Next Victim: Three Tales of Terror


 

At the Suncrest Rehabilitation Center, there is something-funny going on... and with all the lunatics running around, it's no wonder! The chief resident psychiatrist, Dr. Howard, seems to be taking it all in stride as he seems to have more than just a certain affinity for nuts and fruits, crackers and...well, you get the point. But today is a bit more unusual than most.

A young medical student is beginning rotations today, and Dr. Howard overzealously escorts him during his rounds. Horror film star legend Gunnar Hansen is Dr. Howard, the eccentric and seemingly unstable head of the mental institution. As he tells the intern the twisted tale of the circumstances that brought three unfortunate victims to Suncrest, this walk down the hall narrows the walls to the point that on which side Dr. Howard belongs is anyone's guess:

The first patient, Hansen has simply become "Numb" from the constant bombardment of negative media. On the eve of what appears to have been a bright future for him, a perceived unfortunate event close to the heart causes him to withdraw into an isolated, detached, depressive state - interrupted only by the pizza delivery boy. He continues spiraling further down into a deranged psychopathic world. Where he finally winds up makes even Dr. Howard cringe!

An even darker reality looms within the realm of the Internet. Megan tries to stop her boyfriend, Jason Jackson from succumbing to the lure of a clever advertising gimmick that makes deciphering fantasy from reality irresistible. Although, his friend Kevin, the pizza delivery boy, finds out the hard way that reality can be deadly. And two investigative detectives also discover that this website is not so secure. Still, lust and the promise of a free trip for two to Hawaii can't keep Jason from crossing over into the gruesome world of Monstercam.com. As for Megan...well, let's just say she's now under the constant supervision of Dr. Howard.

With all the talk of fruits and nuts, surely an appetite is bound to set in. And the pizza delivery boy may offer just the solution. A tantalizing dinner party given by Stephen and Kate is the setting for this final patient's story where the evil and wicked dialogue among like-minds becomes food for thought. Only through this obscure tale can we find out what goes on "Under the Table," a tale that might be a little too strange for even Dr. Howard to figure out!

My man Gunnar Hansen is one of the stars in this upcoming horror film, which is directed by Tim Gates, Jeff Solano, and Michael Chamberlain.  You can check out the official site here as well as the trailer here.  No release date has been set for this film.
