The Advent Calendar to Christmas

By RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies

Tis the season. For the most popular holiday all year, Christmas-themed horror movies are incredibly lacking. Sure we have a few gems, but not as a whole. Any time that we get to add a new Christmas movie to the Christmas horror list, we are happy. 

This December, Shudder trims the tree this year with a new psychological terror, The Advent Calendar. This Christmas tale brings us claustrophobia and deals with a paraplegic at Christmas and her solitude.

The synopsis for The Advent Calendar:

Eva (Eugénie Derouand), an ex-dancer, is now using a wheelchair, unable to walk. When her friend Sophie (Honorine Magnier) 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.

The Advent Calendar arrives on Shudder Dec. 2.
