Holiday-themed horror films have been gaining in popularity the last few years and this year Sony Pictures dips its toes in the pond with THERE’S SOMETHING IN THE BARN – being billed as a horror comedy – the trailer lets us in on all the fun.
The press materials explain:
In this holiday horror comedy, Bill (Martin Starr) moves his American wife Carol (Amrita Acharia) and children Nora (Zoe Winter-Hansen) and Lucas (Townes Bunner) to Norway where he’s inherited a family estate. While Bill dreams of turning the adjourning barn into a bed and breakfast, his family struggles to adapt to Scandinavian life. Lucas discovers a mischievous barn elf from ancient folklore living in the barn with a set of rules the family must follow. When Bill dismisses Lucas’s warnings and fails to follow sacred holiday traditions, the elf plots to get rid of the American intruders at any cost.
