Just as director Kevin Smith has wrapped up his human centipede like horror, Tusk, he has announced that he will be continuing in the horror genre with Anti-Claus.
He has also taking some of the cast from Tusk, namely Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez and Michael Parks.
This is what Smith said about the film: “When I was a kid, if they wanted to make a Christmas horror movie, they’d stick an axe in Santa’s hands. In Anti-Claus we leave Santa alone and creep with the Krampus through twisted tales of holly-jolly murder, desire, desperation and despair. Just in time for the holiday season. In America, we’re taught that nice kids gets presents from Santa and naughty kids get coal. But in countries like Germany, Austria, Bavaria, Romania and Hungary, Christmas is more metal than merry: Saint Nicholas brings a sack full of toys for good kids and the Krampus carries an empty bag for taking away the bad kids. I wanna see THAT Christmas movie. So rather than wait for it, we’ll make it instead.”
Robert Kurtzman (Cabin Fever, Late Phases) will create the Krampus and filming starts in September.
More on this as it comes.
