Books of Blood is a 2020 horror film based on Clive Barker's novel of the same name. The movie is directed by Brannon Braga and features an ensemble cast, including Britt Robertson, Freda Foh Shen, and Nicholas Campbell. The movie is an anthology of three interconnected stories that revolve around the supernatural. The first story focuses on Jenna (Britt Robertson), a young woman plagued by mental health problems. Jenna is attempting to lead a normal life after a stay in a psychiatric hospital. However, her life is thrown into chaos when a man named Simon (Anna Friel) announces that he can communicate with her dead mother. Simon convinces Jenna to travel with him to a remote house where they can hold a seance and contact Jenna's mother. As the seance progresses, Jenna discovers that Simon's intentions are not what they seem, and she must fight for her survival.

The second story takes place in a small town where a medium named Mary (Freda Foh Shen) lives. Mary is renowned for her ability to contact spirits, and she attracts the attention of a university professor named Elliot (Nicholas Campbell). Elliot is studying the paranormal and is intrigued by Mary's abilities. However, as Elliot delves deeper into Mary's past, he discovers a dark secret that threatens to tear the town apart.

The final story centers around a young couple, Bennet (Yul Vazquez) and Madelyn (Sophie Reid), who move into a haunted house. The couple is trying to start over after losing their child to a terminal illness. However, the house is more than they bargained for and secret passages and ghostly apparitions start to appear. As the couple tries to uncover the secrets of the house, they find themselves facing unimaginable horror.

The three stories are connected through a mysterious character named Brice (Jonas Armstrong), who is on a mission to collect the stories written in people's blood. As the movie progresses, it becomes clear that Brice's motives are not entirely clear, and his connection to the other characters is more complicated than it seems.

Books of Blood is a spine-tingling horror movie that skillfully blends gore, suspense, and supernatural events. The movie showcases a cast of talented actors who deliver standout performances, particularly Britt Robertson, who brings an emotional depth to her character. The film's pacing is expertly handled, and the transitions between the stories are seamless. Each story builds on the previous one, creating a sense of impending doom.

The movie's visuals are also noteworthy, with the hauntingly eerie atmosphere of the house serving as a backdrop for much of the film's action. The special effects team does an impressive job creating the disturbing creatures and supernatural events that populate the film.

Overall, Books of Blood is a must-see horror movie for fans of Clive Barker, supernatural movies, and anyone who enjoys a good scare. The movie offers a fresh take on the anthology format, and its blend of horror and suspense is sure to leave audiences on the edge of their seats.
