Director Jimmy Lee Combs has some Terror Tales to tell you

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Filming is currently underway on TERROR TALES, a horror anthology from writer/director/producer Jimmy Lee Combs, who is taking inspiration from some very perfect sources: CREEPSHOW, Tales from the Darkside, and the Amicus anthologies.

TERROR TALES centers on 

a husband who is abducted by a psychopath that gives the man the ride from hell, subjecting him to three horrific tales of the macabre – while his family is held captive in an attached cargo trailer.
The tales include one of a demon that takes a mother 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 who is terrorizing a video store owner and his wife. Years later, on the brink of the digital video revolution, the long standing video store is now on the verge of closing. However, bigger problems arise when the serial killer returns. 

In the final tale, an evil deity 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. Deception is ruled by evil as friends, family and strangers question their trust for one another. 

The cast includes genre icon Lynn Lowry (SHIVERS, both versions of THE CRAZIES, I DRINK YOUR BLOOD) and Christopher Showerman, who is playing The Driver, the psychopath who tells these tales of terror.

This seems like one to watch out for; I've been a fan of Lynn Lowry's for a long time and the stories sound interesting, with the one about The Sledgehammer being especially appealing to me.
