Merry Christmas.

My junior year in high school, I got to choose the movie that ran in the school auditorium on our last day before the Christmas break. (There was also a band playing in the cafeteria.)

I chose Freddie Francis’s The Creeping Flesh (1973), starring Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. It was a beautiful 16mm print from Films Incorporated.

Now I don’t want to get callouses from patting myself on the back, but I think I made a wise choice. And ever since, I think of it as a Christmas movie. 

Here’s wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

    Toby, MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
    That’s not a usual choice in Christmas movies! Well, me, I enjoy DONOVAN’S REEF(filmed 1962, released 1963), WE’RE NO ANGELS(filmed 1954, released 1955), and BELL, BOOK AND CANDLE(1958).
