We want to thank you for an amazing first year, San Diego. Seriously, this has been a dream come true, and we can’t thank you all enough for the support you’ve shown us by attending events and spreading the word about our shows. But the year wouldn’t be complete without some good Christmas cinema, and we’re ready to hit you over the head with a Santa bag full of goodies that will leave you shaking with joy.

You can’t program better than the best in the business, so this year, we’re going to go ahead and shamelessly rip off (but truthfully pay tribute to) The New Bev’s legendary Yuletide double feature of BLACK CHRISTMAS and SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT, and bring it to San Diego. It’s really the best Christmas double feature, so we’re not going to try messing with perfection. Carol along with us downtown on our new immersive screen at The Tenth Avenue Arts Center.

We’re opening the doors early at 6 PM for this one, so please bring whatever holiday treats you want into the building and enjoy them on the Top of the Tenth rooftop lounge.

Plus, our friends at Now or Never Comics have a holiday gift for you as well! Every attendee will get a complimentary horror-themed comic upon entry. Now you’ll have something good to read for once during Christmas Break.

On December 13th, it’s time for some holiday cheer. We’ll see you at the show!


One part frosty Christmas atmosphere, one part stalk ‘n’ slash magnificence, and all parts awesome, BLACK CHRISTMAS is a timeless, terrifying, and demented holiday tradition. When sorority sisters Olivia Hussey (ROMEO & JULIET), Margot Kidder (SUPERMAN) and Andrea Martin (SCTV) are under attack from a vicious potty-mouthed killer, it’s up to police chief John Saxon to even the odds. But what about Keir Dullea (2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY), the brooding art-school pianist? Could he have something to do with the Christmas rampage? Years before he crafted the ultimate comedic yuletime experience A CHRISTMAS STORY, genre pioneer Bob Clark gave us one of the most influential Hitchcockian slashers of all time. BLACK CHRISTMAS gets everything right.



Santa Claus is coming to town...and this time he’s got an axe! Community leaders tried to stop it. The PTA fought to ban it. Now, one of the most controversial slasher films of all time is back in a new restoration from the original camera negative. SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT is the demented story of little Billy Chapman, traumatized by his parents’ Christmas Eve murder and then brutalized by sadistic nuns in an orphanage. When Billy grows up and dresses as Santa, he goes on a yuletide rampage to punish the naughty with extreme prejudice. Robert Brian Wilson and Linnea Quigley (NIGHT OF THE DEMONS) star in this harrowing horror classic that continues to ruffle the feathers of angry parents and stuffy critics over thirty years later.
