Christmas time is right around the corner, horror lovers! Maybe this year you’re going to visit the family, perhaps you’re going on a trip, or maybe, just maaaybe, you’re going to be drinking spiked egg nog at an Ugly Sweater Party?? Well, that seems to be the plan for writer/director Aaron Mento, who is officially in preproduction for the feature length horror comedy, “Ugly Sweater Party”! This film is being produced by Mento, Charles Chudabala and myself (Hunter Johnson), and we are stoked to bring some serious holiday fear in 2016!
Ugly Sweater Party will be the second feature film from Mento & Ocular Migraine Productions, who entered the scene with his thought provoking horror comedy “Standards of Living.” Recently, he created the popular horror web series “Choose Their Kill,” partnered with CryptTV. Now he’s back with a frosty new vision of Christmas terror! We’ve been quietly working on this film for some time, and now that we are officially gearing up to film, we had to share! Here’s the logline:
An ugly sweater party turns into a bloodbath when an evil Christmas sweater possesses one of the partygoers…
Starring in the film is horror scream queen Felissa Rose, Tiffani Fest, Lara Jean Mummert, Marv Blauvelt, Matt Holbrook, Chudabala and myself…along with some other familiar faces to be announced very soon! The film will be shot by Paul Stephen Edwards.
If you enjoy “R” rated horror loaded with GORE, demonic psycho killers, blood thirsty revenge and plenty of ugly sweaters, then for the sake of Jesus’ birthday keep up with our project! We’ll keep you up to date on everything happening with this film right here on LAHorror.com, but give us an early Christmas present and follow “Ugly Sweater Party” on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram! Everyone’s invited to the party!
