Christmas is coming early this year! Cinema Epoch is proud to announce the release of the new comedy film “A Christmas Invitation” on the TUBI streaming platform. Available to watch now, the TV-PG rated film was written and directed by Massachusetts filmmaker Geno McGahee and produced by Cinema Epoch, Cineridge Entertainment and Xposse Productions.

“I wanted to make a film that touches home. Growing up in a dysfunctional family gave me the right start for this production and I think everyone who watches this will stick with it one way or another,” writer and director Geno McGahee said during the broadcast of “A Christmas Invitation” to global audiences.

Lasting 1 hour and 41 minutes, the film tells the story of a dysfunctional family brought together by a dying wish and an invitation to one last family holiday party. Old family feuds and skeletons in the closet — plus a healthy dose of unexpected twists — make “A Christmas Invitation” a wholesome treat for holiday movie time.

Otherwise known for acclaimed horror films such as Rise of the Scarecrows: Hell On Earth and Scary Tales: Last Stop, McGahee changed genres for the film: “For the first time, I put my horror mind on hiatus to bring some holiday cheer,” the director told his Twitter followers.

Set for worldwide release on major streaming platforms before the end of 2022, “A Christmas Invitation” stars Brent Northup (Sickle), Eric Michaelian (Cowboy and the Tavern), Lorrie Bacon (Rise Of The Scarecrows: Hell On Earth), Phil Godeck (Super Duper Heist Squad), Matt Hebert (Rise Of The Scarecrows: Hell On Earth), Jesse Delta Ariel Waegelein-Hall (REVENGE), Aaron Schacht, Sharon Marr, Rick Caride, Nat Cook, Angela Taylor, Pawel Watracz, Rosie Andlauer, Zoe Wells, Lisa J. Coleman, Martin DuPlessis, Pete Baez, and Tom Hebert.

“A Christmas Invitation” was filmed in Western Massachusetts and Hampstead, New Hampshire, with support from local businesses and police departments.
