CHRISTMAS EVE

Written by Sean H. Stewart
Directed by Chelsea Stardust
Produced by Rudy Scalese

Original Release Date: Part One November 21st, 2017

December 24th, 1959. It’s Christmas time at the offices of BB&H Insurance, and you are cordially invited to attend their annual holiday party. The festivities promise to include plenty of fun, games, even a little romance. The decorations are up and the invitations are out… But there’s one guest who definitely wasn’t on the list… An axe wielding maniac known only as the Herald Angel Killer, a crazed lunatic who has been plaguing the city, slaughtering unsuspecting victims. Now, the employees of BB&H are set to receive the yuletide surprise of their lives as this grim party crasher prepares to come in from the snow, ready to start whittling away at the corporate ladder with his blood-spattered blade. So, have a drink. Grab a smoke. And get ready to lose your head on this nightmarish “Christmas Eve.”

EARBUD THEATER

 

Audio Dramas of the Strange and Unusual

 

Since 2012, the denizens of the underground Earbud Theater Lair have been delivering strange sonic tales of monsters, aliens, and the terror that might be under your own roof. Our world is full of entertainment, but how much of it truly inspires the imagination? Earbud Theater is run by veterans of the film and television business in Hollywood who set out to show that you could stimulate minds without big budgets and eye candy. They must have been mad to try. MAD.

So dim the lights, turn up the volume. Close your eyes – unless you’re driving. If you’re driving, stop reading this now. Really. Are the drivers gone? Good. Everyone else, use the buttons above to start one of our podplays. Or take a look at the Earblog and learn a little about who we are and what we do. But not about our plans for world conquest. Oh no, you’ll never learn about those…

Let us tell you a story. And if you find yourself wondering, or worrying, or just staring at our strange world from newly un-scaled eyes, just remember – it’s all in your head…
