There will definitely be blood.

A group of horror story savants is bringing a carnage-crammed series of live shows to the Brick Theater in Williamsburg, and it is no spectacle for the easily spooked.

“We are doing some stabbings, a bashing over the head, and some strangulation,” said co-director Pete Boisvert, “There is a fair amount of effects and gore.”

“Bedlam Nightmares — Part One: Strapped In,” the first of three episodic installments in the series, follows two men known as the Blood Brothers who are trapped in an institution for the criminally deranged. Together, they devour the fright-laden tales of their fellow inmates — which, not surprisingly, feature a whole lot of the red stuff.

“You can get splattered with blood if you are in the first few rows,” said Boisvert, whose Nosedive Productions company has been putting “Blood Brothers” shows on since 2006. “People can get scared, but I think they are coming for a shock.”

The show boasts a short play called “Into the Life of Things” by Nat Cassidy, which examines the weird past of a dead female inmate who was involved in an isolated yoga cult, as well as two vignettes by Mac Roger about other disturbed patients.
