Editorial Reviews

Product Description

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? THE BLEEDING HOUSE is a terrifying portrait of how the sins of one can stain an entire family.

Customer Reviews

Decent plot and very good acting.
Amy S. Williams
This felt like a bunch of very inebriated college kids got together and talked a friend's' parents into making a movie.
This was a very boring movie with not much happening.

Philip Gelatt's "The Bleeding House" is a low budget psychological horror story that is likely to be a bit divisive depending on your expectations. Though not without a fair share of gruesome imagery, the film's greatest strength is its ambition. Not just a typical hack and slash, the villain of this piece voices an existential narrative about the nature of humanity and its salvation. The film is quiet and contemplative and, even at its most extreme, surprisingly matter-of-fact about its blood letting. There is almost a gleeful unpleasantness to the proceedings that make this far creepier than actually scary. So if you're looking for a fast paced narrative of thrills and chills, this may not satisfy your cravings. If, however, you are content with a slow build drama of increasing unease--there is a lot to recommend the film despite its obvious budgetary constraints.

The film's greatest asset is lead Patrick Breen (a terrific character actor relishing this showy role). Appearing at the rural homestead of the enigmatic Smith family, this Southern gentleman quickly ingratiates himself with the clan with his offbeat wisdom and unorthodox manner. Breen may not be the non-threatening traveler that he seems, but the Smiths aren't your average family either. Every major player is harboring secrets and resentments about a violent incident that has ostracized them from the community. Just as everyone settles in for the evening, real motivations become apparent and the blood starts to flow. Through it all, Breen carries on with his extended diatribe about the soullessness of man, his role in polite society, and the importance of the Smiths confronting their darkest demons.

A deliciously evil performance from Patrick Breen as a psychotic serial killer elevates this grim Indie.
Breen exudes a chilling charm as a mysterious stranger who insinuates himself into a deeply disturbed family with dark secrets of their own. Alexandra Chando plays "Blackbird", the strange teen who seems more than slightly off center. We soon learn Blackbird is more than a match for her captor.
BLEEDING HOUSE deserves credit for a novel approach to the serial killer genre but I felt somewhat cheated by its ambiguous climax. However, Breen--who I remember from guest roles on LAW AND ORDER and THE GOOD WIFE--should definitely garner bigger roles in the future.

I'm not a film student or anything, but I just felt it was missing something. I love the horror genre.. movies.. books and after reading the reviews I was expecting something more.

The concept was interesting, can't say that the whole don't invite strangers into your house thing hasn't be done before.. but at least there were more twists to it than normally seen. I don't think this movie had any real suspense moments where Im looking through my fingers to see whats going to happen next.. it just kind of is what it is.. you think something is going to happen and you are mostly right.

Maybe I missed something, but I was slightly confused as to one of the characters. Didn't really explain anything and you are just left thinking.. ok whats the deal? Or maybe it was so deep in meaning I missed it entirely. HAHA you never know.

I say its worth the watch for something unique, but don't expect too much.

This film takes place over the course of late afternoon into the middle of the night. The Smith Family seems to be a bit cranky when we first meet them in this film, except for the daughter that won't answer to her given name. She will only answer to "black bird." Mom, keeps the knives locked up in a kitchen drawer. Black bird has a hobby of sticking pins into dead insects, then onto her wall: An impressive and creepy collection. Mom and this daughter have issues;black bird refuses to paint her room and sneaks out her window to check on her bird trap. In fact, Mom seems to wear the pants in this family. The older brother wants everyone to face reality about their situation of being "outsiders" in this town, and his sister's "problems" with the simplistic solution of just picking up and moving away. Both parents point out the obvious;lack of money prevents moving a household and setting up a new one.
A gentleman stranger wanders up to their back door, claiming car troubles, and makes himself look like a suffering lamb, caught out in the cold night, to sleep in his car. The father wants to invite him in, but the mother doesn't want to. She looks like she is a bit more wise about not trusting strangers and I'm on her side. He wheedles his way in and that was his plan. After an ugly scene in Black Bird's room when a live bird she had stashed in a box gets loose, and is flying around, and Mom is perturbed with her like this isn't the first time. She reminds Black Bird she isn't suppose to have anything "live," and demands that she hand over the bird while the stranger is watching. He is fascinated even more with the daughter when she shows her cruel defiance to her Mom with the captured bird and in clear view of a him also.
