Fantasia Film Festival is heading towards the end and what a festival it has been. Websites everywhere have been reviewing films and letting everyone know about some of the great films showcased there. One of the films we mentioned before the festival is the must see holiday horror A CHRISTMAS HORROR STORY. It looks as if the one time screening was not enough as another has been scheduled for this Wednesday the last day of the festival. Critics and fans are enjoying the film and will get to see it one more time!

Krampus strikes again! By popular demand and with overwhelming critical acclaim, A Christmas Horror Story, an interconnected hair-raising tale of Yuletide terror, will have a second screening at Fantasia, Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival on the closing night of the festival.

Second Screening will be on Wed, Aug 5 at 7:30PM at

J.A. De Seve Theatre / 1400 De Maisonneuve Ouest

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.


Run time: 100m
