INKED IN BLOOD

INKED IN BLOOD
By Paul Corricelli

GENRE: Horror
LOGLINE:

After living a life of abuse and pain, a tortured man returns to the town he ran away from as a child to exact his revenge on all those who wronged him, and avenge his mother's suffering at the hands of the one man he fears the most. His father.

SYNOPSIS:

In a desolate, unremarkable town in the mid-eighties, Aesop Quarrels grew up living a tortured existence. His father, Sheriff Edsall Quarrels, was a cruel and vindictive man on his best of days. More so after the birth of his “freakish albino son”(his words). Amid the constant abuse he endured while growing up, Aesop was forced to witness his mother’s abuse at the hands of his father’s weekly poker buddies-punishment for birthing such an abomination.

After receiving news of his mother’s apparent suicide, the fires of suppressed rage and vengeance have been stoked. Aesop returns a tortured soul. Symbolic tattoos adorn both his arms. One side depicting scenes of Hell, the other scenes of Heaven - a badge to the horrific suffering they both endured.

One by one, he will make them pay, not only to mend the shattered pieces of his own life but for his mother’s suffering as well. Past horrors begin to unfold as he embarks on this twisting trail that will ultimately lead to the one man responsible for their suffering. As he struggles with the terrible weight of what he’s done, and the price that he will eventually have to pay, Aesop heads towards a final showdown with his father and, in the process, will uncover a hidden family secret that threatens to tear him apart - he has a half-sister named Candice.
