In just a few days, my holiday horror audio drama, It Sees You When You’re Sleeping launches, and I am super excited for you to hear it!
It Sees You When You’re Sleeping follows a Christmas-loving single dad who gives in to his daughter’s request for a certain elf toy and finds himself face to face with an evil he could never have imagined.
Inspired by the idea of the Elf on the Shelf doll and its accompanying traditions, this audio drama imagines what might happen if there was more to the toy than felt and plastic. Something more…sinister.
It Sees You When You’re Sleeping is the second part of a trilogy of audio dramas for the holidays that started with last year’s “Saint” Nick and the Big F*ck Up, and will conclude next year. The first episode arrives on November 17, and each of the six remaining 10-15 minute episodes will weekly until the final episode on December 22.
Elves are in the zeitgeist.
Myths and legends about elves were part of the inspiration for It Sees You When You’re Sleeping, and play into the story as it unfolds. But apparently, I am not the only one who has been thinking about elves, as just this week, I saw a trailer for a Danish film called Elves on Netflix. The trailer is just…amazing. Give it a watch.
It reminds me a little of the film Rare Exports, which offers an alternative Santa Claus. Have you seen it?
