Escapes is a collection of five tales of different lengths, hosted by Vincent Price. Some of these shorts were shown on the Sci Fi channel in its early days, but how they got Vincent Price to host I have no idea. I suppose they gave him money. The rumor is $10,000.
The centerpiece of the anthology is the aforementioned Coffee Break, where a delivery driver breezes into a small town blaring obnoxious heavy metal music, and is advised by the town elder to turn it down, relax, enjoy the scenery, and stop for a cup of coffee before he heads back to the main hiway. Of course the delivery driver peels off listening to the music even louder, finds that no matter which road he takes he ends up back where he started, and eventually does stop at the cafe where he finds the town elder behind the counter holding out that cup of coffee. You know the rest.
Escapes is fun. You can easily find it on YouTube, and that might be the only place, but if you like this genre of horror anthologies you won't hate me for saying it's worth a look.
