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 face the one man he fears the most – his father.
INKED IN BLOOD is a quirky, gritty horror screenplay about a tortured, tattooed young man named Aesop Quarrels. Seventeen years after escaping from a living hell, he has returned to exact his revenge on all those who wronged him. 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. Past horrors begin to unfold as he embarks on a twisting trail of carnage that will ultimately lead to Aesop facing the one man responsible for their suffering – his father, and in the process he will uncover a hidden family secret that threatens to tear him apart.
