From Writer/Director Nicholas James Wagner and cinematographer J. Michael Whalen comes Shelter for the Bloodstained Soul, the story of a twisted preacher and his cult devoted to the resurrection of a pagan goddess that feeds on the burnt flesh of lovers.
Drifter Addison Montclair (Malcolm Mills) wanders the American Rust Belt, killing indiscriminately with no sense of purpose until he discovers a cursed relic meant to imprison the sacrilegious bones of Claire (Elena Delia), a pagan martyred by Crusaders a thousand years ago. With Claire's guidance, Addison channels his charisma and murderous impulses to form a cult composed of society's most dangerous and despised. Among their charges are the drug-addicted musician Harvey (Maggie Williams Hatfield) and the utterly depraved Tex (Reed Delisle.) Together, they offer tribute to their ancient mother with the burnt flesh of lovers.
Their lives remain a whirlwind of devotional executions until the group happens upon a prostitute named Cammy in the midst of a brutal assault. Claire designates Cammy as the vessel of her foretold resurrection in the coming war against the Christians. Cammy lends herself willingly to the group's blood-soaked endeavors, but her long-lost brother (Johnny Day) and his misguided search for his family may very well lead to the destruction of everything Addison and his ilk hold dear.
