A ferociously festive trailer has been released for Once Upon a Time at Christmas and it shows a couple of Santa Claus killers going on a reign of terror, making a small town a place filled with fear and paranoia.
Meet Santa and Mrs. Claus: he’s a one-eyed fiend, she’s a curvy, bat-swinging blonde. This serial-killer couple is terrorising the holidays in an upstate New York town with a series of horrific homicides. Though the victims seem random — a mall Santa, a smooching couple, an innocent family — high-schooler Jennifer and clever cop Sam begin to unravel the sinister pattern behind the slayings. Can they stop the murders before Christmas comes — and there’s no one left to celebrate?
It looks like it could be a barmy and fun ride that is filled with appropriately festive frights, reminding us that Halloween doesn’t have to be the scariest time of the year.
Once Upon a Time at Christmas stars Simon Phillips, Sayla de Goede, Brook Fletcher, Barry Kennedy, Jeff Ellenberger and Devon Mary Doherty and will be released on 12th December on DVD.
