“The second film in the trilogy has a lot more going on this time around”, said director/ producer Putch.
The new film centers around the mystical Pond Bank Road, where ghost and alien activity have been rumored. “The White Woman was so popular in the first film, that I decided to bring her back in part two. She is a pivotal character that helps expose strange alien activity around Mister Ed’s Elephant Museum and Candy Outlet.”
