Epic Pictures (Dread Central’s parent company) recently announced the acquisition of worldwide sales rights for the upcoming Christmas horror anthology Deathcember, which features rising and celebrated directors and talent from around the world in an impressive advent calendar of terror.
“We’re beyond proud of the film that Deathcember has become. With all the incredible and diverse talent involved, it holds something for every horror fan – and we‘re confident that our collaboration with Epic will give everyone the chance to see for themselves,” says creator Dominic Saxl.
Notable directors include Pollyanna McIntosh (Darlin’), Isaac Ezban (Parallel), Lucky McKee (May, The Woman), Lee Sang-woo (Barbie) and Ruggero Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust). Segments from over ten countries make up the scope of the anthology, whose overall cast includes standout talent such as scream queen Barbara Crampton, Brianna Barnes (The Day), Sean Bridgers (Deadwood), Johnny Vivash (Book of Monsters), Barbara Magnolfi (Dario Argento’s Suspiria), and AJ Bowen (You’re Next).
The anthology film is composed of 24 shorts + 3 bonus segments, each inspired by a unique take on holiday terror, with concepts ranging from giallo-inspired to stop-motion to Japanese ghost tales, and beyond every corner of the horror genre.
