Filming for a quirky Christmas movie is underway in downtown Galt this week.

The film, being called Letters to Satan Claus by the production company, was supposed to be filmed in March, according to the city of Cambridge.

The city has served as a location for high-profile shoots in recent years, including The Handmaid's Tale and Murdoch Mysteries. Filming is expected to ramp back up as the process of reopening continues.

"Letters is a tongue-in-cheek take on Christmas movies with a dark twist, however the sentiment that love conquers all plays a central theme in this project," the city announced in a filming notification.

Some horror elements that could be disturbing to some, will be expected in the area of Main Street, the city said.

On Wednesday afternoon, crew members could be spotted setting up Christmas trees, mannequins and candy cane decorations on a short stretch of Main Street.

An IMDB page for the movie says it will star actors Karen Knox, Miriam McDonald and Juno Rinaldi.

Filming is set to take place Wednesday and Thursday in the afternoon and evening, with all set dressing to be taken down by Friday at 5:00 p.m.
