Blood on Her Name trailer: A gripping neo-noir thriller that challenges the line between good and evil
Since debuting at Fantasia International Film Festival last year, neo-noir Blood on Her Name has picked up strong reviews from critics. Almost all who have seen director Matthew Pope's film have said it makes for an enthralling and gripping 84 minutes. This Americana thriller asks questions about good and evil and the thin line between both, with its main character caught up in an ever-increasingly complicated scenario. We'll have a review for Blood on Her Name at the end of the month, but for now check out the trailer.
The dead body lies at her feet, its blood still draining onto the floor. It was an accident, borne of self-defense, but its discovery could have devastating consequences for local garage owner Leigh Tiller and her son. In a panic, Leigh decides to conceal the crime, cleaning the bloody scene and scrambling to dispose of the body. But can she actually disappear a man from the earth—from his family—leaving them forever wondering? As Leigh is torn between her primal instincts and tortured conscience she struggles to keep her sins hidden from her estranged father–a cop with a long history of moral compromise –and from the keen-eyed girlfriend of the deceased. Blood On Her Name is a character-driven thriller that explores questions of guilt, moral identity, and the irrevocability of choices in the direst circumstances.
Pope writes and directs his debut film, with Bethany Anne Lind, Will Patton and Elizabeth Röhm all starring in the cast.
Blood on Her Name plays in select US cinemas on February 28 and arrives on VOD the same day.
