The Bleeding House Directed by Philip Gellat, 2011
Meet the Smiths – parents, Marilyn (Betsy Aidem) and Matt (Richard Bekins, Limitless), and teens, Gloria (Alexandra Chando, As The World Turns), 16, and Quentin (Charlie Hewson, Holy Rollers), 18 – a family full of secrets who keep themselves to themselves. When a sweet-talking Texan (Patrick Breen, Eli Stone, Radio) first arrives on the doorstep of their back-road Midwestern home, his calm, outgoing nature and particular brand of neighborly Christian philosophy seems to be just the remedy the Smith family needs. As the stranger’s true motivations come to light, however, he emerges as a cold, driven killer, who thinks he has been sent straight from God to serve punishment upon the family for their past. What follows in this tightly wound and visceral horror/thriller is a desperate game of cat and mouse between the stranger and his prey. Will he succeed in his goal to bleed them of their sins or will the family’s haunted past prove to be even more deadly than he bargained for?
