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!
