There's no need to wait until Christmas day to open this gift, the horror equivalent of those people that eat all the advent calendar chocolates on December 1st; it's a smorgasbord of chills, thrills and kills.
Deathcember is the ultimate Holiday Horror anthology, a bloodsoaked advent calendar, consisiting of 26 short films from all around the world. Inspired by the cult anthology film series The ABCs of Death, producers Dominic Saxl, Ivo Scheloske and Frank Vogt brought together 26 international directors, from legendary genre veterans to upcoming talents, and even some Soho Horror Fest regulars like Michael Varrati, BJ Colangelo & Sam Wineman. Not to mention more familiar faces on screen than you could believe, from Barbara Crampton to AJ Bowen. Happy horrordays.
