The Bleeding House Synopsis:
Meet the Smiths—a family full of secrets who keep to themselves on a back road outside a small Midwestern town. In this visceral, tightly wound horror/thriller, their lives are shaken when a sweet-talking Texan arrives on their doorstep on a mission for retribution. 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?
The Bleeding House, starring Patrick Breen, Alexandra Chando, and Betsy Aidem, will also have a limited theatrical release beginning May 13, 2011.
