Cynics of the nation rejoice! A feature length Christmas Special of BLACK MIRROR, bile-spewing comedic hatemonger Charlie Brooker’s series of quasi-sci-fi satirical one-shots, has been announced.

Featuring a trio of intertwining tales, Brooker has described the film as a mix of a Christmas ghost story and Amicus’s horror compendiums (anthology films such as TALES FROM THE CRYPT or THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD), while Channel 4’s Head of Comedy Phil Clarke described it as “satirical, comic, disturbing, and thought provoking. Not to be missed.”

Although no plot details have been released, all six standalone episodes of the two seasons were bound by the concept of treating technological development as an addictive drug, one which society’s ever-increasing dependence on was satiated at the expense of our humanity, so we can likely expect more of the same. Except, y’know, Christmassy.
