Seeking shelter from a blizzard during Christmastime, two hikers (played by Scout Taylor-Compton and Connor Paolo) get more than they bargained for when they break into the house of a mother (Chrissy Metz) and her daughter (Annalise Basso), who are harboring a transformative—and deadly—secret in the new (and very aptly named) holiday horror film A Creature Was Stirring.

An eerily unpredictable and intensely entertaining gift for horror fans to unwrap this holiday season, A Creature Was Stirring is coming to theaters on December 8th and Digital on December 12th via Well Go USA.

In a new video interview, Daily Dead had the great pleasure of catching up with star Scout Taylor-Compton and director Damien LeVeck to discuss the making of their ambitious new movie, from Shannon Wells' impressive script and the movie's exploration of damaging addictions to bringing the film's haunting creature to life with palpable practical effects and working with Chrissy Metz on her first horror film!
