Red Christmas Trailer

Red Christmas Trailer

 

 ‘Red Christmas’ celebrates the tradition of holiday horror classics like, Gremlins, Christmas Evil, Silent Night Deadly Night, and Black Christmas, with it’s own sense of humor in spite of it’s dramatic theme.

 Legendary Scream Queen, Dee Wallace (E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Cujo, The Howling) embraces the role of a tough mother who is trying to hold her crazy family together over the Christmas holiday.

 In a strange twist of faith, Dee’s past literally comes back to haunt her and possibly kill her in this unique throwback to the 1980’s slasher films that we’ve grown to love.

OUR STORY:
My name is Michael Joy and I started out almost 10 years ago writing for Horrornews.net and then ended up being Operations Manager for the site doing a lot of public relations and marketing.  

Last year,  I took a position with Artsploitation Films as Director of Marketing and Public Relations and have handled campaigns for the following movies, Vampyres, The Devil Lives Here, Killbillies, Deadly Virtues, Counter Clockwise, and most recently, Red Christmas.  

In 2017, Marketing Macabre was unleashed and quickly grew taking on Woodhaven Media as a client, helping them promote their brand and their new movies Anders Manor and The Santa Files, as well as their back catalog of films.   We also created a great campaign for Author, William Burke to promote his new book, Voodoo Child, Book One: Zombie Uprising.  

We recently partnered with both ConnectOps and Minuteman Press to expand our resources and services.

80's Style Horror Returns in 'Red Christmas' starring Horror Legend, Dee Wallace

Red Christmas, Starring Scream Queen Dee Wallace, to be Released by Artsploitation Films 
Controversial Abortion-Themed Horror Film Set for Genre Festivals and Theatrical before DVD/Blu-ray/VOD Release


Artsploitation Films has acquired US rights from international sales agent Devilworks for the Australian horror film Red Christmas directed by veteran television director/producer Craig Anderson. The dark,violent and sickly twisted tale had its World Premiere at the Sydney Film Festival, its North American Premiere at Fantasia Festival and its European Premiere at London's Frightfest.

The film stars (and was co-produced by) horror film acting legend, Dee Wallace (The Hills Have Eyes, The HowlingE.T., Cujo, Critters, Halloween,The Lords of Salem) as the mother of a squabbling family, gathered together in a remote Outback estate on Christmas Eve. When a mysterious, deformed young man named Cletus appears at their door, things soon go from petty insults to bloody, imaginatively orchestrated violence as Wallace attempts to protect her family from the vengeful intruder. The film deliriously infuses comedy, dark family secrets with outlandish gore and adds the always controversial subject of abortion in its blood-stained mix.


Initial critical responseVARIETY: "An energetic, candy-colored romp through genre tropes that manages to take its subject matter seriously while poking fun at itself at the same time."
RUE MORGUE: "Nothing is sacred to Anderson and setting murderous mayhem on the eponymous holiday is only the beginning of Red Christmas‘ challenge to propriety and good taste.”;
BIRTHDEATHMOVIES: "Anchored by a genuinely great Dee Wallace performance, Red Christmas is a completely bizarre horror film...it enters the realm of perverse fascination."
SCREAM MAGAZINE: "Striking, bold and brilliant; a sure-fire Christmas classic for horror lovers.”

Artsploitation Films president Ray Murray says, "We are excited to release this over-the-top, deliriously entertaining genre film. With its odd anti-abortion angle, it could very well be the first horror film of the Trump era!" Devilworks president Matteo Rolleri remarks, "’We are thrilled to be working with Artsploitation and couldn’t think of anyone better to release such a striking exploitation film! Red Christmas sits among the classics; it is kinetic, untamed and saturated in gore.’’



The US premiere of the film and the initial festival run will be announced in the coming weeks while the limited theatrical run is scheduled for August and DVD/Blu-ray and VOD scheduled for October. For festival booking inquires please contact Michael Joy at joyhorror@msn.com.

Voodoo Child, Book One: Zombie Uprising

Voodoo Child
Book One: Zombie Uprising
by William Burke

Army chopper pilot Maggie Child has a reputation for being fearless, professional and, above all, rational. But when she’s shot down over Iraq her well-ordered life spirals into a paranormal nightmare. Alone, wounded and surrounded by hostile forces, Maggie is rescued from certain death by a demon straight out of Dante’s Inferno. Then, barely alive, she’s abducted by a private military corporation conducting insidious medical experiments. Her escape from their covert hellhole lands her on a Caribbean island where an evil voodoo spirit and a psychotic female dictator are conspiring to unleash an apocalyptic zombie plague. Then she uncovers the most terrifying secret of all—her own destiny. It seems a Voodoo oracle has ordained her the only warrior capable of saving humanity from a supernatural Armageddon … whether she wants the job or not!
But saving the world isn’t a one-woman job, so she teams up with a trio of unlikely heroes—a conspiracy obsessed marijuana smuggler, a Voodoo priestess with an appetite for reality television, and a burnt out ex-mercenary. Together, they’ll take on an army of the walking dead, with the fate of humanity resting in their eccentric hands.





Voodoo Child, Book One: Zombie Uprising is the first novel in a new horror series packed with supernatural thrills, rousing adventure, dark humor, Voodoo lore and plenty of zombie stomping action. But a word of warning; don’t shoot these zombies in the head … because that just makes them mad!
It’s the legions of hell versus Maggie Child … and hell doesn’t have a prayer!
