Killer House

Movie:  Blood Stains  aka A Murder in My House

Where: DVD in my living room

My Reason For Seeing It: I thought it was a vampire movie

I picked up a bunch of movies back at Hallowe'en in a clearance sale and this was one of them.  The artwork is of a woman's face from the nose down with blood pouring from her lips and the tag line "His Kiss Is Killer".   The box made it sound like it was a vampire movie.  
It's not.

Plot:  After he has a heart attack, a retired lawyer moves back to his hometown with his adult daughter. They soon learn that the house they have bought was the scene of a murder two years before, and that the woman arrested was wrongly accused. The dad starts to dig into the case, reopening it, as the daughter gets into a relationship with the neighbour across the street. Little do they know that the killer is the new boyfriend.

This is a 2006 made for tv movie.  And it's not horrible, but it's not great either.  It's one of those films that you can sit through if it was on tv at night without having to really pay attention to. 
The scenery in this is beautiful.  But then again, most movies that are made for television really pack a punch with locations.
It's also one of those cautionary tales about being careful who you get involved with.
