This year, we made a collection of the Best Free Blood Splatter Horror Video Overlays for your videos, animations, backgrounds and short movies!

All of these overlays are copyright-free, so you can use them any way you like!
The upcoming Friday The 13th is in July 2018, so pick these up fast, and get down to work!
Scratch Video Overlay
Many times, simple is the right way to go. Insert some video scratches and make it seem vintage – your video will look as if Edward Scissorhands had just edited it! It is a great classic movie recommendation for Friday the 13th too, while you are here, you might as well check it out!

Red Smoke Overlay
This overlay intrigued us because it is short and effective. We recommend using it on an image or a video that already has some smoke, it creates an atmosphere that no one will miss. Also, you can change the color of this overlay, and change it from a blood-colored smoke to even a blue or yellow birthday poof!
Red Light Video Overlay
Despite not being blood, this overlay is red enough to turn any cute video into a horror one! This overlay will add a scary tone to your videos, or even still images. Don’t forget that you can change the color of the light using HSL Adjust or a similar effect!

Chaos Video Overlay
Frequently horror is another synonym for chaos! Make your project chaotic by adding this fast black&white overlay, best used under the “Screen” or “Dodge” blend mode. It can also be colorful, so to add red or any other spooky color, just apply some color correction.

Now that we’ve covered some of the basic overlays that you can use for your horror videos, let’s move on to what Horror is actually all about: Red Blood Overlays!
Blood Drizzle Video Overlay
We all need some high quality blood drips and drizzles for any scary video. These can be used in many ways, they come ready with a compact green screen for easier usage.

You can see a tutorial here on how to apply an video overlay using chroma keyer effect for green screen in Sony Vegas:
Other than blood drizzles, what horror video can be imagined without some blood splattering around? This is one of the best FREE blood splatters we could find, and it is special because it is recorded in slow motion, which means you can speed it up and slow it down to your liking – perfect for creating all kinds of effects.
You want a blood splatter, that is also a blood drizzle? Look no further, cause we prepared one just like that for you!

Blood Splatter Sound Effects
We all know that a true blood splatter must have sound, in order to achieve that sweet realistic feeling. Unfortunately, it is often hard to make such realistic blood splattering sounds yourself, so, please don’t try this at home! 🙂
You don’t need to do that, because we got some awesome mixes here for you. Listen to them, download, and use as much as you like – they are all royalty free.
Bonus: Free Blood Splatter And Horror Vector Graphics
In addition to all of these awesome overlays, we suggest that you take some of the blood stain vector graphics that we prepared for you. You can use these for any of your digital media, and also print them – all of this you can do for FREE!
