After premiering at last July’s Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal, Artsploitation Films acquired Red Christmas (read our review), directed by Craig Anderson, for release later this summer. To get you hyped, we have a brand new official trailer to go with a huge batch of imagery.
The movie stars The Hills Have Eyes, The Howling, E.T., Critters, Halloween, The Lords of Salem and Cujo’s Dee Wallace as well as Geoff Morrell, Sarah Bishop, and Janis McGavin.
Patrick Cooper reviewed Red Christmas out of last year’s Fantasia premiere, calling it “the aborted fetus slasher you always wanted.”
“A troubled matriarch must defend her family when a mysterious stranger turns up at her secluded country mansion on Christmas day. A day of celebration becomes a night of terror, as the stranger reveals a secret from the family’s past, and threatens to destroy their future.”
The US premiere of the film and the initial festival run will be announced in the coming weeks while the limited theatrical run is scheduled for August and DVD/Blu-ray and VOD scheduled for October.
