Over 20 years later, Adam Marcus returns to horror with a new film.
Not to be confused with the 2015 horror movie of the same name, Jason Goes to Hell director Adam Marcus’ Secret Santa is coming down the chimney soon, centered on a family Christmas party where the blood flows as freely as the subtle jabs.
They’re not the Voorhees family, but the Popes may be just as dysfunctional!
In Secret Santa…
“The holidays are a time for backstabbing and silent, annihilating judgment; but for the Pope family the time-honored tradition of passive-aggressive snark is always masked with a smile. But not this year. April Pope, the family’s golden child, is clean and sober and working her twelve steps. She has a new life and an amazing boyfriend, and she’s ready to make amends with her sister, Penny, for a horrible prank she pulled on her when they were in high school. April figures her mother, Shari’s, Christmas Eve party, complete with Secret Santa game, will be the perfect moment for forgiveness. Her gift and act of confession will help heal the tensions of all her loved ones.
But there’s someone else with a different idea…
The Popes run one of the country’s largest pharmaceutical companies, and someone’s going to give them a taste of their own medicine. Literally. And with a military grade truth serum spiking the holiday punch, anyone who has a cup will lose their mask of civility. And before they know it, saying what they wanted to say turns into doing what they want to do; and the holiday table soon runs red. It’s a Christmas massacre as those who haven’t drunk the punch try to control the ones who have. This year the truth doesn’t hurt… it kills!
