Sleepaway Camp and Maniac Cop alums join Terror Tales

There are multiple projects out there vying for the chance to be considered "THE EXPENDABLES of horror", and that description has come up again in regards to writer/director/producer Jimmy Lee Combs' anthology film TERROR TALES.

When we first reported on TERROR TALES last month, the presence of Lynn Lowry (SHIVERS, THE CRAZIES, I DRINK YOUR BLOOD) in the cast was enough to get me interested in the movie, and she has now been joined by two more familiar faces from popular genre films: Jonathan Tiersten, best remembered as Ricky from SLEEPAWAY CAMP, and Laurene Landon, who worked with Larry Cohen on such films as FULL MOON HIGH, THE STUFF, IT'S ALIVE III: ISLAND OF THE ALIVE, MANIAC COP 1 and 2, THE AMBULANCE, and his Masters of Horror episode Pick Me Up.


a husband who is abducted by a psychopath and taken on a ride from hell where he is subjected to three horrific tales of terror while his wife and daughter are 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. 

Christopher Showerman plays The Driver, the story-telling psychopath.

Landon's character is Miss Tate, the subversive and twisted mother of a serial killer in the Sledgehammer segment, which is called Radical Video and is the one I'm most looking forward to seeing.
