I just happened upon the trailer for Jakob Bilinski’s indy horror film THREE TEARS ON BLOODSTAINED FLESH, produced by CinePhreak Pictures, over on BloodyDisgusting, and it really caught my eye. The title alone invokes the classic Italian giallo films of Argento and Fulci, while the trailer (put together, it would seem, for the Cannes film market) appears to showcase a fresh new independent director’s vision as he blends various subgenres to interesting effect.

While much about this film is shrouded in mystery to me, the film stars Bill Gobin, Jim Dougherty, Kayla Crance, Angela Steele, Rosalind Rubin, Grant Niezgodski, Sidney Shripka, Kevin Roach, Alex Hahn, Joe Atkinson, Eric T. Schroeder, Mark Nash, Jim O’Rear, Sonny Burnette, Rusty James, Julie Pyle, and Scott Ganyo.

In the film, A man with a sordid past returns to the town he’s long since abandoned, to bury his niece. Convinced her death wasn’t accidental, he begins probing about the town… Only to discover its dark secrets.
