What began as a movie about a bunch of holiday-obsessed children has become a nightmare.
The film was initially released in 1995, and since then it’s been in theaters and streaming on Netflix.
Its premise is simple: five kids who are all on a camping trip to visit Santa, all of them have dreams about him.
“The Night before Christmas” follows these kids through their Halloween and Christmas experiences, as they face down the evil and terrifying Nightmare Machine.
There’s no way to predict the fate of the movie, or what kind of movie it might become, because the filmmakers never say.
We’re all in the dark.
They’re not saying what the film will be or what it’s going to be about.
They just do it.
The director, Robert Zemeckis, and screenwriter, Scott Rudin, are no strangers to making a movie that can’t be predicted.
They’ve made many films about the undead, such as The Dead Zone and Dead Alive, but this one is the first time they’ve created a film that they haven’t decided upon beforehand.
In a press release from the film’s website, Zemecker says that they are still in the process of deciding on a story, but that they’re looking for “a story about children living a Christmas nightmare.”
The title The Night Before December is a play on the phrase “The Night After Christmas,” which was used in the original film.
It was originally released in the United States in 1998, and it has since been adapted for many different languages and cultures.
In 2018, the movie was released in Russia, with the original script and cast returning for the remake.
But while the film has never been officially released, the original cast has made the decision to share the film online, which is why you’ll find it online on Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime Video, and other streaming services.
Here are the details on the film, which includes new footage and interviews with the cast and crew, and a synopsis from the official film website.

It’s a pretty big deal, because Zeme and Rudin have done something that most filmmakers simply can’t do.
They don’t have to make up a story or explain a movie to audiences, and they’re free to just keep doing what they want.
For more on this movie, watch:The Night after Christmas is a classic, but it’s not the only one.
It was also adapted into two animated films, a TV series called Night Before the Christmas, and two feature films, Nightmare Party and The Night after the Christmas.

There’s also a reboot of the franchise in 2019.
