Horror anthology Volumes of Blood comes to DVD/Blu April 26th

Last Updated on July 31, 2021

The horror anthology VOLUMES OF BLOOD has been making the festival and convention rounds for a while, and in less than a month it will be coming to home video. Distribution has been secured through LeglessCorpse Films, who will be giving the movie a DVD, Blu-ray, and limited edition steelbook release on April 26th. A major VOD release will follow but has not yet been scheduled.

Executive produced by actress Lynn Lowry (THE CRAZIES) and made in association with the Daviess County Public Library in Owensboro, Kentucky, VOLUMES OF BLOOD has the following synopsis: 

Five tales of dread interwoven when a sociology student gathers several of his friends on Halloween night at the local library to help him create a new urban legend with deadly consequences; Lily is in for a late night of researching and needs something to keep her going. It isn't until she's approached by a mysterious stranger that her luck may change… for the worse; a typical night of work for a librarian becomes a classic ghost story with a modern twist. Sometimes you can't keep a bad book down; Sidney is allowed to stay after hours to study for a test. It's not until she suddenly awakens in the darkened library that she realizes the horrifying truth of what lurks among the stacks of books after midnight. She better pray she doesn't become the prey; Paige faces regrets that she'd do anything to take back. When an ancient and arcane spell book literally falls into her lap, she decides to make a grave decision. Be careful what you wish for, it might just kill you.

The segments and their directors: 

That’s A Wrap! – Directed by Lee Vervoort 

A Little Pick Me Up – Directed by John Kenneth Muir 

Ghastly – Directed by P.J. Starks 

Encyclopedia Satanica – Directed by Nathan Thomas Milliner 

13 After Midnight – Directed by Jakob Bilinski

All three versions of the disc release are currently available for pre-order at the LeglessCorpse website. Pre-ordered copies come with a free signed poster.

Having seen VOLUMES OF BLOOD at the Cinema Wasteland convention last year, I definitely recommend checking it out if you can. It's a good time, and watching it will also get you up to speed for the sequel that is now in the works.
