Artsploitation Films Aquires Red Christmas
Controversial Abortion-Themed Horror Film Red Christmas Set for Genre Festivals and Theatrical before DVD/Blu-ray/VOD Release
Artsploitation Films has acquired US rights for the Australian horror film Red Christmas, directed by veteran television director/producer Craig Anderson. It stars the legendary Dee Wallace (The Hills Have Eyes, The Howling, E.T., Cujo, Critters, Halloween, The Lords of Salem) who also co-produced the film.
Dee Wallace plays 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, dark family secrets with outlandish gore and adds the always controversial subject of abortion in its blood-stained mix.

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. For festival booking inquiries please contact Michael Joy at [email protected]
