One of the best indie films of last year was the horror anthology Volumes of Blood – bloody, entertaining fun. The film found its audience and the horror world embraced it – enough so that a second serving has been cooked up and will soon be hitting the festival circuit for all to enjoy.
8 films from 7 filmmakers this time round and each one more bloody and disturbing than the last. Here’s the official synopsis from the filmmakers:
A couple plans to purchase an old home, but would like one last tour before the closing. They’re guided around the estate by a creepy realtor that may have more in store than they bargained for. Searching floor by floor, they begin to discover the remnants of its sordid and terrifying past… A popular 80’s franchise gets a modern upgrade, but at what price? On Halloween night a teen left home alone meets a trick or treator that wants more than just candy. A door to door insurance salesman makes a Thanksgiving house call with monstrous consequences. Andrew and Sara are happily married and plan on spending some quality time together, but something sinister has other plans for their evening. Carol’s Christmas Eve turns into a fight for survival when a vengeful stranger isn’t feeling the holiday spirit. Lastly, a birthday party turns bloody when some unexpected guests drop by at the wrong time. Seven interwoven tales of terror, how many stories does your house have?
