"Summer's Blood" is one of the most deranged, shocking and twisted family thrillers ever made...
Hardened teenager Summer (Ashley Greene, "Twilight") is on the road looking to meet her estranged father. Her only clue to his whereabouts is a letter from a rural community called Massey.
Once she arrives in town Summer is rescued from a run-in with the law by a charming local handyman named Tom Hoxey (Peter Mooney, TV's Falcon Beach). The couple quickly hit it off and head back to the house Tom shares with his mother Gaia (Barbara Niven, Dead at 17)-a woman who also happens to be his lover!
Knocked unconscious by the demented couple, Summer is bound with chains inside a box filled with dirt. Surrounded by lush plants, grow lights, human skulls and a girl on the verge of death named Amber (Danielle Kind), Summer is the latest flower in Tom's "Human Garden".
Realizing that her only chance for escape is to manipulate Tom, Summer begins an unusual relationship with the troubled young man. Anxious about the return of his own father Gant (Stephen McHattie "Watchmen"), a serial killer who moonlights as a traveling salesman-and dealing with the rising suspicions of Amber's father Darwin (Peter Michael Dillon, "The Bone Collector"), Tom finds himself drawn closer to Summer than he ever imagined.
