Dark Christmas: horror comedy stars Nicholas Brendon, Corey Sevier, Bee Vang

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Nicholas Brendon, Immortals' Corey Sevier, and Gran Torino's Bee Vang have signed on to star in writer/director Daric Loo's indie horror-comedy Dark Christmas. The film will follow 

Jack (Vang) and feisty stripper Ava, who are trapped inside a storage facility with a sorceress, a mage knight and a psychopath on Christmas Eve. They must save the world against a mythic demon that has been released from one of the storage units. 

Brendon is taking on the role of Larry, "a disgruntled co-worker of the storage facility". Sevier's character is Bathazar, "the handsome and powerful partner of the sorceress".

Vang had this to say about the project: 

I’m excited to be starring in the first Asian American horror comedy feature Dark Christmas and working with rising director Daric Loo. Jack Chang is the first Hmong leading role created in cinematic history, and I look forward to inhabit Jack, who treads between horror and comedy."

Loo added: 

I’m very excited to work with Bee on Dark Christmas. Seeing his dramatic performance in Gran Torino, his comedic range in Comisery and talking with him in person, I’m convinced he has the perfect balance of emotional depth, intelligence and comedic chops to be the leading man in our film. I’m looking forward to creating magic with him on screen to delight and entertain audiences."

Dark Christmas is being produced by Margin Films' Quentin Lee.

The mixture of characters mentioned in the synopsis makes this sound like a fun time to me. I look forward to seeing how it turns out.
