Premise[edit]

A sociology student and three friends meet in a library and craft four new urban legends.

Production[edit]

Director P.J. Starks and Jim Blanton of the Daviess County Public Library in Owensboro, Kentucky developed the "Unscripted Film School" program so people from Owensboro could experience filmmaking for themselves.[1][2] Their first project was an eight minute horror short and their second would be Volumes of Blood. Using Kickstarter, the crew raised over $4,000 for the film.[1][3]

Reception[edit]

JoBlo.com awarded the film 7/10.[4] Bloody Disgusting called the film "the Best Damn Anthology This Year."[5]Dread Central awarded the film 3.5 stars and praised it to have "all the right bits in place to entertain the horror masses"[6]

Sequels[edit]

In a 2015 interview, P.J. Starks said he had ideas for a second and third volume.[2] A sequel, entitled Volumes of Blood: Horror Stories, premiered on October 29, 2016 at the Owensboro Convention Center in Owensboro, Ky.[7] Fangoria has called it "hands down, the most entertaining anthology in years."[8] In an interview with Dread Central, producer P.J. Stark announced a second and final sequel called Devil’s Knight: Volumes of Blood 3.[9]
