We love some Christmas horror. Any time that we get to add new Christmas titles to our roaster we are very happy. Shudder decks the halls this year with their psychological terror based film, The Advent Calendar. This Christmas horror tale brings on the claustrophobia and deals with a paraplegic that has to deal with the horrors of a road map to Christmas in practical solitude.
The synopsis for The Advent Calendar goes like this:
Eva (Eugénie Derouand, Paris Police 1900), an ex-dancer, is now using a wheelchair, unable to walk. When her friend Sophie (Honorine Magnier, Tomorrow is Ours) gives her an old wooden antique advent calendar before Christmas, she realizes each window contains a surprise that triggers repercussions in real life. Some of them are good, but most of them are bad, really bad. Now Eva will have to choose between getting rid of the calendar or walking again – even if it causes death and destruction to everyone she holds dear around her.
The Advent Calendar arrives on Shudder Dec. 2.
