What's it all about?
Lady Belladonna and her nefarious minion Addy are back with another round of suspenseful tales from the depths of Pandora’s Box! Join the Mistress of Perdition as she contends with the spirit of creativity, when film auteur Ed Wood drops in to make her an offer she can’t refuse. Interspersed with never-before-seen stories of vampire vengeance, misplaced curses, alien invasions and more tantalizing trips beyond the veil, Lady Belladonna’s Tales From The Inferno is a hellish anthology of immorality and damnation, with a twist! Included are the titles “Family Tradition,” “7 Doors,” “Hexit Strategy,” “Light Signs” and “The Inferno.”
Produced by Borderlands Media, in association with PRC Productions, Lady Belladonna’s Tales From The Inferno was written and directed by David Salcido. Reprising the roles they created in Lady Belladonna’s Night Shades, Tawnya Bass returns as the Lady Belladonna and Donny Prosise steps back into the heels of the Lady’s assistant, Addy. Creating spectacular visual effects to bring the Abyss to life is Carlos H. Tejeda, with outstanding sound design by Jorge Villarreal Jr. Director of Photography is Troy Scoughton Jr. Executive Producer is Troy Scoughton Sr. p.g.a. Line Producer is Robert Dean. Producers are Troy Scoughton Jr. and David Salcido.
As with the last anthology, the concept of Lady Belladonna's Tales From The Inferno depends largely on the shorts that take up the bulk of the screening time. Created by both up-and-coming filmmakers and veterans of the industry, each was produced and created separately, then later assembled by the partners of Borderlands Media to become part of this production.
