You asked for it, Tiny Tim asked for it, the Ghost of Marley asked for it, and now Dread Central is proud to present the year-round Christmas horror podcast you’ve long been waiting for…Silent Night, Deadly Podcast! Chris, Kieran, Matt and Rob – collectively known as “The Jingle Boys” – are prepared to take you on one demented journey through a winter wonderland of the best and worst tinsel terror the big (and small) screen has to offer.
Episode four splatters paint and blood all over Jesus’ nativity scene in Chris Peckover’s Better Watch Out (formerly Safe Neighborhood). In the film, a twelve-year-old (Luke, played by Levi Miller) and his crush babysitter Ashley (Olivia DeJonge) must ward off an unknown home invader. As their holiday nightmare unfolds, events aren’t as they appear. You’ll get your Home Alone trap setting and defensive standoffs, but Zack Kahn’s screenplay holds more wrapped surprises than generic break-in beats. You needn’t wait long to find out, either.
Better Watch Out has the boys reacting in a way that certainly won’t repeat often. No reason to spoil, right? Brace yourselves for a very special episode of Silent Night, Deadly Podcast you won’t want to miss! Or maybe you should until you watch Peckover’s hot-to-trot Christmas horror mystery. Busted heads, home decorations, popped bubbly and all.
