Christmas obviously isn't on our mind's just yet, as we need the next 3 and a half months to prepare for and celebrate the Halloween season. But, we're admittedly excited for the upcoming holiday horror anthology Deathcember, which will open 24 doors to Hell for "the ultimate advent horror anthology movie."
The film features 24 shorts by 24 directors from around the globe, each one taking a look at the dark side of the festive season, and we’ve now learned that Epic Pictures has acquired worldwide sales rights. They’ve also unleashed a teaser!
Epic Pictures recently kicked of Dread Presents with Dread Central, and with Deathcember, they'll be adding to their already solid roster of horror flicks such as Slay Belles, The Golem, and Book of Monsters.
Notable directors include Pollyanna McIntosh (Darlin’), Isaac Ezban (Parallel), Lucky McKee (May, The Woman), Lee Sang-woo (Barbie) and Ruggero Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust).
Segments from over ten countries make up the scope of the anthology, whose overall cast includes standout talent such as scream queen Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator), Brianna Barnes (The Day), Sean Bridgers ("Deadwood"), Johnny Vivash (Book of Monsters), Barbara Magnolfi (Dario Argento’s Suspiria) and AJ Bowen (You're Next).
The anthology was created by Dominic Saxl, who produced alongside Ivo Scheloske, production manager with Anolis Entertainment, and Frank Vogt, COO of Magna Mana Production and made in part thanks to the German HessenFilm fund.
"We’re beyond proud of the film that DEATHCEMBER has become. With all the incredible and diverse talent involved, it holds something for every horror fan – and we‘re confident that our collaboration with Epic will give everyone the chance to see for themselves," says Saxl.
Check out the teaser below, with the full trailer expected next month.
