About Penance

He made them pay for their sins.

Based on a true character, and from the award winning horror writer/director of ‘Days of Darkness’, and the producer of the indie horror hit ‘Automaton Transfusion’, comes a cautionary tale that will make you squirm and twist in your seat.


With unrelenting suspense and terror, Penance is the tale of a young, demure single mother, Amelia (Marieh Delfino), who hits upon hard times and decides to take her future into her own hands and becomes a stripper. Everything is going well until Suzy, her stripper friend, is beaten up on a job and recruits Amelia to take her place. Reluctantly Amelia takes the gig as the money is too good to pass up, only to find the job isn’t everything it seems. Driven to a strange location by a dark and mysterious man (Tony Todd), and confronted by a grizzled hit man (Michael Rooker), Amelia’s world is turned upside down, as her captor (the mind bending Graham McTavish), is intent on one thing and one thing only – to purify Amelia and absolve her of her sins.

Penance is a claustrophobic experience as a Hotel and Last House of the Left
