TALES FROM BEYOND: VOLUME 1 is the first in a series of creepy audio drama CDs featuring 3 true stories on each volume relating to hauntings, cryptozoology, UFOs, and other paranormal activity (such as premonition of death, astral projection, and wildly improbable coincidence). Each volume of stories is professionally performed in the style of the classic radio dramas from yesteryear by some of the best voice talents in the industry and hosted/narrated (in "The Twilight Zone" style) by beloved actor Daniel Roebuck (star of The Fugitive, Glee, Matlock, The Devil's Rejects, Rob Zombie's Halloween, US Marshals, Ghost Whisperer, and more).
TALES FROM BEYOND: VOLUME 1 features the following stories:
THE DEAD IN THE HOUSE: Following the accidental death of her mother, a young girl and her father move in with his mother-in-law. Before long, the girl makes friends with the ghosts of three entities who reside in an upstairs nursery; though the adults assume that her new "friends" are her three new dolls.
TWELVE HOURS TO LIVE: After her husband storms out of the house following an argument, the young woman begins having visions of him in terrible danger. She seeks help from his disbelieving business partner and the police before resolving to rescue him herself.
DEADLY FORTUNE: A skeptic has his fortune told at a party. As events begin to unfold exactly as the psychic has predicted, his disbelief turns to fear that the psychic's final prediction, that he will be pursued by a knife-wielding woman, will also come to pass.
TALES FROM BEYOND is written and produced by Jim O'Rear (UNDERGROUND ENTERTAINMENT) and Kevin Herren (MACABRE MANSION) and will be distributed by Schiffer Publishing.

With his “magical” background and having been trained in New York at The American Academy Of Dramatic Arts, it was only natural that Jim move into the realm of film, television, and theatre where he has worked steadily as an actor, stuntman, screenwriter, and special make-up effects artist on such projects as Fall Of The House Of Usher, ABC's Nashville, Star Trek 4, The Vampire Wars, Lethal Weapon 3, Creature Feature, Hayride Slaughter, Day Of The Dead, Cop & ½, Psycho Beach Party, Evita, Little Shop Of Horrors, No Retreat No Surrender 3, Mortal Kombat: Conquest, and many more with actors including Martin Sheen, Burt Reynolds, Mel Gibson, Amanda Plummer, Maximillian Schell, Robert Englund, Jon Voight, Chris Sarandon, and others.
