Kevin Smith doesn’t have a lot of directorial efforts on his upcoming slate — in fact, he says he’s retiring from directing — but as a producer he’s keeping very busy indeed. One of the projects coming up for his Smodcast Pictures label is Miss December, formerly known as Calendar Girl, which is due out later this week.

The Derek Lindeman-directed film explores the horrific side of romance, or perhaps it’s the romantic side of horror, through the tale of a serial killer who’s been picking off one woman per month. Waitress Ari (Jensen Bucher) becomes convinced she’ll be the next and last victim, and in an odd twist, becomes infatuated with her deadly secret admirer. Brian O’Haloran (Clerks), Corbin Bernsen, and Gilbert Gottfried also star. Check out the trailer and get details on the release after the jump.
