Based on a short story that originally appeared on The Nosleep Podcast on Christmas, 2017, TINSEL is a festive tale of suburban terror that puts a campy, gory, and uniquely Australian spin on the animated Christmas special. When a group of hardware store employees notice their boss seems to be getting a little too excited for Christmas, their annoyance turns to terror as the store decorations turn out to have a mind of their own. Trapped and isolated, the survivors must use their strength, wits, and a plethora of power tools to escape with their lives and stop a potentially world-ending catastrophe. Equal parts horror and comedy, Tinsel is a joyous throwback to the classic creature features of the 70's and 80's.
