Blood and Lace is a grisly slasher film sure to satisfy even the most fiendish horror fans. The movie opens with the brutal murder of the mother of Ellie Masters (Melody Patterson). Ellie does not know the identity of her father and, with no known living relatives, is committed to the Jameson Deere Youth Home. The youth home is run by Mrs. Deere (Gloria Grahame), a widow with a strict policy on runaways. When one of the orphans tries to escape, Mrs. Deere kills him and creates a slight panic at the orphanage when a government inspector arrives. Not to worry, Mrs. Deere has it covered. She simply thaws one of the many dead bodies stored in the freezer and disguises the body as a sick boy in the infirmary. Ellie has her work cut out for her if she is going to escape the home alive and find her father.
