Horror Movie: A Low Budget Nightmare review – surprisingly delightful gore-fest doco

A documentary with heart and sincerity – all the more surprising given the grotesque content of the film it documents the making of

In an attempt to explain the twisted, wigged-out ambition of writer/director Craig Anderson – namely what compelled him to make his feature film debut, the horror movie Red Christmas – there is no better person to refer to than the man himself. Laying himself emotionally bare in the opening reels of Horror Movie: A Low-Budget Nightmare, director Gary Doust’s surprisingly delightful two-part documentary about the film-maker’s backbreaking journey to realise his dreams, Anderson gets watery-eyed as he reflects on his life.

“All the years I was growing up, the only thing I ever wanted to do was make a movie. And somewhere along the line I got confused,” he says. “Parts of my life have just fallen by the wayside ... What I don’t want to be,

Horror Channel FrightFest – Halloween Event Poster Round-Up

From the emotional making of a low-budget slasher to zombie nightmares, Gothic horrors, an outrageously strange mind cult, a sci-fi alien action extravaganza, a comic strip creature feature and the last word in Killer Clowns, this year’s Horror Channel FrightFest Halloween 2017 line-up is an eclectic mix of the quirky, unusual and extreme… In celebration of the event here’s brand-new posters for threee of the films airing today at the Empire Haymarket, London.

Horror Movie: A Low Budget Nightmare

A funny, sad, candid and revealing documentary on the making of Red Christmas. Sick of playing quirky roles on Australian TV shows, actor/filmmaker Craig Anderson puts everything on the line to make his first low budget slasher about an aborted foetus seeking revenge on its family. With money issues, union troubles, an angry Hollywood Scream Queen and even a circumcision to overcome, we follow Craig’s nail-biting rollercoaster production

Blu-ray Review: Red Christmas Kills

I first saw Red Christmas at Fantasia in 2016, and then again in September 2017 at the Horrible Imaginings Film Festival. Star Dee Wallace (Cujo, E.T.) was in attendance at both festivals, but it was at Hiff where she gave an impassioned speech about her choices and her role in Red Christmas that cemented her status as a serious badass for me.  After a lengthy festival tour, director Craig Anderson's crazy little horror film has come out on blu-ray via Artsploitation. Crafted on a microbudget, this home invasion slasher filmed in Australia took full advantage of the funding and talent there as well as the natural lighting on hand. Wallace stars as a retiring mother who's gathered her children around her in the family home for one last Christmas before...

Red Christmas Starring Dee Wallace Now Under the Tree on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD

Artsploitation has delivered the ultimate stocking stuffer with the home video release of the Australian horror film Red Christmas.  Veteran television director and actor Craig Anderson makes his feature debut with Red Christmas, combining the banal horror of family gatherings with the issues of abortion, feminism, ethics, religion and privacy, with a blood-splattered twist on what happens when secrets refuse to stay dead.  Following a theatrical rollout across the United States, Red Christmas will be available nationwide October 17th on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD, including iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, Vudu and more.

Genre icon Dee Wallace (The Hills Have Eyes, The Howling, E.T., Cujo, Critters) stars in a critically acclaimed role as the stressed-out mother of a squabbling family, gathered together in a remote Outback estate on Christmas Eve.  Their petty dramas threaten to blacken the holiday until a mysterious and deformed stranger appears at the door seeking bloody vengeance.

Red Christmas and Returning from the Dead: A Film Review

*full disclosure: a Blu-ray screener of this film was provided by Artsploitation Films. Director/writer: Craig Anderson. Cast: Dee Wallace, Sarah Bishop, Geoff Morrell, Janis McGavin and David Collins. Red Christmas is a no-budget horror feature from first time feature film director Craig Anderson. Anderson even admits that most actors were not even paid for their roles, in the film's commentary. Just released by Artsploitation Films, Anderson brings a family tragedy to the screen, with his interesting characters. All of the characters are multi-dimensional here. Though, the film's plot plods slowly along through the film's mid-point. Here, the focus is on dispatching a few of the characters, in gruesome ways. The film tackles a difficult subject, abortion. The message is convoluted thanks to the dark humour. But, the film does show that abortion does have consequences as seen in the film's high body count and disturbing images. Overall, Red Christmas

‘Red Christmas’ Review

Stars: Dee Wallace, Geoff Morrell, Janis McGavin, David Collins, Sarah Bishop, Bjorn Stewart, Gerard Odwyer, Atlas Adams, Sam Campbell, Deelia Meriel, Anthony Jensen, Robert Anderson | Written and Directed by Craig Anderson

Red Christmas is the latest festive horror which has been produced by, and stars, Dee Wallace. The film continues in the traditional bloody footsteps of the Christmas slasher genre, although writer and director Craig Anderson takes a lot of time to really develop the characters, giving the film a bit more depth than just your normal hack and slash.

Red Christmas begins in an abortion clinic, with a woman who is undergoing an abortion. During the procedure a bomb is detonated, causing panic and confusion as everyone tries to evacuate. Acting quickly, the removed foetus is dumped into a biohazard bucket which is kicked aside as everyone begins to leave. Unbeknownst to them the baby is found by the bomber,

“New Horror

We are in the midst of a horror film resurgence. A significant group of contemporary horror films made in the past couple of years is reminiscent of the socio-political classics of the 1960s and 1970s in that they are boldly confronting the terrifying undercurrent of life today. Like their predecessors, these films tackle class, gender identity, and race in a way that shows us both where we are and how far we,
