Xmas brings terrifying ‘Good Tidings’

by Phil Wheat

Two-Headed Snake Entertainment have announced that pre-production is underway on the upcoming Christmas themed horror/thriller Good Tidings, which is set to shoot on a location in a disused courthouse (the first time ever the location hs been used for such purposes) in Southport, Merseyside; and is due for release Christmas 2016.

Written and conceived by horror enthusiasts Stu Jopia, Stuart W. Bedford and Giovanni Gentile, who recently penned this years zombie action thriller Apocalypse and next year’s monster fuelled H.P Lovecraft inspired horror anthology Dark Continents; Good Tidings draws inspiration from genre classics, taking influence from Black Christmas, Halloween, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Silent Night Deadly Night, Assault on Precinct 13, whilst still harkening to the new breed of horror thrillers like You’re Next, The Devils Rejects and The Purge.

Director/Writer Stuart W. Bedford tells us:

We’ve always been fascinated by Exploitation movies. Good Tidings is our love-letter to those phenomenal slashers from the 70’s and 80’s, tied together by a festive satire: Christmas is cruel to the poor.

Adds writer/producer Stu Jopia:

Christmas themed horror movies are my favourite holiday movies, so much festive fun to be had, and a slasher/siege movie featuring three psychopathic killer Santa’s is exactly what Christmas time has been crying out for.

Check out the official synopsis & posters for the film below; and keep your eye out for more coverage of Good Tidings right here on Nerdly:

A homeless war-veteran with a chequered past must rely on a side of himself once thought buried when he and his companions are targeted on Christmas Day by three vicious psychopaths in Santa suits.
