In an attempt to explain the twisted, wigged-out ambition of writer/director Craig Anderson – namely what compelled him to make his feature film debut, the horror movie Red Christmas – there is no better person to refer to than the man himself.

“All the years I was growing up, the only thing I ever wanted to do was make a movie. And somewhere along the line I got confused,” he says. “Parts of my life have just fallen by the wayside … What I don’t want to be, is the guy who dies not having done what they should have done. So I am going to make a movie. About an aborted foetus that survives its abortion, grows up, and kills its family.”
