A CHRISTMAS HORROR STORY: RLJ Entertainment Finds U.S. Rights In Their Stockings
We are a couple days away from the sold out World Premiere of the Canadian horror flick A Christmas Horror Story at the Fantasia Int'l Film Festival on July 20th. Word was just delivered by magic reindeer that the U.S. rights have just been acquired by RLJ Entertainment. 

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.

The film was 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). The deal was negotiated by Mark Ward, RLJ's Chief Acquisitions Officer. 

"A CHRISTMAS HORROR STORY brings a scary twist to the traditional Christmas tale," said Ward. "With the legendary William Shatner and horribly fantastic creatures, genre fans will never see this happy holiday the same way again."

"We are so happy that Mark Ward and his helper elves at RLJ Entertainment, are releasing this film in the US," said Hoban.  "We couldn't have hoped for better accomplices in our efforts to bring terrifying fun to the holidays."

We have included a clip from A Christmas Horror Story so the audience in Montreal can see what they are in store for.
