The Cinefamily “spoils you rotten” again this year with all the typical holiday schlock, including “veriteacute; footage of department store Santas, misguided movie tie-ins, exhumed cartoons and aborted holiday specials.” Plus, a screening of John Waters' favorite Christmas movie, Christmas Evil (1980), about a man named Harry who takes the holidays to the extreme after suffering a scarring incident in which he stumbled upon his parents having sex in Santa regalia. Director Lewis Jackson will be in attendance.
