Exclusive: Blitzen Trapper&#8217;s Brian Koch Releases Bloody Holiday Short, <i>The Visitor</i>

Brian Adrian Koch does not limit himself to one creative art. When he is not playing the drums for his band Blitzen Trapper, Koch lends his talent to another form of performance by acting and directing his own short films.

Just in time for the holidays, Koch and his friends created the short film The Visitor, a Christmas-themed thriller with a dark twist. It’s a slow-burning, 8-minute clip that stars Koch himself, startled after a late-night intruder enters his house. What follows is a twisted peek at every Christmas-lover’s worst nightmare.

The film was created by and stars Brian Adrian Koch, as well as Wade McCollum, Jen LaMastra and Levi Cecil. Eric D. Johnson of the Fruit Bats crafted the score.
