Serena Stalin wanted to learn from the best. So she tracked down Butch Harlow, one of the world's most notorious serial killers, and blackmailed him into teaching her the fine art of murder. Now, as the lessons begin, as the teacher and his bloodthirsty student leave a trail of horribly mutilated victims in their wake, they are about to uncover the horrible secrets that bind them together, the unspeakable passion that forces them to kill, over and over again...

REVIEWS:
"What an original movie experience this was. This sick and twisted look at two very unstable individuals is masterfully done. The witty script, playful humor between the killers, and brilliant direction from Matthew Jason Walsh, make this film a creepy delight. Any Tempe fan should own this one, and if you haven't checked out Tempe films before, this one would be an excellent one to start with." - Den of Doom

"The shot-on-video horror market has spit out an astounding amount of worthless, unwatchable garbage over the years, so it's truly refreshing to see a flick like BLOODLETTING reaffirm that it is possible to make an entertaining, clever movie on a budget that would barely be able to buy a decent used car. BLOODLETTING has a twisted sense of humor that makes it extremely enjoyable, even in the most gruesome of situations. Ariauna Albright is wonderful in her role, bringing a bit of sympathy to her character even while she begins to grow into the blood-craving monster that brings about the ultimate tragedy for these two...parodies both modern relationships as well as serial killing, and it's more fun than most shot-on-video features have any right to be. Writer-director Matthew Jason Walsh gives BLOODLETTING a self-assured, confident style, and the camerawork and editing here are some of the most professional I've seen in movies like this..." - Flipside Movie Emporium

"Written by director Walsh and executive produced by b-movie maven J.R. Bookwalter, BLOODLETTING is one of the better shot-on-video productions which have flooded the scene over the last several years. The acting, though not perfect, is funny and effective, and the gore effects are what can be expected at this level of filmmaking but manage to work anyway...should be viewed by aspiring back yard filmmakers as a blue print on how to make a good indie flick." - ZombieKeeper.com

"If microbudget shot-on-vid horror is to remain viable, a lot of filmmakers would do well to study the ways in which BLOODLETTING compensates for its low production values with solid performances and tight scripting, neither of which costs a dime. The most common downfall of these backyard projects is that they simply haven't been sufficiently thought out in pre-production...too many aspiring auteurs these days seem to miss the point and embrace incompetence for its own sake. Happily, this isn't the case with BLOODLETTING, which works primarily because it's so much more tightly focused than most of its peers." - John W. Bowen, Rue Morgue

"This direct-to-video film is NATURAL BORN KILLERS done right. Young Ariauna Albright blackmails serial killer James L. Edwards into teaching her the art of murder and soon the two are on the road, killing as they go. Performances are well done, and there is a sense of style to this tale that could easily have become exploitable. Three stars!" - Video Movie Guide 1999
