Mandao Returns now streaming on Amazon Prime

Christmas came early this year as Amazon Prime just released the scifi/horror indie “Mandao Returns” the sequel to the cult hit “Mandao of the Dead.” It was recently acquired by distributor, Indie Rights.

U.S. readers can watch it HERE whilst UK readers can watch it HERE.

This is the third feature from Writer/Director Scott Dunn and Producer Gina Gomez Dunn. They successfully raised funds for the sequel via Kickstarter and managed to complete production only 2 days before all film productions shut down due to the pandemic. Because of the lockdowns, Scott Dunn had to tackle post-production by himself (editing, color correction, effects, and sound) and release the flick in time for the holidays.

Jay Mandao is not your average hero. He’s an astral projecting time traveler who spends his days hanging with his adult nephew Jackson, crashing on his scheming cousin Andy’s couch, and riding with his cabbie friend Fer. In the days leading up to Christmas, Jay tries to make contact with his deceased father Raymond, but ends up contacting the ghost of B-movie star, Aura Garcia. Aura enlists the gang to astral project back in time to prevent her death. Jay quickly finds out that the more he messes with time, the more he falls down a rabbit hole of cults, conspiracies, and death. This Christmas is gonna kick astral! The sequel to Mandao of the Dead.

The first instalment in the indie franchise, Mandao Of The Dead, garnered critical acclaim when it was released and screened at the San Diego Comic Con and LA Comic Con in 2019.
