Don't Open Till Christmas is perhaps the most unique holiday horror flick out there, a little seen movie that provides something a bit different than the usual Christmas horror movie; a killer going around killing anyone dressed as Santa Claus, rather than a killer going around killing while dressed as Santa Claus. Rife with such epic imagery as 'Santa' getting his brains blown out and even his schwantz cut off while taking a piss at a public urinal, Don't Open Till Christmas is, needless to say, pretty damn awesome.
So if it's so awesome, why have few so few horror fans actually seen it? Because it has never actually been legitimately released on DVD here in the states. That is, until just yesterday, when the 1984 Christmas slasher finally received that long awaited DVD release from Mondo Macabro. If that's not a Christmas miracle, I just don't know what is folks!
Boasting a new anamorphic transfer ripped from the original uncut negative as well as two bonus feature documentaries, Mondo's Don't Open Till Christmas DVD is currently going for $22.49 over on Amazon. The price is a bit steep, but you really can't put a price on Santa getting his dick cut off, now can you?! Check this one out if you're looking for something a little different this holiday season. Just make sure the family has gone to bed before you pop it in!
