Back in 2016 when PopHorror was newly hatched, I reviewed P.J. Stark’s (read our interviews with him here and here) library-centric anthology, Volumes of Blood (2015). It was one of my very first articles (read the review here). For the film’s sequel, Volumes of Blood: Horror Stories (2016 – read our review here), he teamed up with Producer Eric Huskisson (read our interview with him here) to up the VOB ante. Now we’re hearing that the two filmmakers have a new anthology coming up called 13 Slays Till X-Mas, and we couldn’t wait to tell you more about it!
From the press release:
SYNOPSIS: On December 24th, five seemingly random men are invited to a dive bar by a mysterious e-mail. They decide to pass the time by resurrecting the old tradition of telling scary stories on Christmas Eve. As each one takes turns spinning yarns of yuletide terror, it becomes evident that they may be harboring a dark and deadly secret.
