Norwegian filmmaker Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow franchise) continues to add to the already impressive cast for his holiday horror film Violent Night.

In the film, written by Pat Casey and Josh Miller (Sonic), “A team of elite mercenaries breaks into a wealthy family compound on Christmas Eve, taking everyone inside hostage.
