Traci Patterson (Kaley Ball), an adrift 20-something who's still reeling from the death of her father and her breakup with an abusive fiancé (Jordan Boyd), discovers that she's pregnant. With the help of her friends, Erin and Mandy (Arian Thigpen, Keni Bounds), she decides to terminate her pregnancy, but quickly after leaving the clinic, she begins seeing and hearing things - shapes in the corner of her eye, strange noises in the middle of the night, and ghoulish figures stalking her every move. Is it guilt or are Traci and her friends in grave danger? Written by CWM Entertainment

Suspenseful Indie Slasher
23 April 2019 | by troma_freekSee all my reviews

Traci, a young troubled woman lives in Mississippi with her two best friends, she's being terrorized by her drunken ex-boyfriend, has issues with her mother and has fallen in love with a med student who does not return her affection beyond casual hook-ups. When she finds out that she is pregnant she makes the difficult decision to have an abortion. Upon leaving the abortion clinic she starts being stalked by a masked killer. Blessed Are the Children is a well crafted low budget slasher that gets the 80's look and feel right while tackling a sensitive subject like abortion with an open mind and open heart.
