Now I have a killer Santa slasher on the list with “To All a Goodnight” (1980); a truly bad little horror film that I simply find truly enjoyable. It fits well within the genre I’ve been covering for the past two weeks of Cult-Christmas classics.
Month: November 2018
The ultimate Cult-Christmas flick belongs to a movie that’s simply titled “Black Christmas” (1974). A low-budget Canadian effort that didn’t receive much fanfare when initially released; it has gained near immortal status among horror buffs ever since and for many viewers, like myself, it’s required viewing every holiday season.
Like most film lovers I have a batch of Christmas movies I watch to get me in the mood. These include the classics like; „It‘s a Wonderful Life“ (1946), „A Christmas Story“ (1983), „Christmas Vacation“ (1989) and such. But November has evolved into the month where the dark side of Christmas is explored with a few Cult-Christmas flicks. They‘re not all good but they are pretty much unmissable this time of year in my household.
It was short and sweet; 4 films and 13 episodes and the Man from Atlantis vanished. Patrick Duffy hit it big in „Dallas“ but his interest with the character persisted and the actor published a novel in 2016 where he covered his origins. Duffy explained that if the novel would sell in large numbers he would be interested in doing a trilogy about this aquatic man who‘s possibly from Atlantis.
