The ideology stemming from writers; Marx, Engels, Lenin.

MLs believe that a successful socialist revolution needs a vanguard party and that there needs to be a transitionary period where the bourgeosie are oppressed out of existance. This usually occurs through the seizure of private property, nationalization of industry, and bourgeois culture. The proleteriat via the vanguard party will create a workers state which will implement all of what's said above. Eventually the state will whither away as it becomes less needed usually when the threat of counter revolutionary behavior is gone, and then we will have communism, a stateless, classless, moneyless society.
You know MLs aren't red fascists right? They were instrumental in defeating them.

Get the marxist-leninist mug.
One who follows the political philosophy or ideology of Stalin. Marxist-Leninists believe that Leninism is valid, and countries like the USSR are ready for Socialism (unlike Marx, who would've said otherwise), but there must be rapid growth in this nation (often with grave consequences...) in order to reach Marx's standard and hence rejoin the Orthodox Marxist path. Maoism, Castroism, Hoxhaism, and other hardcore Communist ideologies are derived from M-L.
Most Communist parties in the UK, like CPGB-ML, are Marxist-Leninist.
Marxism-Leninism is not Stalinism. Stalinism is what killed the people, and it's a way of enforcing M-L instead of an ideology in itself. Marxism-Leninism never killed or hurt anybody.
