We jump forward a year, and she’s wracked with guilt, and she’s unable to move on, and in her spiral she ends up making this wish that maybe things would be better if she didn’t exist. She wakes up into a nightmare version of [Angel Falls] and there’s many more people dead, and it’s up to her to solve this mystery before it’s too late. — director Tyler MacIntyre to EW.

Killer Mayer:

I’ve been a huge fan of Justin [Long}’s work for many years . . .I was looking for a big Christmas villain. We talked about a lot of references of showman-politicians, and that sort of baby boomer-smarminess, and he was channeling some of that.
