Attempting to do for Christmas what Trick ‘r Treat did for Halloween, A Christmas Horror Story is an anthology movie that follows the lead set by the aforementioned Trick ‘r Treat and intertwines its stories, breaking off from one particular group of people’s circumstances and switching to another, and then to another, and then back again. There are four stories altogether, all set in the town of Bailey Downs (a reference to the town in Ginger Snaps and Orphan Black) on Christmas Eve and held together by local radio DJ »

Film Review: ‘A Christmas Horror Story’

30 September 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Not the first, worst or most tasteless yuletide film frightfest by any means, “A Christmas Horror Story” offers five interwoven, variably comedic tales of terror set on Christmas Eve. None is particularly original (though there is one good final twist), but they’re all reasonably entertaining as executed by three Canadian helmers, including veteran genre producer Steven Hoban (“Splice,” the “Ginger Snaps” series), making his feature directorial bow. Even if the season to be jolly does seem to commence earlier every year, releasing this opus on Oct. 2 does feel a bit ridiculous. Still, that limited Stateside theatrical launch (simultaneous with VOD and iTunes) should prove useful in boosting rental visibility closer to the relevant holiday; the pic should also rack up healthy cable sales.

The four principal storylines all involve forms of supernatural mayhem visited upon the unwitting (but not, in Santa’s case, wholly unprepared) on the night before Christmas. »

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 »

A Christmas Horror Story, 2015

Directed by Grant Harvey, Steven Hoban, Brett Sullivan

Starring George Buza, Rob Archer, Jeff Clarke, Jessica Clement, Percy Hynes White, Zoé De Grand Maison, Amy Forsyth, Ken Hall, Debra McCabe, Michelle Nolden, Alex Ozerov, William Shatner

Synopsis:

Interwoven stories that take place on Christmas Eve, as told by one festive radio host: A family brings home more than a Christmas tree, a student documentary becomes a living nightmare, a Christmas spirit terrorizes, Santa slays evil.

In the same vein as Silent Night, Deadly Night, Black Christmas, Santa’s Slay and Christmas Evil, A Christmas Horror Story is here to but a black cloud over the most wonderful time of the year. Only this one is doing things a little different. We’re not just getting one tale of terror, we’re getting four.
