“You better watch out,” warns the poster for Violent Night, an upcoming holiday horror film from Norwegian filmmaker Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow).
David Harbour (Stranger Things) stars as an ass-kicking Santa Claus in the film, which was written by Pat Casey and Josh Miller. The cast also includes Beverly D’Angelo (The Sentinel), Alex Haskell (The Tragedy of Macbeth), Alexis Louder (Watchmen), Edi Patterson (Knives Out), and Cam Gigandet (Twilight).
In Violent Night: “A team of elite mercenaries breaks into a wealthy family compound on Christmas Eve, taking everyone inside hostage. But the team isn’t prepared for a surprise combatant: Santa Claus (Harbour) is on the grounds, and he’s about to show why this Nick is no saint.”
Santa Claus is coming to town when Universal releases Violent Night on December 2nd. We’ll keep our eyes peeled for a trailer to share with you.
