Artsploitation Films has acquired US rights from international sales agent Devilworks for the Australian horror film Red Christmas, directed by veteran television director/producer Craig Anderson. The dark, violent, and sickly twisted tale had its World Premiere at the Sydney Film Festival, its North American Premiere at Fantasia Festival and its European Premiere at London’s Frightfest.
The film stars (and was co-produced by) horror film acting legend, Dee Wallace (The Hills Have Eyes, The Howling, E.T., Cujo, Critters, Halloween, The Lords of Salem) as the 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 go from petty insults to bloody, imaginatively orchestrated violence as Wallace attempts to protect her family from the vengeful intruder. The film deliriously infuses comedy and dark family secrets with outlandish gore, and adds the always controversial subject of abortion in its blood-stained mix.
Artsploitation Films president Ray Murray says, “We are excited to release this over-the-top, deliriously entertaining genre film. With its odd anti-abortion angle, it could very well be the first horror film of the Trump era!”
Devilworks president Matteo Rolleri remarks, “We are thrilled to be working with Artsploitation and couldn’t think of anyone better to release such a striking exploitation film! Red Christmas sits among the classics; it is kinetic, untamed, and saturated in gore.”
