Philadelphia Film Society debuts its first ever Bloody Christmas Series: 3 Weeks Of Christmas Terror event by including in the series a screening of two fan-favorite films: Hobo With A Shotgun and Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, both available now on Blu-ray Disc and DVD from Magnolia Home Entertainment under the Magnet Label.
The evening beings with a special screening of Treevenge, winner of audience award for Best Short Film at the Fantasia Film Festival. Directed by Jason Eisner (Hobo With A Shotgun), the vengeful tale about homicidal Christmas trees will get the audience into the holiday spirit.
“Even crazier than you imagined” (/Film), the winner of the Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez SXSW Grindhouse Trailer Competition, Hobo With A Shotgun, is now a full-length “double-barreled mayhem…bad-ass perfect” (Hollywood Reporter) horror thriller. Starring international film legend Rutger Hauer (Sin City, Blade Runner) and produced by Niv Fichman (Blindness, The Red Violin), Hobo With A Shotgun is the explosive tale of one man pushed to his bloody breaking point by the surrounding chaos and violence of the grotesque urban hell in which he lives.
A hit on the festival circuit after its debut at the Sundance Film Festival, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil is the winner of the Midnight Audience Award at SXSW, Jury Prize for First Feature at Fantasia, Best Director at The Fantaspoa Film Festival, and Best Motion Picture at The Sitges Film Festival. Alan Tudyk (“Firefly,” “Suburgatory”), Tyler Labine (“Reaper”), and Katrina Bowden (“30 Rock”) all star in the horror/comedy about two backwoods hillbillies caught in a bloody case of mistaken identity.
Guests are encouraged to arrive before 7:00 p.m. to receive a free bag of popcorn and a beer. Those arriving after 7:00 p.m. pay $3 for a bag of popcorn and a beer.
