Christmas Slasher is a new feature-length horror film written and directed by Destiny Soria, owner of Lady Destiny Productions.
When a couple of college kids decide to go on a hunting trip for their Christmas break, they get more than they bargained for when their past comes back to haunt them. An undead reindeer has set Mr and Mrs Claus on a murderous rampage of revenge – with the entire group as their target.
As the group struggles to stay alive and figure out what put them on Santa’s murder list, feelings run high and love triangles are revealed. However, it will take more than love and Christmas cheer to stop the killing. During a fight for survival, the question remains – who killed Rudolph?
Christmas Slasher, which has been approved as a sag feature film project, brings a horror twist to classic characters including Santa Claus, Rudolph, and Mrs Claus while also adding a psychological element to the mix. The main character, Alita Claus, becomes not only the sole witness but also a murder suspect and the audience are left questioning exactly how much of what they see is real.
Trailer + Q&A with Christmas Slashers’ Director Destiny Soria below.
Rabbit: After watching the teaser trailer for Christmas Slasher, I’m stoked to see the film! What can we expect from this holiday horror flick?
Destiny Soria: A lot of gory death scenes! From the beginning to the end!
Rabbit: How’d you come up with the concept of the film?
DS: I had a dream about it and I love Halloween and Christmas films, especially the clay animation Rudolph from 1964. I wanted to cross them both into one unique and original horror movie where Rudolph becomes a bad reindeer. An evil reindeer zombie/monster.
Rabbit: There are a number of Christmas slasher films out there. Do you have any favourites? How does Christmas Slasher differ from what we’ve already seen?
DS: 2015’s A Christmas Horror Story is my fav! We are bringing a new monster to Christmas horror, and he’s not playing any Reindeer games ;).
Rabbit: I love that you have horror icon, Felissa Rose, as part of the cast! What was it like working with her?
DS: She is so nice and down to earth. She helped me a lot as a new filmmaker and offered so much guidance. I adore her very much. I was very blessed to have her on board.
Rabbit: I understand you’re still filming. What’s been your favourite part of the production process so far?
DS: Being on set and getting to do the kill scenes with the monsters!
Rabbit: Excited to see those scenes come to life! When can we expect the film to be released and where can we watch it?
DS: In 2021 around the holidays. We are hoping for distribution during that time. Fingers crossed!
