David Howard Thornton, the award-winning actor who plays Art the Clown in the hugely popular Terrifier movies, stars as THE MEAN ONE, a gruesome grouch in a Santa suit who is intent on causing Christmas carnage. Directed by Steven LaMorte (Bury Me Twice), THE MEAN ONE also stars Krystle Martin as Cindy, who takes on the Christmas killer with a baseball bat wrapped in tree lights (you better watch out Mean One, Martin is a trained stunt woman!).
Like recent horror hit Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey, THE MEAN ONE is another buzzy slasher mixing mirth, murder and all-out action in equal measure, as the townsfolk decide to take on the green meanie with all the weapons they can lay their hands on. Already a viral sensation (over 5 million people have watched the trailer online) THE MEAN ONE is a Christmas horror film that’s sure to become a seasonal fave, and a stocking chiller without equal.
In a sleepy mountain town, Cindy’s parents are murdered and her Christmas is stolen by a bloodthirsty green figure in a red Santa suit. 20 years later, Cindy returns to town with one goal—trapping and destroying The Mean One.
