Get ready to celebrate all holidays at once with new anthology Holidays, recently acquired by Vertical Entertainment and XYZ films, in a partnership deal for global distribution. The film takes whistle-stop tour through America’s favourite holidays, with a mighty impressive list of directors contributing to the festivities.
While it’s not yet announced which holidays each director is representing, the directors involved are Kevin Smith (continuing his horror reinvention), Anthony Scott Burns (visual effects on The Last Exorcism Part II), Matt Johnson (The Dirties), Starry Eyes duo Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, Nicholas McCarthy (The Pact), Adam Egypt Mortimer (Some Kind of Hate), Gary Shore (Dracula Untold), Sarah Adina Smith (The Midnight Swim) and Scott Stewart (Dark Skies).
The respective tales challenge and deconstruct established traditions associated with the various celebrations, as hinted at in this gloriously manic trailer.
Holidays’ world premiere will be at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival on April 14th. Vertical and XYZ will then arrange a global day-and-date release, beginning on April 15th for worldwide digital and VOD platforms followed by a targeted US theatrical release on April 22nd.
