Don't Open Till Christmas (1984) A murderer is running loose through the streets of London, hunting down men dressed as Santa and killing them all in different, and extremely violent, fashions. Inspector Harris has decided to take on the unenviable task of tracking down the psychopath, but he's going to have his work cut out for him. Only the suspicious reporter, Giles, seems to offer the Inspector any promising leads.

More Movie Taglines:
  • ...t'was the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring...they were all dead!
Movie Trivia:
  • The film took almost two years to complete after original director Edmund Purdom quit the job and Derek Ford took over but was fired after two days. The distributors then hired Ray Selfe to complete the direction and Al McGoohan to rewrite parts of the script, including the original ending and the London Dungeon sequence, and much of the footage was completely re-filmed.
  • Although the character of Dr Bridle (played by Nicholas Donnelly) is referred to in the script he has never appeared in any print of the movie. Due to the films many production difficulties his scenes were probably filmed but deleted.
