“If I asked Santa for a classic slasher film, ‘All Through The House’ is exactly what I want under the tree,” says PDXtreme Festival Director Jeremy Janz. “Todd Nunes delivers on the 80’s nostalgia and Ashley Mary Nunes is a scream queen on the rise. We’re proud to be screening it at PDXtreme Fest.”


“I’m excited to screen ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE in Portland,” says Todd Nunes, writer and director of ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE. “This is a fun, scary film that Portland audience will definitely get a kick out of.” Nunes’ sister Ashley Mary Nunes, stars in the 80s-style slasher film featuring a deranged Santa Slayer who rips through the town of Napa, California for some yuletide-terror.  

ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE was recently awarded Best Local Feature at San Francisco’s Another Hole in the Head Film Festival. The film also won three awards at Hollywood’s RIP Horror Film Festival in October:


* Official Winner of Best Slasher, Todd Nunes for ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE

* Audience Choice Award ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE



ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE was also nominated for the RIP Festival’s Best Music Score and Best Ensemble.


“ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE is a horrifically titillating Christmas tale with a holiday surprise from Santa,” says, L.J. Rivera, founder and director of the RIP Horror International Film Festival. “We at RIP Horror were ecstatic to give these awards to ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE and present their world premier at our festival.”


ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE stars scream queens Ashley Mary Nunes (SYFY’S ROBOT COMBAT LEAGUE), Jessica Cameron (TRUTH OR DARE), and Jennifer Wenger (TALES OF HALLOWEEN, JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE). The film’s gory special effects were created by Tommy Pietch of SYFY’S FACE OFF and STAR TREK: RENEGADES.


Fifteen years ago, a peaceful Christmas neighborhood was engulfed by fear when five-year-old Jamie Garrett was mysteriously taken from her bedroom, never to be seen again. Now on Christmas break, Rachel Kimmel comes home from college to find her neighborhood struck again by a reign of terror. A violent killer is hiding behind a grisly Santa mask, leaving a bloody trail of slaughtered women and castrated men to the steps of the Garrett house. Rachel finds herself in a horrifying nightmare as she discovers the twisted secret behind the mask.


“This slasher has been brewing in my mind since I was a kid,” says Director/Writer Todd Nunes. “It’s not a rehash of popular Christmas horror movie subplots, like punishing the naughty, Santa obsessed psychos, or death by antlers. This is a dark, scary, violent story that delivers on a big bloody body count, beautiful girls, and lots of terrifying action. It’s everything I love to see in a horror movie – every murder is shown on screen and the anti-hero is a killer with a diabolical, sadistic mystery.”


“Although I loved my character because she is strong and complex, I’m really drawn to the twisted and crazy characters she meets in this movie,” says actress Ashley Mary Nunes (as Rachel Kimmell). “The Killer in ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE is disturbing, gross and really unique – I’m fascinated by the depraved impulses. I know that everyone is going to love all the gore and violence, but there is also a twisted mystery that ties it all together like a big Christmas bow.”
