From the story by Lawrence Block, Bride of Violence tells the story of a young Christian couple who go camping one weekend and run into an escaped convict. Isolated in the wilderness, they are tortured and terrorized by this man, while Dennis continues to have apocalyptic visions from the Book of Revelations. This low-budget horror was filmed in ten days for less than 10,000 dollars.

I do not know what movie the other reviewers were watching- perhaps there is a different movie by the same name. This movie was very poorly acted, with an irritating script that made me want the characters to kill each other. When the bad guy is the most understandable and likable character in the flick, I think you have missed the mark. This might be the worst movie I have ever sat through hoping it would get better- or scary. No such luck. I just hated everyone by the end and was glad it ended. My friend told me to watch this movie- and I will never trust him again (perhaps he wrote one of the other reviews?)

I follow the director, Travis Mills, and his progress on new productions, but I have just recently begun viewing his completed films. (Lack of internet after a move made it impossible) Let me tell you... this is a fun movie. As a horror fan, I thought I had seen it all. Travis and crew created some very disturbing and vivid visuals, reaching right into the viscera and giving it one hell of a twist. The characters are portrayed well; no one completely likable, nor entirely detestable. I want to go on, but I don't want to leave any spoilers... I'll leave you with this: Watch it! Tons of fun!

Travis Mills shows his versatility as a filmmaker as he presents Bride of Violence, a creepy and unsettling horror/thriller/drama film. What seems to be a straightforward story of a pre-wedding camping trip gone awry soon evolves into something more ambiguous and insidious with each mysterious twist and turn. This film is a different and refreshing take on a long-established genre that too often can be predictable and uninteresting. I do hope Mills makes more films of this type...
Director does an excellent job of building, then maintaining an atmosphere of ominous suspense. The location shooting ably exploits a claustrophobic deserted mine setting to create a sense of isolation and vulnerability.
I'm not a huge horror genre fan, but this movie is so much fun it won me over. Spooky visuals, a great script and wonderful performances all around. Turn out the lights, grab some popcorn and someone who loves a good scare and settle in for a really scary ride!

If you like symbolism, then you will like this movie. It has philosophical elements and blurs the lines between good and evil. Worth checking out if you’re looking to watch something that’s thought provoking.
I watched this because it's based on a story by Lawrence Block, a vastly talented writer of short stories and novels in a variety of genres. The acting isn't very good, the direction isn't very good, the camerawork isn't very good, it's not paced very well, and while it certainly isn't the worst movie I have ever seen, it's not worth your time. The efforts to make it seem arty and thoughtful just make it clumsy and pretentious. Don't start watching it with the expectation that maybe it will get better, because it won't. Watch something else.
If you want a violent horror or torture porn movie, this isn't it. Bride of Violence does pose questions of what a Christian Kingdom really means. It's limited in scope and budget, but it's an interesting effort with a potentially great theme. Will definitely check out the short story by Lawrence Bloch.
