Check Out Joe Russo’s Christmas Themed Horror Short Midnight Clear

Nothing says holiday cheer like a Christmas themed horror short, right?

Well, if you’re like me and can’t get enough holiday horror short films, we have another one for you called Midnight Clear. The short film is directed by Joe Russo (producer of upcoming horror anthology feature Nightmare Cinema and Post Mortem podcast with Mick Garris) and features “a strong political element in the Twilight Zone-like twist.”

Midnight Clear is directed by Joe Russo from a script by John Jesensky & Joe Russo, produced by John Jesensky, Cherish McDowell, Joe Russo, Kurt Yochum, and stars Jessica Morris, Kurt Kubicek, Caige Coulter, and Kue Coulter.

Playing off a universal socio-political fear, Midnight Clear preys on something lurking in the back of every American’s mind, made all the more frightening by taking place on the day when our guard is down — Christmas.
