From the Press Release:
After a death in the family, siblings Angelica (Julia Farrell) and James Zacherly (Luc Bernier) travel to the small town of East Willard on Christmas Eve to pay their respects. They stay at a homely bed and breakfast, where they learn the legend of Black Peter, Santa Claus’ vengeful brother. But when they find the lost journal of Jeffrey Butler, they discover the town has its own sordid history – one more rooted in reality.
When the dark reflection of St. Nicholas emerges and begins to punish the eccentric townsfolk, the visitors find themselves in the middle of the mystery. Who is doing the deeds? Is Black Peter real? Or is the truth closer to home? If they don’t find out and put a stop to it, Christmas Day will turn to Garbage Day while the bodies pile up in a bloody heap.
