The cult-classic 1980 slasher film, looking and sounding better than ever in a new 4k restoration, returns to the big screen for the first time in years! We’re proud to present the esteemed Mr. Waters’ favorite Xmas film twice–including a 7:30pm screening on Christmas Eve itself!

 

“Terrifically strange”  —The British Film Institute, naming it one of 10 great Christmas horror movies

 

“It’s a Christmas miracle!”  —Daily Grindhouse
