There are so many Christmas horror movies already (see a few here, here, here, and here), but I always say the more the merrier! So I am ecstatic that we are getting four more holiday horrors this season. And they all look incredible, ranging in tone from a zombie musical to an anthology to kick-ass cosplayers fighting against Krampus to a fuzzy possession tale. A little something for everyone, right?!
Check out these 4 new holiday horrors to watch this Christmas season below:
Anna and the Apocalypse - A zombie apocalypse threatens the sleepy town of Little Haven - at Christmas - forcing Anna and her friends to fight, slash and sing their way to survival, facing the undead in a desperate race to reach their loved ones. I've been looking forward to this zombie musical, which garnered so much buzz on the festival circuit, and it was finally released in a limited theatrical run here in the US November 30th, 2018 and is available for pre-order on VOD on Amazon.
All the Creatures Were Stirring - An awkward date on Christmas Eve leads a couple into a strange theater where they are treated to a bizarre and frightening collection of Christmas stories, featuring boring office parties and last-minute shopping, to vengeful stalkers and immortal demons. Rebekah McKendry is a wealth of horror knowledge as a horror writer, professor, and podcaster, but she is also a fierce filmmaker and I cannot wait to see her Christmas anthology film! This will be available streaming on Shudder December 13th, 2018. Blu-ray and DVD will be released January 2019 and are available for pre-order now on Amazon.
Slay Belles - Santa Claus helps three cosplaying girls after they accidentally unleash Krampus. Together, they have to stop the monster before he can continue his killing spree. This horror film looks like a bloody, funny, and action-packed good time! It will be released on VOD and Blu-ray/DVD on December 4th, 2018 and is available for pre-order on Amazon.
Pooka! - The latest in Hulu's Into The Dark holiday horror series, Pooka! is about a struggling actor who gets a seasonal job as a costumed character to help sell the hottest toy at Christmastime, only to discover that the character suit he wears is starting to change him. I have been enjoying Hulu's Into the Dark series, which introduces a new film every month based around a specific holiday. I'm excited to see how this Christmas-themed one turns out! It will premiere on Hulu on December 7th, 2018.
