On the 17th of December, there will be a screening of Christmas Evil at the Phoenix, Leicester.
“The Taxi Driver of Christmas movies” – Den of Geek. Arguably one of the best Christmas horrors, Christmas Evil is the story of a boy who loves all things festive, but he’s scared when he learns that Santa is not real.
He becomes a toymaker in an attempt to make the Christmas spirit a reality, but when he’s met with hypocrisy and cynicism he snaps and embarks on a yuletide killing spree.
