Earlier today, Ted Geoghegan (Mohawk, We Are Still Here) posted on Twitter: “Creator and curator Beck Underwood has gathered together 25 amazing filmmakers, and tasked each of them with making a Christmas-based horror short. The films will debut online, one a day, from December 1st through the 25th as a digital Advent calendar.”
He went on to name Jenn Wexler (The Ranger), Glenn McQuaid (I Sell The Dead), Graham Reznick (Deadwax), Mickey Keating (Darling), Joe Maggio (Bitter Feast), James Felix McKenney (Hypothermia), and JT Petty (The Burrowers) as some of the filmmakers that will be participating in this awesome event! Check out the announce trailer HERE and to see the full list of participating filmmakers. I’ve never been a big fan of Christmas horror, but I can’t not be excited about this. Glass Eye Pix and its founder, Larry Fessenden, has produced some of my all time favorite horror films like, Stake Land, Late Phases, The Last Winter, Wendigo, The House of the Devil, Innkeepers, and Habit, just to name a few.
Glass Eye Pix (“one of the indie scene’s most productive and longest-running companies” —Filmmaker Magazine) is the fierce independent NYC-based production outfit headed by art-horror auteur Larry Fessenden (BENEATH, ABC’s of DEATH 2, NBC’s Fear Itself, THE LAST WINTER, WENDIGO, HABIT, NO TELLING). Glass Eye Pix is responsible for narrative films, documentaries, books, comics, audio plays, and other unique work designed to inspire and contrast with corporate media. Fessenden (winner of the Someone to Watch Spirit Award) has operated the company since 1985, with the mission of supporting individual voices in the arts.
