Blood Beat is quite possible the most bizarre Christmas themed horror film ever made!
1982 was a great year for weird and wild independent cinematic sleaze, but Blood Beat may take home the crowning acheivement award for Christmas horror films featuring Samurai's. A young man brings his new girlfriend home to his parents house, in rural Wisconsin, for the holidays. There's time board games, deer hunting, watching TV, relaxing, flying inanimate objects, sex with Samurai induced climaxes and of course some holiday slashings. Apparently the girlfriend has brought back the spirit of an ancient Samurai when she visited Wisconsin and the Samurai still has some killing left to do. Part slasher, part poltergiest and all crazy, this is one Christmas horror film that you won't forget.
