Nothing says the holidays like felons turned into reindeers while on the run, evil elves and killer carolers on the loose for the residents of Saturn, CA in 12 DEADLY DAYS, a new holiday horror comedy anthology series from the masters of horror at Blumhouse Television.
Featuring 12 twisted tales with top YouTube stars and some of horror’s most seasoned actors, the new series debuts exclusively today on YouTube Red. Check out previews for the first two episodes that launched today below
A Haunting At The End Of The Street is a twisted take on “A Christmas Carol” in which a contemporary Ebenezer Scrooge refuses to reform and hires the Cratchit brothers, a ragtag team of ghost hunters, to exterminate his paranormal visitors. Features YouTube star Meghan Reinks.
Killer Firs follows a young woman (Betty Gabriel) who discovers the family Christmas tree business may be harboring a dark secret after the mysterious death of her estranged father. Also stars Burnie Burns and Troy Pindell.
Over the course of a dozen interconnected tales, the residents of Saturn, CA find themselves terrorized by everything from killer carolers and lovelorn vampires to cursed fruitcakes and haunted Christmas trees.
“We’re honored to be working with Blumhouse, the masters of horror, as we move into more genre programming for YouTube Red, and were excited to pair them with twelve of the best actor-creators on YouTube for ‘12 Deadly Days,” said Tim Shey, Head of Scripted Programming, YouTube Originals. “Viewers are going to be blown away by the storytelling, performances, and dark humor of this series, which is like nothing else out right now.”
