Merry Christmas, everybody. On this Christmas Eve we give you a night’s worth of listening with a blast from the past episode and TWO discussions devoted to the winner of our Christmas Movie Poll, 1980’s Christmas Evil.

Written and directed by Lewis Jackson, this is a film that seems to be often overlooked and under-discussed when this time of year comes around. A longtime favorite of Becca- and, indeed, her contribution to the poll options -and John, Richard was somewhat surprised to learn he was not the only newbie to this film. It turned out that Jerry had seen so many bits and pieces of the film over the years that he thought he’d seen it, but he, in fact, had never seen the entire film either.

So what did two first time viewers think of the film that Becca and John hold as a holiday favorite? Check out the podcast via the embedded player below, on iTunes, or on its SoundCloud homepage.
