Trailer Thoughts: A CHRISTMAS HORROR STORY [2015]

We’re going from classic Halloween [see my Frankenstein Friday Fun Fact] to..Christmas? Wait, hold on.. let me try that again… ahem.

One thing that I’m becoming more and more of a fan of, is holiday themed horror movies. Whether we’re talking ones that take place on Halloween or on St. Patrick’s Day, movies that have their story revolved around such a holiday are a guilty pleasure of mine. 2015 is quickly proving to have a wealth of holiday horror headed our way, with Michael Dougherty‘s Krampus, and now, Grant Harvey and Steven Hoban‘s very own A Christmas Horror Story! Like most cases in most holiday themed horror films, the last place you want to be alone on the Christmas Holidays is in a small town. In the upcoming film A Christmas Horror Story, the small town in question is none other than Bailey Downs. The film will follow five different [yet, interwoven] stories that take each take place on Christmas:starting with one which is told by a festive radio host, another follows a family who brings home more than just a Christmas tree, a student-made documentary becomes a living nightmare, a Christmas spirit terrorizes the naughty [and the nice!], and also: Santa Claus slaying evil Elves! If this sounds like something you’d be interested in watching, then I’ve got exciting news for you: the synopsis for the film has been released, and so has the trailer! Catch up and read the synopsis down below!

Christmas is supposed to be a time of joy, peace and goodwill. But for some folks in the small town of Bailey Downs, it turns into something much less festive. When Krampus – the anti-Santa who punishes the naughty children – is summoned by a young boy, everyone’s fight for survival begins..”

you can’t not say that Santa looks pretty bad ass in this screenshot!

Another awesome thing to note about this film [which I’m sure you’ll notice in the trailer] is that a certain famous actor appears: none other than William Shatner! I mean, if that doesn’t sell you on A Christmas Horror Story, I don’t know what will! A Christmas Horror Story is scheduled for theatrical release on October 2, 2015 and I haven’t been this excited for a film involving Christmas in a long time.. Be sure to check out the trailer for A Christmas Horror Story at the bottom of this paragraph, and let me know what you thought about the trailer for the film. Is it a film you’d consider watching? Or do you think it looks like B-Movie garbage that’s trying too hard to be a cult classic?
