Director Steven LaMorte is out to re-invent the Christmas holiday classic as a blood-red slasher horror gore-fest. With David (Art the Clown in Terrifier) Howard Thornton in the title role, you know the Grue-Crew are excited to catch this one. Check out the trailer below for THE MEAN ONE and make plans for December 9, 2022.
“Atlas Film Distribution will release Steven LaMorte’s outrageous slasher parody, THE MEAN ONE, in U.S. cinemas on December 9th. A recent announcement of the film instantly turned it into a viral sensation, with mentions of the movie appearing everywhere from The Drew Barrymore Show to Fox News.
In the audacious new parody, The Mean One (David Howard Thornton) is a hairy, green-skinned grump in a Santa suit, living on a mountain high above the town of Newville, despising the holiday season. Young Cindy You-Know-Who (Krystle Martin), whose parents were butchered by The Mean One twenty Christmases earlier, is returning to town to seek closure… but when the Mean One launches a new reign of terror that threatens to destroy Christmas, Cindy finds a bold new purpose – trapping and killing the monster.
In THE MEAN ONE, David Howard Thornton (TERRIFIER 2‘s Art the Clown) further cements his presence in horror history with this newly-iconic slasher villain. Holiday aficionados who think they know The Mean One are in for a very big surprise.”
