Christmas, tototed as a time for sharing, giving, and good will towards man.. has a lot to do with traditions. Inside each and every home lit with twinkling little lights, resides a family with a list of things that must be done, treats that must be baked, carols that must be sung. In Mercy Christmas, we get to see inside one of those houses with the twinkling lights. Only, their tradition is something way more sinister..
Michael Briskett meets the perfect woman and his ideal Christmas dream comes true when she invites him to her family’s holiday celebration. Michael’s dream shatters once he realizes that HE will be the Christmas dinner. Watch an exclusive clip from the film, above.
