DON'T OPEN TILL CHRISTMAS: Belated Edition

So it’s January… Christmas is over and I bet you’ve been hitting up all the post boxing day day sales as well. Good job. Way to support consumerism and capitalism in general. If you think you’re done spending I encourage you to look again as one of our dear old favorites is very available for purchase as we speak. You can put under the faux tree that you never take down and decorate for any number of miscellaneous holidays throughout the year.



Don’t Open Till Christmas is available from TLA Releasing. This is pretty much as good as its going to get. The transfer is brilliant (sub Blu-Ray, but we just wanted a DVD release… let’s not jump the gun). The most important part of this release is that the good folks over at TLA didn’t mess with the packaging. Same great cover. Half the calories.



Synopsis (from the IMDB… blah):

Somebody with very little Christmas spirit is killing anyone in a Santa suit one
London holiday season, and Scotland Yard has to stop him before he makes his
exploits an annual tradition.



Personal notes about the film outside of its release on DVD being sought after for quite some time. A. this film has an amazing score. B. this film’s history is borderline Jerry Springer. It’s got a documentary that I wouldn’t say you couldn’t miss, but rather that if you did miss it, COAL IN YOUR STOCKING. C. Santa’s from Greenland… for reals (watch the movie already).

In all honesty this movie is a tad bit slow at times. It's ultra super, mega British. Plenty of boobies to satisfy the gentlemen and the ladies. In fact I think that watching this alongside American Werewolf in London might given an accurate portrait of the late 70's, early 80's adult entertainment industry in England. Couldn't hurt to pair 'em.



This movie has all the kills and boobs of your favorite 80’s slasher flick with a fun holiday twist. Great as a gift. Not for children. Batteries not included. Oh, and if you get the chance stop by TLA Releasing and thank them for putting this out. They’re doing such a nice job over there.
