Bad Blood

Synopsis: Summer vacation will never be the same for nine College students on their way to Lake Tahoe when they are derailed from their plans and land at 'Millie's Cherry Pie Inn and Diner' and the very 'normalcy' of both 'Lawrence' the Charming Patriarch of this group of "Outlanders" and his wife "Millie", and their grandson "Jim" prove to be chillingly threatening in their simplicity and rejection of all that is 'Modern'...Our nine enthusiastic young travelers are lulled into a false sense of security until they are forced to face the fact that the Devil sometimes wears a gray suit and smile, and that their only hope of survival is to stick together and escape the cloyingly sweet tentacles of terror and death woven by the seemingly benign inhabitants of this secret Clan.



Go inside.

I'm here, love...

Mother's here.

Alright, it's alright now.


Can't you help your sister

when we're not here?

I didn't say I wouldn't help.

Can't you hear the baby crying?

Couldn't you go and have a look?

I've told dad

it's better we take milk with us.

There, we might not find it

and it's a pain.

- If that was the only pain...

- Don't be like that.

He's already a nervous wreck

because he thinks

we're all against it.

Like you're really happy about it,


We're going to start a new life

and you could be more positive

because your dad deserves it...

I think.

Meanwhile, despite not having

a clue what she's looking at...

...she still insists

on staring intently at it.

Maybe because she's cultivated

that outdated thing

the ancients called curiosity.

Your dad's counting on you

to show up as soon as you can...

Some of us have exams...

You know very well

that's not the problem.

And he's upset because he thinks

you don't agree with his decision.

I just think his decisions

drag a lot of people after them.

And, if possible,

I'd like to have a say in my life.

Don't be unfair.

Dad brought us up

to praise the pollution of the city.

He said he couldn't live without the

bookshops, the cinemas, the concerts.

And now he's dragging us all off

to a house beyond the sunset. Why?

Why doesn't he sell it?

Because he wants to try a new life

while he has time...

Try it, then,

and tell me about it later...

You can eat at gran's

whenever you want.

I've arranged everything

with Adelaide.

There are checks in the office,

let us know if you need more.

The estate agent will phone. Be nice

showing them the house, if they come.

This conversation is over,

I'm talking to myself here...

...and you're not listening

because you want to study.

I believe in God,

the Father almighty,

creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ,

his only Son, Our Lord.

He was conceived

by the power of the Holy Spirit

and born of the Virgin Mary.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified,

died and was buried.

On the third day, he rose again.

He ascended into heaven...

and is seated at the

right hand of the Father.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy Catholic Church...

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins...

I command you, foul spirit,

in the name

of Our Lord Jesus Christ!

I command you to release

and make clean this person

that God made from earth.

He, who sent you to Hell

from on high... Hell he commands you!

Oh, mother!

My holy mother!


messenger of death,

root of all evil,

thief of life.

Do not resist me, corrupt beast,

for it is Jesus Christ

commanding you!

Oh, Father, don't do this to me,

for the love of God!

I conjure you, ancient serpent!

And I order you, unclean one!

Leave this servant of God!

Return to your black death

and leave this child of Christ!

In the name of the Father

and of the Son,

who reigns with you and the divine

Holy Spirit for all eternity. Amen.

There's no need for that...


Your face, man!

There's no need to get like that.

I've just never seen

anything like that!

Well, get used to it.

Do you know how many you've done,

up until now?

Here and elsewhere...

I've lost count.

And do you think, Father Vicente,

that in this case it was justified?

Was what justified?

The girl seemed more scared

than anything else.

And there's always

the power of suggestion.

People can believe things

that have much simpler explanations.

- Are you calling me stupid?

- I'm not saying that at all!
