The triumvirate of terror tales is targeting a spring 2025 release.

Filmmaker/actor Daniel John Kearney gave us the first look at photos as well as the story details for DEADLY ENDINGS, which he produced with Felissa Rose and Richard Harlost. The latter also scripted the movie, and directed it with Jaren Lewis, who served as cinematographer. The stories are:

  • “The Package”: A victim of constant bullying receives a mysterious package that bestows upon him supernatural abilities that he uses to seek revenge on his tormentors. However, his victories are short lived. Starring Chaney Morrow, Rose and Hannah Fierman.
  • “One Last Shot”: A suicide victim reflects on his final moments of life before accepting his new reality of being stuck in the limbo of his home. When a new family moves in, he attempts to adjust to sharing his home with the living but is quickly thrown into a power struggle between good and evil as he fights to evict an evil that he believes has attached itself to a young child. Starring Kearney, Jack Berner, Drew Fortier, Eleni Lucas and introducing Skyla Ward.
  • “Side Effects”: A sleazy dealer comes across a new designer drug that should allow him to create his own army of the undead. Unfortunately, a slight miscalculation has dire results when one of his own does not respond well to its effects. Starring Santiago Cirilo, Jeff Descoteaux, Max Hensgen, Angel Bradford and Ruben Rosado.
