The Ballads Of Reemus 2 Sings For Its Supper

I am concerned you won’t remember the very splendid The Ballads Of Reemus.

At the time I said that there was a larger project in the works, and now there’s some evidence of it. The Visitor: Massacre At Camp Happy. It’s a genre change for the worm, now a third-person top-down mutilate-em-up, as you chomp your way through a campsite. The new trailer is below, and it’s well worth watching until the people start popping.
