1989, France, 87 min

Thomas is a typical 1980s kid: he loves Rambo, computers, role-playing games and his dog. While mom’s away at the office on Xmas Eve, Thomas and his grandfather are left home alone – perfect timing for a disgruntled, perverted, bloodthirsty Santa Claus to down the chimney and raid the home. But Hell hath no fury like a mulleted ten-year-old with an arsenal of toys! Previously only available via VHS bootlegs, the film was a huge audience smash at Fantastic Fest 2018. Deadly Games is an enormous discovery.


Restoration Tuesdays: More and more there is essential work being done across the world on the front lines in the battle against losing the history of film to the annals of time, ignorance, and neglect. Efforts to find and restore classic and important; obscure and forgotten film works by such trailblazing organizations as the UCLA Film and Television Archive, Martin Scorsese’s The Film Foundation, American Genre Film Archive, Milestone Film and Video and Janus Films has resulted in some of the most exciting cinema releases in recent years.  We are endeavouring to find and present some of the best examples of these new restorations, and have expanded our program calendar to now include Tuesdays in a new series called Restoration Tuesdays. All admission to these screenings is $5.

Reviews

Beautifully shot and crazed enough to keep you on your toes, this is a film that’d have a bigger cult following if more viewers actually had the chance to see it.
- Nathaniel Thompson, Mondo Digital
Plays like a blend of classic Amblin and a grindhouse nightmare. To say ‘this shit is nuts’ would be an understatement.
