On the twenty fifth day of Christmas, Glass Eye Pix gave to me the gift that keeps on giving, wrapping up the fest with “Happy Horror Days”.
The 2018 Creepy Christmas Film Fest from Beck Underwood and NYC-based production company Glass Eye Pix wraps up 25 days of holiday horror with a very special holiday message for horror fans and the many incredible supporters of Glass Eye Pix and indie genre filmmaking.
I can’t think of a better way to end than with this wonderful tribute, from Sydney Clara Brafman, to the team behind a festival that has gifted horror fans with 25 days of the most clever, creepy, exceedingly creative shorts from more than 25 groundbreaking filmmakers, musicians and artists — ranging from the best emerging talent to icons of indie horror.
Beginning December 1st all the way through to Christmas Day, the Creepy Christmas Film Fest highlighted one original horror short a day from talented and up-and-coming filmmakers. In a similar vein to the highly creative horror anthology film ABCs of Death, each filmmaker was given a holiday-themed prompt to inspire their short film. Go here to check out all of this year’s films.
Prompted by the word ORNAMENT, Brafman explains the inspiration for her fitting fest finale:
“Being asked to whisk up a closing film and Holiday greeting for Glass Eye Pix, using the prompt, ORNAMENT, I was inspired by the annual winter party: every guest is invited to bring an ornament for the ritualistic tree. I decided to turn Glass Eye into a tree itself, with cute and creepy gifts to share, ornaments brought by all, and a darling angel (devil?) overseeing it all.”
“On behalf of Glass Eye Pix, have a happy Horror-day!”
