IN THEATERS, ON VOD AND iTUNES: July 24, 2015
DIRECTED BY: Jack Heller
WRITTEN BY: Tyler Hisel
CAST: Kevin Durand (The Strain), Lukas Haas
SYNOPSIS: Maiden Woods is a remote and quiet town of decent hard-working people, but something stirs in the dark woods surrounding this isolated community. After a logging company decimates an area of the forest, a rash of increasingly violent and unexplainable events transpires. Sheriff Paul Shields (Kevin Durand) and his deputy (Lukas Haas) struggle to confront their own personal demons while facing down a new breed of raw terror that is possibly older than humanity itself… And much, much hungrier.
I will have the director Jack on the show with me SUNDAY NIGHT.
A CHRISTMAS HORROR STORY
Starring William Shatner and George Buza
Directed by Steven Hoban (Darknet), Grant Harvey (She Made Me Do It) and Brett Sullivan (Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed), the film stars William Shatner (Star Trek) and George Buza (X-Men). The film will premiere on July 20, 2015 at this year’s Fantasia Film Festival. Mark Ward, RLJ Entertainment’s Chief Acquisitions Officer, made the announcement today.
“A CHRISTMAS HORROR STORY brings a scary twist to the traditional Christmas tale,” said Ward. “With the legendary William Shatner and horribly fantastic creatures, genre fans will never see this happy holiday the same way again.”
“We are so happy that Mark Ward and his helper elves at RLJ Entertainment, are releasing this film in the US,” said Hoban. “We couldn’t have hoped for better accomplices in our efforts to bring terrifying fun to the holidays.”
CHRISTMAS: a time of Joy, Peace and Goodwill, unless you happen to live in the town of Bailey Downs. Here, on Christmas Eve, joy is corrupted when a malevolent spirit traps three teens in a school basement intent on recreating a twisted version of the Nativity story. Peace is shattered when a family returns from a snowy forest with the perfect Christmas tree only to find something is terrifyingly wrong with their seven-year-old son. And goodwill is perverted when a not-so-nice family is hunted down by Krampus, the demonic anti-Santa Claus of Nordic mythology. Even Santa Claus himself is drawn into the horror when he has to fight off a horde of howling Zombie Elves before making his rounds. This Christmas, the creatures are stirring and they’re coming for you whether you’re naughty or nice.
