It has been announced that Justin Long, Michael Parks, Haley Joel Osment and Genesis Rodriguez in his holiday horror flick ANTI-CLAUS, which for a while was being referred to as COMES THE KRAMPUS. Take a look at a rough rendering of the character that is being used for the film below.

Anti-Claus tells the tale of the centuries-old, devil-like creature known the world-over as the Krampus the Anti-Claus of Alpine country folklore, infamous for eating naughty children during the season of giving.

Said Smith about the project:

When I was a kid, if they wanted to make a Christmas horror movie, theyd stick an axe in Santas hands In Anti-Claus, we leave Santa alone and creep with the Krampus through twisted tales of holly-jolly murder, desire, desperation and despair. Just in time for the holiday season.

Jordan Monsanto, Andy McElfresh and Jennifer Schwalbach are producing Anti-Claus for Smiths SModcast Pictures, while "Jay" himself Jason Mewes will executive produce.

XYZ Films will launch the project to foreign buyers at the upcoming Cannes film market. Principal photography begins in September.
