RED CHRISTMAS Starring Scream Queen Dee Wallace, to be Released by Artsploitation Films


Red Christmas, Starring Scream Queen Dee Wallace, to be Released by Artsploitation Films
Controversial Abortion-Themed Horror Film Set for Genre Festivals and Theatrical before DVD/Blu-ray/VOD Release

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, 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.
