Shapeshifters Clash With Killer Santas in the Trailer for Shudder's 'A Creepshow Holiday Special'

Shudder is set to spread Christmas fear this holiday season with A Creepshow Holiday Special, which will premiere exclusively on the horror streaming service in all its territories on December 18th.

Today sees the release of the hour-long special's official trailer and poster artwork. The trailer teases an epic battle between a group of shapeshifters and a society of killer Santas! It's a totally bonkers premise that's sure to be a lighthearted treat for horror fans this Christmas.

In the holiday themed, hour-long episode, "Shapeshifters Anonymous," fearing he is a murderer, an anxious man searches for answers for his "unique condition" from an unusual support group.

Starring Anna Camp (Pitch Perfect) and Adam Pally ("The Mindy Project"), the special is written and directed by "Creepshow" showrunner Greg Nicotero, based on a short story by J.A. Konrath (Last Call).

"The Spirit of Christmas is alive and well in true Creepshow fashion," said Nicotero. "Reimagining how we look at the holidays and Santa Claus with an outrageous ensemble cast, a myriad of creepy crawlies and a few thrills and chills shouldn't be missed."

Shudder's "Creepshow" series will return for a new season in 2021.
