Uncork’d Entertainment has picked up the distribution rights to the upcoming Halloween-set horror anthology Tales From the Other Side, starring James Duval (Donnie Darko, Independence Day) and Vernon Wells (Commando, Mad Max 2, Weird Science).
Written by James Cullen Bressack (Hot Seat, Fortress, Pernicious), Zack Ward (Bethany, Restoration) and the late Gordon Bressack (“Pinky and the Brain,” “Smurfs”), Tales From the Other Side follows three children who embark on a trick-or-treat adventure that will turn out to be the most legendary Halloween night of their lives. Their trick-or-treat route includes the home of local legend “Scary Mary.” The legend says you should steer well clear of her but is she as terrible as she’s made out to be? One thing is for sure, she knows all the right tales to scare these three kids silly; six unique stories that take the children on a mysterious path to the unexpected.
The film’s various segments are directed by Pablo Macho Maysonet IV, Jamaal Burden, Scotty Baker, Jacob Cooney, Lucas Heyne, Kern Saxton, and Frank Merle, and the cast is rounded out by Ros Gentle (as Scary Mary), Michael Broderick, Rafael Delgado Jr, Chelsea Vale, Anna Harr, Hunter Johnson, and Andreas Rodriguez.
Commenting on the latest pick-up, Keith Leopard, President of Uncork’d Entertainment, said: “Gordon, James, Zack, and the writers have crafted some very fun, extremely frightening tales. If you enjoyed Trick r’ Treat and Creepshow, this should be atop of your must-watch list come June.”
Producer James Cullen Bressack negotiated the deal on behalf of the film team with Keith Leopard of Uncork’d Entertainment and TALES FROM THE OTHER SIDE will be released on digital and DVD this coming June.
