“A Christmas Horror Story [has] everything a genre nut could want under the tree: teen sex, elf zombies, a demonic Krampus...and [William] Shatner.”- John DeFore- Hollywood Reporter
“Loaded with insane, bloody violence that’s also really fun in spirit. … the filmmakers pull off a twist that’s so shocking it could save Christmas.” - Brad Miska, BloodyDisgusting.com
”Badass! Loved it!” –Harry Knowles, Ain’t It Cool News
"A blackly comic tale of Christmas carnage…the ending is epic”-
Jason Gober, Twitch Film Twitch.
CHRISTMAS: a time of Joy, Peace and Goodwill. Unless you happen to live in the town of Bailey Downs. Here, on Christmas Eve, joy is corrupted when a malevolent spirit traps three teens in a school basement intent on recreating a twisted version of the Nativity story. Peace is shattered when a family returns from a snowy forest with the perfect Christmas tree only to find something is terrifyingly wrong with their 7-year old son. And goodwill is perverted when a not-so-nice family is hunted down by Krampus, the demonic anti-Santa Claus of Nordic mythology. Even Santa Claus himself is drawn into the horror when he has to fight off a horde of howling Zombie Elves before making his rounds. This Christmas, the creatures are stirring and they’re coming for you whether you were naughty or nice.
A work-in-progress version of A Christmas Horror Story played at Harry Knowles’ Butt-Numb-A-Thon in Dec 2014.
