Competition: Win ‘Christmas Evil’ on DVD *closed*

Kick off your festive season celebrations in bloody style with the rerelease of Lewis Jackson’s Yuletide cult horror Christmas Evil (1980) on DVD. When little Harry Stadling first sees his dad in a Santa Claus outfit, groping his mother one Christmas Eve, life changes for the quiet little boy. Thirty or so years later, you’d better watch out in this 1980s horror classic from the small but perfectly formed micro-genre of Yuletide slashers. We’ve been particularly good this year, and have THREE DVD copies of the film to give away to our ghoulish readers. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

All grown up and disgruntled by his dead end job in a depressing toy factory – he’s making a list, checking it twice and descending into a self-created Christmas nightmare where he is Saint Nick – Harry (Brandon Maggart) is going to show his bullying co-workers and all the other naughty people what the true spirit of the season is. Run for your miserable lives, as Harry’s vengeance is going to be swift and bloody. Christmas Evil is a truly dark Christmas oddity that cult movie kingpin John Waters described as “the greatest Christmas movie ever made.”

To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE DVD copies of Christmas Evil, just answer the following simple question:

What is one of the alternate titles given to Lewis Jackson’s cult classic Christmas Evil?
