A Perfect Recipe Combining the Art of Filmmaking and Journalism

By Ashley Mathews


The art of filmmaking and journalism combined makes childhood nightmares momentous. Judyth Piazza who is an award-winning journalist and founder of The Student Operated Press makes her second film debut with her 13-year-old daughter, Hillary Joines in the horror film, Krampus. Joines is the host of “Your World Now,” a popular news podcast for and

The film, Krampus directed by, Christian Cisneros is set to be released sometime this year. The film tells the story of an Austrian woman in her thirties living in America who is disturbed by childhood nightmares, which she tries to face by looking into her past. With little memory of her childhood, she puts the pieces together by traveling to her homeland.

In the Black forest of Austria, the woman encounters an evil Austrian legend in which she must save her family from. On her journey, she learns that people are watched from birth and held accountable for their actions. She also discovers that her nightmares are warnings.

Written by fellow SOP writer, Amanda Carver, Krampus promises to be a visceral, twister fairytale with a through the roof fear factor.

Joining Judyth and Hillary on the star cast will be veteran actor Brad Milne, Alana Milne, “Dead Body Guy” Chuck Lamb, the dynamic Singapore-based duo, Linda Black and Oli Pettigrew, scary-guy Joe Barbarisi of Risen, and Lee Vervoort of The Deepening.
