Blood Will Tell is a full length independent low-budget horror movie by Bad Lemon Productions.
Vander believes he has escaped his dark and secret past, but strange events make him suspect there is a connection between his past life and the town he now lives in. As his fear and paranoia threaten to overwhelm him, he becomes convinced that his friends and new wife may have more knowledge of his past than they admit. Ultimately, he realizes his past will destroy everything he now loves unless he confronts the true nature of his blood.
