The Knoxville Horror Film Fest Christmas party is back! This year we're screening 2 classics and a screening a secret film that is guaranteed to expand your concept of what a Christmas film can be! BLACK CHRISTMAS (1974) One part frosty Christmas atmosphere, one part stalk ‘n’ slash magnificence, and all parts awesome, BLACK CHRISTMAS is a timeless, terrifying, and demented holiday tradition. When sorority sisters Olivia Hussey (ROMEO & JULIET), Margot Kidder (SUPERMAN) and Andrea Martin (SCTV) are under attack from a vicious potty-mouthed killer, it’s up to police chief John Saxon to even the odds. But what about Keir Dullea (2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY), the brooding art-school pianist? Could he have something to do with the Christmas rampage? Years before he crafted the ultimate comedic yuletime experience A CHRISTMAS STORY, genre pioneer Bob Clark gave us one of the most influential Hitchcockian slashers of all time. BLACK CHRISTMAS gets everything right. DON'T OPEN TILL CHRISTMAS (1984) Whatever you do, DON'T OPEN TILL CHRISTMAS. An unsung 1980s holiday slayride from the makers of PIECES, this unhinged slasher follows a psychopath as they slaughter anyone who's unlucky enough to be dressed like Santa Claus during the holiday season. The twisted maniac dishes out stabbings, gunshots, a castration (!), and even burns the face of a poor Saint Nick while he's roasting chestnuts. A fascinating and endlessly entertaining sleazefest, DON'T OPEN TILL CHRISTMAS is infamous for its shocking gore scenes and gratuitous synth-jam performance from horror icon Caroline Munro (DRACULA A.D. 1972, MANIAC). Newly restored from the original 35mm camera negative! SECRET SCREENING (????) ???????
