Regular readers of Dread Central know that we’ve been assembling 30/31-Day horror movie challenges for truly dedicated (and slightly depraved) genre aficionados with the stamina to consume a genre flick every single day for the past 6 months. We just recently released “The End is Nigh”, out December challenge, which you can gear-up for by clicking on the link below.
It turns out we aren’t the only ones putting on a month-long horror extravaganza via the internet; our friends at Glass Eye Pix are presenting the Creepy Christmas Film Fest, an online holiday gore-fest that will unfold online, advent calendar-style, from December 1st through December 25th. They’ll be featuring a new short horror movie each day. Here’s the scoop for this week’s press release:
This year’s filmmakers include Glass Eye Pix CEO Larry Fessenden (HABIT, WENDIGO), GEP regulars Jenn Wexler (THE RANGER), Glenn McQuaid (I SELL THE DEAD), Graham Reznick (Shudder’s “Deadwax”), Mickey Keating (PSYCHOPATHS), Joe Maggio (BITTER FEAST), James McKenney (SATAN HATES YOU), JT Petty (THE BURROWERS, HELLBENDERS), and many fresh faces – including animators Joy + Noelle, (HUMAN KINDOF), award-winning puppet theater director Jessica Grindstaff (PHANTOM LIMB COMPANY), Gothic impresario Voltaire (GOTHIC HOMEMAKING SHOW), young filmmakers from The Lower East Side Girls Club, and a host of other unexpected contributors.

Indie horror icon and CEO of Glass Eye Pix Larry Fessenden says:
“At Glass Eye, we’re always looking for forums to get people to loosen up, forget about budgets, and rekindle their love of filmmaking and mischief-making. [The Creepy Christmas Film Fest] does just that, and it’s a real treat to see what artists of all stripes come up with for the assignment: ‘Creepy’ blended with the absurdly iconic, over-saturated imagery of the Christmas Season. ‘Deck the Halls’ indeed!”
