Storyline

Years ago Stanley DeBrock, a mentally challenged man, was implicated in the disappearance of Naomi Bridges. Now his twin brother Stone must restore honor to the DeBrock name. Returning home to the small East Texas town of Atwood, Stone is immediately thrown into the mix of a tragic past and an uncertain future. With hopes of rekindling a relationship with his life-long love Diane, Stone encounters his biggest challenge...finding the strength to forgive Stanley. Meanwhile, Stone's uncle Earl Wayne is in debt with two local drug lords...a debt which he cannot pay. Desperate, Earl Wayne and his brother Peebo force Stone into a scheme against Stone's father in order to save themselves. With drama, suspense, and a shocking conclusion, the darkest secrets of the DeBrock family are revealed. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

For Stanley's only scene of dialog, Derek Wayne Johnson chose not to prepare the character's speech pattern and did not rehearse, feeling any sort of preparation for the mentally challenged character would feel forced. Instead, Johnson thought to himself what Boo Radley from To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) might have sounded like had he spoken in that film. The end result is Johnson's improvised interpretation.

Quotes

Stone: All my life I've been taught that there are three things a man should live by; family, loyalty, and truth. So I've always wondered why my twin brother Stanley is the way he is and... why I'm normal. Why I turned out to be okay and... Stanley turned out to be a killer.

Badass!
25 June 2013 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

With dynamic acting, brilliant cinematography, and southern charm Broken Blood keeps you on the edge of your seat. The writing is reminiscent of Elmore Leonard with characters leaping off the screen. Playing a dual role of twins, co-writer/director Derek Wayne Johnson turned two excellent, realistic performances, while also directing a cast and getting a different side out of prolific character actors known more for other types of roles. The characters were fun to watch, and make you want to know more about them. Ali Costello did an excellent job as the southern belle, girl-next-door love interest and had great on-screen chemistry with Johnson. I've already watched it twice!
