The Killing Tree is for Krampus fans


The tree that kills was originally filmed as Demonic Christmas Tree, and with a name like that, it’s clear from the start that the filmmakers have come up with an incredibly interesting idea.

This film will now head to theaters after garnering enough interest online with its bizarre premise. Frake-Waterfield also plans to make another film with a similar idea that puts a horror film about Peter Pan.

But for now, The tree that kills can be seen from the independent filmmaker.
