Home for the Horrordays continues! Released in 1980, Christmas Evil was sold to cash in on the success of Halloween or Friday the 13th. While it bears many of the hallmarks of a typical 80s slasher film, what sets this one apart is how deeply we come to understand its main character, Harry. He’s a disturbed individual, and we watch as he makes preparations to become his town’s Santa Claus, delivering toys to good children, and dishing out pain to the naughty. Join us and find out why John Waters calls this his favorite Christmas movie!
