Home / Now Showing / CHRISTMAS BLOODY CHRISTMAS
It is always a delight to welcome Joe Begos back to the festival: a true friend and a demented mastermind whose every film plays with our expectations – and his latest one is no exception! Setting out to create perhaps the most insane Christmas film ever, Begos puts together an unholy blend of violence, blood and the most festive mood ever to craft something so intense and entertaining that it could only come from his mind. Christmas season is upon us and all Tori wants to do is close the record shop she works at for the season and go and get a drink. However, her plans go incredibly awry when a murderous santa goes on the trailer of her and her friends, murdering anyone in sight. But is there more to this psychotic-santa than it seems? Bloody, brutal and brilliant, Begos is back bringing along the usual array of talented friends both in front and behind the camera.
