Thanksgiving has come and gone, hopefully you're all stuffed and recovering from blissful food comas. Holiday horror is kicking into high gear, and Shudder is delivering a new Christmas horror to feast upon, Patrick Ridremont’s The Advent Calendar. The rules are simple: eat all the candy, respect the rules through the last door, don't dump the candy. And most importantly... break the rules and die. Just who will be enforcing these rules? Well, we've got a sneak peek for you, and let's just say... we won't be breaking any Advent Calendar rules this holiday season. Check out the official synopsis:
Eva (Eugénie Derouand, Paris Police 1900), an ex-dancer, is now using a wheelchair, unable to walk. When her friend Sophie (Honorine Magnier, Tomorrow is Ours) gives her an old wooden antique advent calendar before Christmas, she realizes each window contains a surprise that triggers repercussions in real life. Some of them are good, but most of them are bad, really bad. Now Eva will have to choose between getting rid of the calendar or walking again – even if it causes death and destruction to everyone she holds dear around her.
How far are you willing to go for a Christmas miracle, and what (or whom) are you willing to trade in the process? The Advent Calendar is streaming exclusively on Shudder, December 2, 2021.
