Are you sick of your holidays being filled with cheer and love? Well fret no more, misery seekers! Artsploitation Films has announced the Blu-Ray release of their new Australian indie Red Christmas. This is in addition to established holiday horror classics like Black Christmas and Silent Night, Deadly Night!
Red Christmas stars horror veteran Dee Wallace (The Hills Have Eyes, Cujo, The Howling) and is directed by Craig Anderson in his feature directorial debut (he’d previously only directed television). Wallace stars as…
the stressed-out mother of a squabbling family, gathered together in a remote Outback estate on Christmas Eve. When a mysterious, deformed young man named Cletus appears at their door, things soon change from petty insults to bloody, imaginatively orchestrated violence as Wallace attempts to protect her family from the vengeful intruder. The film deliriously infuses comedy, dark family secrets with outlandish gore and adds the always controversial subject of abortion in its blood-stained mix.
Like my mom always says, ‘nothing like a deformed and murderous man named Cletus to spice up the holiday proceedings’!
Red Christmas will be released on Blu-Ray, DVD, and digital platforms October 17th. Below you can check out the official cover art, stills, and the red band trailer.
