Ho-ho-ho…horrors.

A Creature Was Stirring–a new Christmas-themed horror thriller–has been acquired by Well Go USA Entertainment for global sales. No release window was announced, but logic would point to a year-end debut. Check out the first image–courtesy of Deadline–on this page.

The pic follows “overprotective mother and nurse Faith (Chrissy Metz), who keeps her teenage daughter (Annalise Basso) locked in her room and subjected to constant methadone injections–the only way to sustain a delicately balanced fever state that keeps a mysterious affliction at bay,” according to the synopsis.

However, when two strangers (Scout Taylor-Compton and Connor Paolo) break into the house, seeking shelter from a Christmas blizzard, they discover this mother-daughter relationship “stretches the limits of dysfunction and reality–and that the women are hiding a terrible secret. Namely, the presence of a malevolent house guest who won’t be content to lurk in the shadows much longer.”

The film–directed by Damien LeVeck from a screenplay by newcomer Shannon Wells–is produced by Natalie LeVeck and Aaron B. Koontz. Executive producers include Doris Pfardrescher and Brennan Lane.

LeVeck said this film “has it all–a spectacular practical monster, unexpected twists and turns and Chrissy Metz in the kind of performance no one has seen from her before. Fans will relish the actors’ dark transformations in this twisted tale, which elevates the film beyond my wildest expectations.”
