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.
WHAT THE CRITICS HAVE TO SAY
VARIETY: "An energetic, candy-colored romp through genre tropes that manages to take its subject matter seriously while poking fun at itself at the same time."
RUE MORGUE: "Nothing is sacred to Anderson and setting murderous mayhem on the eponymous holiday is only the beginning of Red Christmas‘ challenge to propriety and good taste.”;
BIRTHDEATHMOVIES: "Anchored by a genuinely great Dee Wallace performance, Red Christmas is a completely bizarre horror film...it enters the realm of perverse fascination."
SCREAM MAGAZINE: "Striking, bold and brilliant; a sure-fire Christmas classic for horror lovers.”
