Slasher: Cast - Katie McGrath
Sarah Bennett was, quite literally, cut out of her pregnant mother’s belly. The Executioner - birth name Tom Winston - was responsible. He was jailed for the crime, but it left the orphaned Sarah to be raised by her grandmother. Thirty years later, she returns to the town - and the house - where her parents were murdered by the Executioner. You’d think someone living an urban legend would want to escape her past, Sarah and her husband Dylan see a life in Waterbury (and the free house she inherited) as a chance to start anew. That's when the Executioner returns. But if Tom Winston's in jail - who is it?
