See why THE BLOOD SPATTERED BRIDE had to kill every man on their wedding night! Presented in 35mm!
Riffing on the 19th century vampire tale of Carmilla, The Blood Spattered Bride is a trashy exploration of female sexuality, marital misogyny and good old fashioned graphic violence. The film follows a young woman who’s jarred at the discovery of her new husband’s twisted sexual appetites while they’re honeymooning at his family’s secluded manor. Repulsed at the touch of her husband, she seeks solace in nightly visions of one of his ancestors: Carmilla – the Blood-Spattered Bride, who seduces the young woman through lessons in love, lust and murder.
