Trailer: First Look at The Thompsons, the Sequel to The Hamiltons

We’ve been keeping a close eye on The Butcher Brothers’ return to Hamiltons territory, The Thompsons.  A few months back, Shock was the first to show off the sales art you see to the right.

With Cannes upon us, we now have a NSFW trailer!

In the sequel, a bloodbath at a gas station in the desert puts the Hamilton vampire family on the run, eventually seeing them resurface in the U.K. under a new identity as “The Thompsons.” Desperate for protection in this unfamiliar country, the Thompsons seek out the help of a shadowy underground rumored to be sympathetic to vampires.

The original cast are reprising their roles, with Cory Knauf, Samuel Childs, Mackenzie Firgens and Joseph McKelheer being joined by newcomer Ryan Hartwig as the youngest sibling “Lenny.”
