Mercy

Mercy

 

Killed in a wave of small-town hysteria motivated by a hate crime, Mercy Hawkins (Emilee Harris) is resurrected by a mysterious healer to seek justice against her attackers. Newly reborn and hell-bent on revenge, Mercy has little memory of who she was or how she died. To learn the identity of her killers, she must reclaim her past, her memory, and uncover the brutal secrets surrounding her death. First on Mercy’s hit list is Psychobilly (James Pomichter), a pack-rat serial killer with strange powers – and a secret connection to Mercy’s demise. As she confronts her first adversary, Mercy will learn that though her painful past is a weapon that can be used against her, sometimes a broken heart is the only power that can save the world. A sexy, surreal vision from director Antony Teofilo and producer Paul Cuoco that follows in the spirit of The Crow and Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Mercy also pays homage to the “schoolgirl slasher” genre popularized in Japanese anime films. Steeped in mythology and rich detail, Mercy provides a first glimpse into The Tales of Earlytown, an epic new saga in which the death of Mercy Hawkins is only the first in a series of strange events that will change the world forever. In Earlytown, secrets (and bodies) rarely ever stay buried. Given time, your sins will always find you… and when they do, woe to the wicked: Mercy is coming, and she has forgotten the meaning of her name.
