“…and then He came…”

Now available!

Inspired by a short story His Great Power Toucheth Me, written on-the-fly at the H. P. Lovecraft Film FestivalBlood recasts the events of that story in the New World at the turn of the previous century, when the New World represented hope and dreams for everyone in the Old World — including those who had best be staying in the Old World.

One of the things about scary campfire tales is that we always know they will eventually end, that the tale will spin to its end and then there will be a little rustling around as people shift their seats, and then the next person tells their story and the cycle begins again. Well, that’s how it used to be…

Blood is Hellbender Media/Guerrilla Productions’ most recent period piece, a terrifying pirate tale, as well as using a complicated pyrotechnic effect and a challenging location.
