Previously only available via bootleg, this Christmas horror gem made a year before Home Alone is stylish, bloody and now fully restored.

This was a really fun watch.
Great gem-amazed that this was buried for as long as it was even after the age of DVD where they seemed to be burning anything obscure that they could get their hands on. It won't be what you expect- but well made all around with great care going into the sound design as well as the visuals. The behind the scenes events behind this film would also make a great short documentary. Give it a goog for a good 20 minutes of time killer.
Weird. Fun. Weirdly fun
