Kick Off Holiday Horrors with CHRISTMAS EVIL Coming from Vinegar Syndrome

With Halloween just over two weeks away it feels like the fall is already zipping by. Before you know it we'll be stuffing our faces with turkey and watching viral videos of enraged shoppers trampling one another for that last Singing Snow Glow Elsa.

Good times, good times.

And you know what that means – the Holiday Horrors spirit will be kicking into high gear and trash film fans everywhere will be pulling out their copies of the SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT flicks and basking in the glow of Mickey Rooney's greatest performance while they fill their Wish List with Blu-Rays, books and the latest issue of Exploitation Retrospect ('natch).

But Christmas comes a little early this year thanks to our friends at Vinegar Syndrome (quickly establishing itself as the premiere label for trashhounds and sleaze aficionados).

November 18th (just in time for Thanksgiving gatherings with family!) brings the Blu-Ray debut of Lewis Jackson's CHRISTMAS EVIL (aka YOU BETTER WATCH OUT), a film we called "a movie just as effed up as it sounds" in last year's Holiday Horrors review. The disc also includes a DVD version if Santa hasn't delivered your Blu-Ray player yet.

No less a trash film authority than the one and only John Waters has long been a champion of the flick (his beloved commentary track appears on this as well as other special editions), so you know you're in for a real treat.

Other features include:
  • New 4K restoration from 35mm elements 
  • Three commentary track options with director Lewis Jackson, actor Brandon Maggart (father of Fiona Apple!) and the aforementioned John Waters 
  • Archival video interviews with Jackson and Maggart 
  • Original theatrical trailer 
  • Deleted scenes
  • Actor screen tests 
  • Storyboards gallery
  • Vintage test screening comment cards
CHRISTMAS EVIL is available for pre-order from Amazon. If you're firmly entrenched on Santa's "Naughty" list, Vinegar Syndrome is releasing the double feature of CHAMPAGNE ORGY/FANTASTIC ORGY – featuring John Holmes and Annette Haven – the same day.
