‘Violent Night’: David Harbour To Star In Gory New Holiday Horror Film

violent night 750x422 - 'Violent Night': David Harbour To Star In Gory New Holiday Horror Film

Are you ready for another entry into the sub-genre of holiday horror? This year sees the release of Silent Night, an apocalyptic vision of seasonal terror. Next year we will receive Violent Night, a bloody and “dark as coal” Christmas offering.

Universal Pictures has officially assigned holiday thriller Violent Night to their calendar. On December 2nd 2022 the David Harbour starring 87North production will hit cinemas, just in time for you to stuff your stalkings.

Violent Night has been described as a “coal-dark holiday thriller that says you should always bet on red.”  The horror film will star Black Widow,  Hellboy, and Stranger Things’ David Harbour and is helmed by Norwegian director Tommy Wirkola. This is the filmmaker who brought us the Dead Snow series.

Again, Universal Pictures has scheduled their 87North holiday thriller Violent Night for Dec. 2, 2022, Deadline reports.

Subsequently, for those who don’t remember, the Dead Snow snow series is a cult zombie pairing of Holiday features. The Norwegian filmmaker torpedoed into relevance with the films, which saw a group of young people fighting off Zombie Nazi’s in a snowy holiday setting.

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of using Nazi’s in horror. But, there’s no denying the cult status that Dead Snow has achieved over the past decade.
