A work-in-progress version of A Christmas Horror Story played at Harry Knowles’ Butt-Numb-A-Thon in Dec 2014.

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 Christmas Horror Story is produced by Steven Hoban (Haunter, Splice, Ginger Snaps) and Mark Smith (Subconscious Password, 388 Arletta Ave) and executive produced by David Hayter (Wolves, The Watchmen). The interweaving stories are directed by Steven Hoban, Grant Harvey (Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning) and Brett Sullivan (Darknet, Orphan Black). A Christmas Horror Story is written by Doug Taylor (Splice, Darknet), Sarah Larsen (Darknet), James Kee (Darknet), and Pascal Trottier (The Colony, Hellions).
