While most studios are delivering Krampus styled holiday horror this season, Dark Sky Films has the alternative. The always hilarious Brian Posehn gives his best anti Christmas act in the dark comedy UNCLE NICK. Uncle Nick is a drunken and lewd a**hole and he’s coming over for the holidays. The Chris Kasick directed and Errol Noel produced film hits theaters on December 4th. In the vein of films like BAD SANTA, UNCLE NICK is the next f**ked up yuletide tale.
Lewd, drunken Uncle Nick (Brian Posehn, Mr. Show, The Sarah Silverman Program) stumbles his way through his brother’s cookie cutter-family’s annual Christmas gathering in the hopes of scoring with a super-hot party guest. But the arrival of his equally crass sister coupled with Nick’s liquor-fueled faux pas cause family secrets to bubble to the surface that might spell disaster for the whole clan before the night is over. Presented by Errol Morris, UNCLE NICK is a raucously funny comedy of inappropriate behavior, uncomfortably interrupted trysts, and a monumental over serving of ten-cent beers.
UNCLE NICK is directed by Chris Kasick and stars Brian Posehn, Scott Adsit, Missi Pyle & Paget Brewster. It is being released courtesy of Dark Sky Films.
