The horror anthology craze of the early 2010s may have cooled some as we reach the tail end of the decade, but there are still some incredible offerings coming down the pike. Fans of anthologies and Christmas-themed horror movies received All the Creatures Were Stirring in December and, now, we’re getting word that Terror Tales will be arriving on VOD platforms January 8th. Sounds like a perfect way to ring in the New Year!
Written and directed by Jimmy Lee Combs, Terror Tales brings together cast members from classic horror properties like Friday the 13th, Maniac Cop 1 & 2, George Romero’s The Crazies, Wes Craven’s The People Under the Stairs, Sleepaway Camp, Critters 2 and more.
Today, we’re pleased to share an exclusive clip from Terror Tales. While Geishas are known for their intellect and creativity, this one has murder on her mind. Her weapon of choice is both shocking and apropos. Give it a look-see at the top of the article. You can read the full synopsis for Terror Tales below and the trailer at the bottom of the article. Enjoy!
When Michael wakes up he is horrified to find that he is riding shotgun with a psychopath (Christopher Showerman, “Supergirl”) who reveals to him that his wife and daughter are held captive in the attached cargo trailer. The trailer is rigged to release a deadly toxin when triggered by a switch in the car. Thinking of his family’s safety, he cooperates with everything the psychotic driver asks him to do even if it means breaking the law.
During this bizarre ride, the driver subjects Michael to three horrific tales of the macabre including a demon that takes a mother (Lynn Lowry, “Shivers”) on a journey of self-discovery and reveals to her the horrifying truth behind her son’s suicide. The next tale transpires in the ’80s where a Detective is hot on the trail of a serial killer known as The Sledgehammer (Jonathan Tiersten, “Sleepaway Camp”) who is terrorizing a video store owner and his wife. In the final tale, an evil deity (Yan Birch, “Wes Craven’s The People Under the Stairs”) is using the human body as a host to possess its victims. When the deity destroys one victim it jumps to another causing an epidemic of possessions being reported.
With a burning desire for the truth behind his abduction and the safety of his family, will Michael have the will to survive the madness? Your sanity will be tried and tested in Terror Tales.
