*Updated with new photo FEARnet just sent us of the Crypt Keeper getting ready for his new year’s party* FEARnet has announced their holiday programming schedule, which includes the premiere of the Holliston Christmas Special and a Tales from the Crypt marathon hosted by the Crypt Keeper:
“HOLLISTON” Holiday Marathon, Featuring the Premiere of the “Holliston Christmas Special” – Tuesday, December 18 (3:30 p.m.-9 p.m. ET/12:30 p.m.-6 p.m. PT)
“FEARnet’s hit series “Holliston” returns with a brand new one-hour Christmas special and a season 1 marathon to whet viewers’ appetites for the premiere of season 2 in June. Get caught up with all the “Holliston” hijinks as Adam, Joe, Laura and Corri deal with life, love, and Lance Rockett (Dee Snider), while having run-ins with genre legends Kane Hodder, Tony Todd and John Landis, and receiving sincere-yet-terrible advice from GWAR’s Oderus Urungus, who lives in Adam’s closet.
Directly following the marathon at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, the most wonderful time of the year quickly turns into “Black Christmas,” when a blizzard strikes the town of Holliston, trapping Adam, Joe, Corri and Laura inside with no power in the “Holliston Christmas Special.” To make matters worse, a crazed serial killer has just escaped and is said to be lurking somewhere in the area. Fearing for their lives and having nothing but flashbacks to entertain them, the gang reminisces about the moments in their lives that brought them all together. Derek Mears (Friday the 13th) guest stars.”
