Red Christmas is directed by Craig Anderson and stars Dee Wallace, Geoff Morrell, Sarah Bishop, David Collins, and Gerard Odwyer. A bickering but loving family gathers for one last Christmas celebration at their family home, led by matriarch Diane (Wallace). The celebration is interrupted by a cloaked stranger, of whom threatens to expose long kept secrets, and the holiday soon turns from laughter to terrified screams. Red Christmas is a dazzling display of twinkling colors juxtaposing the gory effects and deep politics threatening to tear one family apart. Led by the beloved horror icon Dee Wallace in a tour-de-force performance, this film is for the horror fan that enjoys holiday themed horror with gory effects and a low budget feel.
