If you've ever wondered why your neighbors really get into the holiday spirit every December, then you'll relate to the main character of the new Christmas short horror film Humbug, which is now available to watch right here on Daily Dead. And if you do relate to the central character, hopefully your neighbors aren't hiding a holiday secret like the one unwrapped in this horror short, or else you should be extra careful the next time carolers come knocking at your door.

Directed by Matt Thiesen and Justin Lee, and starring Jessee Foudray and Milly Sanders, Humbug has currently screened at 16 film festivals, and you can unwrap the holiday horror short film in its entirety below. You may never look at eggnog the same way again after watching it...

Synopsis: "A moody goth girl (Scarlet) deep in the throes of artistic creation is interrupted by her neighbor’s incessant Christmas music. When Scarlet confronts her cheery, pressed and perfect neighbor (Betty) she finds out looks can be deceiving, and to never underestimate the power of Christmas cheer."
