PANDORA’S BOX PERSONIFIED: A stack of unlabeled DVD’s are recovered within the stony confines of a desolate mountaintop hideaway by the last seven survivors of a planet ravaged by an alien-initiated apocalypse. Upon closer inspection, the band of rag-tag, battle-scarred veterans discover that each disk contains a separate tale of terror; brief chronicles of nightmarish landscapes that seem far too realistic for anything Hollywood could have ever produced. Examples of the extreme horrors on display include:
PUREBRED: ‘Man’s Best Friend’ has a sudden, insatiable craving for something substantially more filling, not to mention a bit fleshier, than a bowl of soggy ‘Alpo’…
SIBLING RIVALRY: The multi-faceted personalities of a gravely disturbed mental patient are successfully cloned, the end result of which is less a miracle of science than a warped manifestation of pure evil….
DONNER PARTY REVISITED: Red-suited, white-bearded ‘Jolly old Saint Nick’ and his magical band of reindeer pick the wrong deserted isle with which to crash land upon one humid Christmas eve, and soon discover the famished inhabitants have added them to the Holiday dinner menu...as the main course….
REVELATIONS IN HELL’S BREAKROOM: Two off-duty demons discuss the pro’s and con’s of job security in the stressful modern day workplace that is the shadowy realm of Satan.…
WHITE MAN’S BURDEN, WHITE MAN’S PAIN: In the deep South of the late 1800’s, a young man writes his aunt a letter laced with fear and desperation after his father foolishly digs a water well inside the marked perimeter of an old Indian burial ground, thereby setting into motion a chain of grisly events that threatens an entire community…..
INSOMNI-MANIAC: Severe sleep depravity has several distinct levels...the final stage of which may birth symptoms more normally associated with the criminally insane.......
PASSPORT TO HELL: At a remote, formerly Top Secret Military Installation located within the rocky terrain of a Colorado mountainside, seven battle-weary survivors face down an army of alien invaders for what little remains of the free world. Against seemingly insurmountable odds that make the infamous ‘battle of the Alamo’ seem like an even playing field by comparison, only one will live to recall the astonishing acts of bravery and selfless sacrifice that followed. Trapped within a surrealistic realm where the fine line between reality and fantasy merge, the lone survivor of a lifeless planet will eventually find that sometimes it is indeed preferable to expire with honor than survive in cowardice, for the latter might well have earned him a ‘Passport To Hell’…

Next stop: the fiery pits via a collection of unrelenting terror tales that explore the unspeakable horrors of eternal damnation...
Double-Dragon Publishing has just released the paperback version of Terry Vinson's horror/thriller "Passports to Hell"...Go to www.double-dragon-ebooks.com for details! Not unlike a multi-layered puzzlebox, Hell has many varied levels, each infinitely worse than the last. Horrid images of horned demons and fiery rivers of damnation are the most common, though an unfortunate few have felt the searing flames within the mundane confines of their everyday existence. Ultimately, only death may provide potential relief to those decayed souls whose guilt threatens to cannibalize their very sanity, only to awake and discover that the sins of one's past come with a horrific price, thus earning them a 'Passport to Hell.'
In the shocking tradition of his earlier novels, ‘SKELETAL REMAINS’, ‘BLOODLINES’, 'BONE CHILLS' and the more recent 'HALF PAST THE WITCHING HOUR‘, this psyche-jarring collection of suspense/horror/mystery tales from Nashville’s own Terry Lloyd Vinson will leave the reader equally shell-shocked and horrified....but screaming for more!
