We have a couple of horror posters to show you today. First up is festive horror A Christmas Story, and after that the latest Giallo horror titled Francesca.
A Christmas Story:
Directed by Steven Hoban (Darknet), Grant Harvey (She Made Me Do It), and Brett Sullivan (Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed), the film stars William Shatner (“Star Trek”) and George Buza (X-Men).
CHRISTMAS: a time of joy, peace, and goodwill, unless you happen to live in the town of Bailey Downs. Here, on Christmas Eve, joy is corrupted when a malevolent spirit traps three teens in a school basement intent on recreating a twisted version of the Nativity story. Peace is shattered when a family returns from a snowy forest with the perfect Christmas tree, only to find something is terrifyingly wrong with their seven-year-old son. And goodwill is perverted when a not-so-nice family is hunted down by Krampus, the demonic anti-Santa Claus of Nordic mythology. Even Santa Claus himself is drawn into the horror when he has to fight off a horde of howling zombie elves before making his rounds. This Christmas the creatures are stirring, and they’re coming for you whether you’re naughty or nice.
A CHRISTMAS HORROR STORY was produced by Copperheart Entertainment’s Steve Hoban (Splice) and Mark Smith (388 Arletta Avenue) and executive produced by David Hayter (“World War III”). Mark Ward of RLJ Entertainment negotiated the deal with Paradigm Talent Agency on behalf of the filmmakers.
Francesca, directed by Luciano and Nicolas Onetti will have its world premiere at the Stiges Film Festival.

Francesca seems to have returned, but she is not be the same girl who everyone knew…
