper) that if he doesn’t find a job immediately, he will face serious legal repercussions. Wendell wrangles some home maintenance work for a seemingly benign older woman, Suzanne (Suzanne Voss), who persists in giving him increasingly absurd tasks to complete around the house. As the workday progresses, Wendell is thrown into an ever-escalating nightmare, and comes face to face with an unexpected evil. Suzanne hides a dark secret. And it’s up to Wendell and Suzanne’s daughter, Sheila (Najarra Townsend) to put and end to her madness.
