It's not even Halloween and we've already got some Christmas horror news to share with you... Blasphemy, right?
Way back in 2014, the folks at Vinegar Syndrome brought Lewis Jackson's yuletide slasher film, Christmas Evil, to Blu-ray here in the US. Of course, that release is long out of print, but we've now learned that the UK based distributor 88 Films will soon be releasing the film as a part of their "Slasher Classic Collection".
Widely recognized as the best of the Christmas horror efforts, Christmas Evil is the story of a boy who loves Christmas. He is scarred as a boy when he learns that Santa is not real. Throughout the rest of his life, the toy-maker tries to make the Christmas spirit a reality. He becomes obsessed with the behavior of children and the quality of the toys he makes. When he is met with hypocrisy and cynicism, the resulting snap causes him to go on a yuletide killing spree to complete this dark comedic horror.
Bonus features and other info regarding the Blu-ray release have yet to be announced, but we do know that it's street dated for December 9th and is currently up for pre-order from Amazon.
Stay tuned for more updates!
