The Creepy Christmas Film Fest Returns for 2018

Christmas is about to get creepy…..again.  According to Entertainment Weekly, The Creepy Christmas Film Fest is set to return after a 10-year absence to brighten up (or darken, depending on your point-of-view) your holiday season.  The new trailer for the 25-day festival, which begins on December 1st, which can be accessed by following the link below.

The Creepy Christmas Film Fest was created back in 2008 by film-maker Beck Underwood and the production company Glass Eye Pix.  It operated as a digital advent calendar, offering the hardcore horror audience a new digital short every day until Christmas.  The original lineup of contributors included some well-known genre darlings like Ti West (The Innkeepers), Mary Harron (American Psycho), and James Felix McKenney (Satan Hates You.)  The digital advent calendar was designed after an actual diorama built by Underwood, a room-sized model of a holiday scene containing “misfit toys and mischievous critters.”

For the 2018 edition Underwood enlisted the assistance of many returning contributors, along with new blood such as Sydney Clara Brafman (Squib), The Andujar Twins (Bloodline, the upcoming Scare Package) and Mickey Keating (Carnage Park.)  Each director has created a short film with a horror-based holiday theme, with one short released a day from December 1st to Christmas Day.  The 10th anniversary edition promises to provide plenty of scares and dark entertainment for horror fans of all ages (though geared more towards the adult crowd.)

Stay tuned to HNN for more news on the 2018 Creepy Christmas Film Fest as it breaks!
