Storyline

A sociology student gathers several friends at the local library on Halloween night 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 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 awakens in the darkened library that she realizes the truth of what lurks among the 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 falls into her lap, she decides to make a grave decision. Be careful what you wish for, it might just kill you. Written by Verite Cinema

Trivia

The characters of Derrick and Justin (who is spoken about and not seen even though a character talks to him on the phone at one point) from "Encyclopedia Satanica" are named after Todd Martin's brother-in-law and his wife's cousin. The character of Paige from this segment is actually named after the character of Paige from Degrassi: The Next Generation, which is a guilty pleasure of co-writer Todd Martin's (as he grew up watching Degrassi Junior High back in the 80's).

Terrifically Twisted!
26 August 2015 | by McGheeTerrySee all my reviews

Volumes of Blood is a horror film centered around the community of Owensboro, KY, or more directly, the library in Owensboro, KY. While this may seem insignificant from a review point of view, I assure you, it isn't. But more about that in a minute.

This film had me tossing my hands in the air and giving up in frustration after just watching the first three minutes of it. Then I hit the 3:20 mark in the film, and caught my first glimpse of true indie film making genius!

The writing in this film is good, the dialogue is pure genius, and the cinematography is nothing short of amazing.

The story centers around a group of four friends inside the library who have to come up with urban legends off the top of their heads. Each story is unique in plot as well as feel. D.P. Bonnell is credited with the cinematography, and just from this film alone, I can not heap enough praise their way. Taking a singular location and making it feel different for each of four urban legend stories, as well as the original plot takes a lot of skill, talent, and hard work, and every bit of it shows here.

The dialogue itself, while sometimes a little over the top, has it's own fair share of genius. The urban legends of the film may not make it into youthful circulation, but I assure you, some of the jokes and one liners surely will.

Now, let's talk Owensboro for a second. It is clear from just watching the film that the community itself plays a major role in supporting the film as well as becoming part of it, and as a film maker, that is always refreshing to see.

I feel like there is so much more to praise about this film, but it really can't be done without spoiling the movie itself, so I'm sorry for that, but rest assured, this film is 100% Indie Film Group approved! There are plenty of mediocre indie films in circulation out there, but Verite Cinema's Volumes of Blood is definitely not one of them. This is a great film for both film makers, as well as those who just enjoy a good horror film with a twist!
