To celebrate one year of Rotten Rentals (our online shop) we are announcing 7 prizes over 7 days.

    You can’t go wrong with this one (Garbage Day!) but I have warm nostalgic memories for the first Silent Night, Deadly Night if only for one Miss Linnea Quigley! Watch out for those antlers!

  • Tasha Holmes-French

    Jack Frost! Who doesn’t love a giant killer snow man 🙂

  • Nick

    Christmas evil because I loved watching the chaos develop

  • Jacqueline Smith

    Silent Night Zombie Night because who doesn’t love Xmas and zombies? There’s also the fact that people are forced to be with each other, due to the fact that they are trapped, the same way many of us feel during the holidays and family gatherings.

    Dead End (2003)

    On Christmas Eve a dysfunctional family decide to take a short cut in
    order to get to their relatives house a little faster. Instead they
    end up living the nightmare before Christmas on an endless road to
    nowhere. A Lady in White appears and slowly the family is killed one by
    one. Then a mysterious driver in a large black antique car takes them
    away. Dead End is very creepy and effective Thriller. Dead End is a
    low-budget film that is well written with a fantastic cast including Lyn

    “Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale”
    This movie finally solved the mystery of Santa Clause and the secret of Christmas for me.

    “Black Christmas” is my favorite. It’s one of the greatest cult horror films created, pre-dating John Carpenters “Halloween.”

  • David Keel

    1974’s Black Christmas. I think the fact that it had actors and a director who were actually talented and kinda well known at the time. dak02 (at) Hotmail (dot) com
