Los Angeles, CA May 9, 2017- Masterfully Macabre Entertainment (“MME”) announced today that they have put the final touches on their latest documentary, To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story. This in-depth biographical documentary on horror icon, Kane Hodder, features interviews with cinema legends, including Bruce Campbell (Ash vs. Evil Dead), Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger), and Cassandra Peterson (Elvira: Mistress of the Dark).

With contributors from over 15 countries, To Hell and Back has obtained a diverse and widespread following. Masterfully Macabre Entertainment will present both domestic and international premieres and bring the highly anticipated documentary to audiences around the world.
