Our yearly gathering of film lovers, friends and family to watch and celebrate the greatest holiday nightmare to ever hit the Grindhouse! In Bob Clark’s proto-slasher masterwork Black Christmas, a stranger terrorizes a sorority house with dangerous offerings and obscene phone calls over Christmas break. But the horror may be closer to home than anyone expects. Featuring Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder & John Saxon.

Silent Night, Deadly Night

Ten years after seeing his parents brutally slaughtered, a traumatized teen leaves his orphanage home, gets a job at the local toy store and goes on a murderous rampage dressed as Santa Claus in the outrageously un-PC slasher Silent Night, Deadly Night. Family groups, politicians and critics protested while Fangoria fans cheered this blood-drenched holiday treat for naughty boys & girls.

Black Christmas (2006)

Terror comes home for a Black Christmas when a group of sorority sisters get stalked & slashed while snowed in over holiday break in this gruesome remake of the seminal slasher. Diving deep into a jaundiced killer’s dark history, this update diverges dramatically from the original to show the hateful creation and horrific backstory that turned a boy into a deranged maniac. Starring Katie Cassidy, Michelle Trachtenberg, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Lacey Chabert.

“A surprisingly memorable creepfest that fleshes out the characters’ backstories while adding a heaping helping of blacker-than-pitch humor to the proceedings.” – Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
