Kevin Smith to make Christmas horror film, Anti-Claus
Kevin Smith is to follow his new horror Tusk with Anti-Claus, starring Justin Long and Michael Parks...
Kevin Smith's film slate is looking just a little busy right about now. He's already got Tusk, a new horror film featuring Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez and Michael Parks heading our way. That's the film that's been inspired by one of his podcasts. Furthermore, he's also said that he's going to be making Clerks III, which he's pushed back slightly, but is still very much an active project.
And now we hear he's got a new horror film to add to his slate: Anti-Claus. This is a Christmas horror movie, and it centres on the story of an age-old devil-esque creature called the Krampus. The Krampus is the Anti-Claus of the film's title, and rather than bringing presents to children come December, it eats the naughty ones instead.
Smith is reuniting the Tusk cast for the film, thus the likes of Justin Long and Haley Joel Osment are on board this one too. Filming on Anti-Claus starts in September.
