Christmas Evil (1980)


Out Now on DVD. Arrow. Certificate: 15.

Excessive weight gain, a rise in domestic violence, and alcoholism justified by a Santa hat. As geographical brother Neville John Holder would say, “It’s CHRIIIISSSSTTMAAASS!” And just as this festive time would not be complete without the glam Wolvo warblers on every damn radio station, horror fans are not content without a release of some lurid Chrimbo pudding. So here we have the deliciously half-baked Christmas Evil, fruity to its nutty core.
