Fourteen months ago, we shared a trailer that was released to promote writer/director/producer Jimmy Lee Combs' horror anthology TERROR TALES as the project headed to the American Film Market. We said we'd let you know when there was any distribution news – and now that time has arrived, as we've learned that High Octane Pictures will be releasing TERROR TALES on VOD on January 8th.

Described as an "EXPENDABLES of horror", TERROR TALES stars Felissa Rose, Jonathan Tiersten, Laurene Landon, Lynn Lowry, Yan Birch, Ari Lehman, Jennifer Runyon, Helene Udy, Miss Asia USA Ashley Park, and Christopher Showerman.

The synopsis: 

When Michael wakes up he is horrified to find that he is riding shotgun with a psychopath (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 (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 (Tiersten, “Sleepaway Camp”) who is terrorizing a video store owner and his wife. In the final tale, an evil deity (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.

Along with the release announcement comes poster art and a new trailer, both of which can be seen below.

TERROR TALES has had my attention for a while now, so I'll definitely be checking it out. We'll all have a chance to see it in just over two weeks.
