    • Christmas Apparition: A Ghost Story
      As Emma works to create a beautiful Christmas for the children she is looking after, the warm glow of the Christmas tree and the sparkling of the ornaments are in stark contrast with the hostility of the children in their freezing house.

      The serendipity that landed Emma with a place to stay over the holidays turns out to be less of a blessing as the holidays progress.

      As Emma’s anxiety grows, strange shadows start appearing, turning into creatures in the realm where reality and dreams merge.

      Overwrought, Emma’s fear and crumbling grip on reality edges into her dreams, blurring her daily anxiety attacks with visions of a foreboding stranger in the house.

      The unsettling connection between her nightmares and the eerie truth of this family lead her to confront the terror that comes from somewhere much graver than her own mind. 

      With the truth revealed, this suspenseful and intense story culminates in a happy ending like all good Christmas movies should.
