Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release the horror film Toys of Terror for digital sellthrough Oct. 27, and on Blu-ray Disc and DVD Jan. 19 (order date Dec. 15).
In a movie that re-creates the nostalgia of stop-motion holiday specials, Dayo Ade and Kyana Teresa play David and Hannah Cashman, who have promised their family a fun Christmas getaway. But when they arrive at a grand, old house in the snowy woods of Washington and are greeted by a familiar construction foreman, the kids realize their parents plan to make it a working vacation, renovating the place in the hopes of flipping it. Alicia (Verity Marks) and her young siblings (Saul Elias and Zoe Fish), though annoyed, find themselves distracted after they find a stash of old toys in an abandoned playroom of creepy mansion. Before long, they seem to be inseparable from their new playthings, much to the consternation of their nanny (Georgia Waters), who senses that something in the house is not quite right.
The film was written and executive produced by Dana Gould, directed by Nicholas Verso, and produced by Blue Ribbon Content in association with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Syfy, where the movie will make its broadcast debut in December.
Blu-ray and DVD extras include the featurettes “Toys of Terror Come to Life” and “A Terrifying Weekend: Making of Toys of Terror.”

He is on a mission to locate and rid the world of the source of the plague that will eventually annihilate the human race.
