Here on Dread Central we absolutely love movies that infuse a whole lot of horror into the holiday season, and though Christmas is a long ways away at the moment, it’s never too early to take a peek under the tree.
Read on for details about an upcoming anthology flick that will bring blood, guts, and carnage to this year’s holiday proceedings! As reported by our friends over on Bloody Disgusting, filming is currently under way in Toronto, Canada, on A Christmas Horror Story, an anthology comprised of three tales of yuletide terror.
Santa’s trusty elves become flesh-hungry monsters in the first story, which centers on a mysterious disease that sweeps through the North Pole, transforming the elves into the ravenous undead. Santa and the Missus wage a desperate battle for survival.
The mythical demon Krampus comes to life in the second, with the wicked Bauer family discovering that the stories of an evil Santa Claus are all too real. And they will be punished for their dastardly deeds.
And in the third and final tale of this holiday horror anthology, a troubled cop takes his wife and young son out to pick up the perfect Christmas tree, which stands tall on land owned by the nefarious Big Earl. Daddy goes missing on Big Earl’s land, and when he turns up again, he isn’t quite himself.
A collaboration among writers Doug Taylor (Splice), Sarah Larsen (“Darknet”), James Kee (“Darknet”), and Pascal Trottier (Hellions), the film will feature segments directed by Grant Harvey (Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning), Brett Sullivan (“Orphan Black”), and Steven Hoban (“Darknet”).
