The Last Christmas! Deadpool! Black Christmas! It’s A Horrific Grindhouse Holiday!

Evil Santa

Uh oh, Santa seems to have gotten up on the wrong side of the sleigh….not the best way to celebrate the holidays!

Well, sometimes you need to look at the holidays through a slightly different set of eyes…without future ado, I give you:

The Last Christmas

Time to showcase a twisted graphic novel from the fertile and dark minds of Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan, with Rick Remender the Illustrator…let’s take a trip to a world where Santa doesn’t “ho ho ho”, he “heaves ho!”

After the apocalypse, no one is safe – not even the North Pole. After tragedy strikes, Santa opens a bottle and withdraws from life – and turns his drunken back on Christmas.

The Last Christmas

When Santa finally emerges from seclusion, the old world is gone forever, and as Santa struggles to find his way in a post-apocalyptic world, can he find a way to save Christmas too? Time to jump in and read this classic graphic novel to find out!

Santa Claus, Zombie Killer!

First of all, Santa starts by kicking some Zombie ass! I don’t want to give away any more, but kudos to Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan for creating a Santa Claus we’d all like to kick a little Zombie ass with!

Of course, you recognize Brian from a ton of movie and TV appearances, and he also does a hilarious standup act…

I was lucky enough to work with Gerry Duggan, who is a brilliant writer with a twisted view of the world, and we are all the better for it…

Jump into “The Last Christmas”,, and when you come up for air, guess what? Duggan and Posehn have teamed up again as well….

“Deadpool”

Make sure to check out Gerry and Brian’s new work, “Deadpool”…

Dead former United States presidents, from George Washington to Gerald Ford have been resurrected, and that’s BAD. The Marvel heroes can’t be the ones to stop them, someone is needed with the reputation, skills and plausible deniability to take out these com-monsters in chiefs…NOW! is the time for “Deadpool”… In Wade We Trust!

The team is doing tons of interviews, whcih are easily found on the web – just search “Deadpool” and you’ll find a bunch of great stuff about this graphic novel…and they are also doing book signings as well….

Congrats guys on a great collection of work! And everyone else, these are great holiday gifts…that’s right, it’s the holiday – the season for giving!

While Santa sleeps it off, let’s switch from page to screen, as it is time to share a holiday classic. Sure, there are heartwarming, inspiring holiday movies – and then there is THIS!


A “Not So Merry” Christmas Awaits!

As you’ve already read, Christmas isn’t ALWAYS a time for good cheer – it can be a killer!


Filthy Billy, I know what you did nasty Billy!

As you can tell, Billy’s in a bit of trouble this holiday season – and that’s bad for everyone he runs into at the sorority…

Black Christmas

This is a classic horror film that lives up to the hype on the poster – you gotta love THIS tagline:

“If this picture doesn’t make your skin crawl, it’s on TOO TIGHT!”

If you haven’t seen this original classic holiday horror film, just check out the VERY disturbing trailer:


Hooray Bob Clark!

This effective little thriller is Directed by Bob Clark, who also made another holiday classic, “A Christmas Story!”

Talk about an Artist with a broad palate – he also directed “Porkys!” No “ho ho” here however…just a vicious killer on the loose…

Black Christmas

It’s time for Christmas break, and a group of sorority sisters make plans for the holiday – but something is wrong, and then the horrifying anonymous phone calls begin. Olivia Hussey stars in the film…

Black Christmas

When sorority sister Clare disappears, they contact the police, who don’t express much concern. The police finally begin to get concerned when a 13-year-old girl is found dead in the park nearby…and things just get worse.

Black Christmas

Margot Kidder also stars as one of Olivia’s sorority sisters, and she’s got a wicked sense of humor and an acid tongue…

Black Christmas

Kidder really elevates the film with her caustic wit…this film was released just a few years before Kidder would star in “Superman” with Christopher Reeve as Lois Lane…

What A Cast!

Kier Dullea also stars in the movie – Dullea of course was in Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece, “2001: A Space Odyssey.”

Great character Actor John Saxon also stars – and action movie fans will always remember him in the Bruce Lee classic “Enter The Dragon.”

Keir Dullea worked only for a week on this film, never meeting Margot Kidder and barely meeting John Saxon, but the film is edited in such a way that he appears to be present throughout the film…

Around 1986, Olivia Hussey met Steve Martin for a role in “Roxanne”, and Martin said “Oh my God Olivia, you were in one of my all time favorite films”. Hussey assumed it was her classical performance in the phenomenal Romeo and Juliet – Olivia was surprised to find out it was indeed Black Christmas, Martin claimed he had seen it over 20 times.

This movie is a classic horror film, and just the antidote to out-of-tune holiday carolers!
