We covered writer/director/producer Jimmy Lee Combs' horror anthology TERROR TALES quite a few times while it was making its way through production, keeping an eye on the project while the filmmaker assembled his "EXPENDABLES of horror" cast. It's been a while since we shared any TERROR TALES news, but now we have a very good update: the movie has been completed and Combs will be taking it to the American Film Market next month. 

In anticipation of the AFM, Combs has released a trailer for TERROR TALES online to give us a look at what he and the genre stars in his cast have been working on.

TERROR TALES begins when 

a husband 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. 

The film's cast includes Felissa Rose, Jonathan Tiersten, Laurene Landon, Lynn Lowry, Helene Udy, Yan Birch, Ari Lehman, Jennifer Runyon, and Miss Asia USA Ashley Park, with Christopher Showerman as the psychotic Driver.

Check out the trailer below, and we'll let you know when there is any distribution news to share.
