In the film, "the abandoned home of Wilfred Butler, a wealthy but troubled man who committed suicide in 1982, has been willed to his grandson, Jeffrey. The house has sat in disarray nce Wilfred’s death, standing in the way of developers who want to turn the property into redential homes. Just before Christmas 2012, some thirty years after Wilfred’s death, Jeffrey and his lawyer appear in town to negotiate the sale of the property. But an axe-wielding maniac has set up redence in the house, and he doesn’t take kindly to strangers."
"We are delighted that 101 Films will be bringing LENT NIGHT, BLOODY NIGHT: THE HOMECOMING to UK audiences, say's producer Andrew Jones. "This film is the blood-soaked British lovechild of the American slasher and Italian giallo. It delivers creepy moments and inventive death scenes that fans of the clasc low budget slasher films are sure to enjoy."
