Following their acquisition of the new genre flick Astonishing Tales of Terror: Rocktapussy!, Black Fawn Distribution has unveiled the never-before-seen trailer for the film. The horror-adventure-comedy is set to be released on limited-edition Blu-ray on September 27, 2022 with a VOD release to follow.

The limited-edition Blu-ray of Astonishing Tales of Terror: Rocktapussy! will include a VHS retro-designed slipcase, reversible cover art, and three collectible mini-lobby cards featuring artwork inspired by the film. Special features on the disc will include audio commentary with the cast and crew and an in-depth behind-the-scenes featurette.

The cast of the film – including star/producer Brigitte Kingsley and director Andrew Cymek – will also be attending this weekend’s Fan Expo event in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Joining Kingsley and Cymek as part of Black Fawn Distribution’s exclusive lineup of guests will be cast members Landy Cannon, Alys Crocker, Troy Blundell, and Winny Clarke. Fans will be able to meet the cast at the Black Fawn Distribution booth or attend the “Monsters & Movie Making” panel where the filmmakers will be diving into the making of Astonishing Tales of Terror: Rocktapussy!

In addition to Black Fawn Distribution’s involvement with the project, Nicely Entertainment will oversee the film’s VOD release in the United States as they expand into the genre film space.

Astonishing Tales of Terror: Rocktapussy! is a plucky, provocative, action-horror hybrid that combines the classic fun of a tomb raiding adventure with the cosmic horror of a creature feature. Brigitte Kingsley (Dark Rising) stars as an intrepid reporter with a take-no-guff attitude, whose pursuit of the truth only leads her to trouble. In the tradition of rowdy adventure comedies and campy grindhouse horror, Astonishing Tales of Terror: Rocktapussy! is directed by Andrew Cymek (Night Cries) and produced by the husband-and-wife team of Kingsley and Cymek.

Astonishing Tales of Terror: Rocktapussy! Synopsis

Astonishing Tales of Terror: Rocktapussy! follows a group of everyday heroes after they unwittingly awaken an ancient monster. When intrepid reporter Hunter Hazelton (Brigitte Kingsley) bumps into down-on-his-luck miner Carey Barnes (Landy Cannon), the duo join a rag-tag bunch of survivors as they attempt to fend off mind-controlled zombies, possessed medieval knights, and a gigantic demonic demigod: The Rocktapus! Starring Brigitte Kingsley (Dark Rising) and directed by Andrew Cymek (Medium Raw, Night Cries), Astonishing Tales of Terror proves that there’s always time for one last great adventure!

I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane or TikTok @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.
