RED CHRISTMAS is an Australian horror film in which a family Christmas is interrupted by an unexpected visitor.

Violence

Scenes dwell on the bloody infliction of injury. A man forces the head of another onto spinning blades, causing blood to spout from his eyes. A man's head gushes blood when caught in a man trap. A woman is cut in half with an axe.

Injury detail

There are images of dismembered aborted foetuses. A man's face is seen to have been caved in.

There is infrequent use of very strong language ('c**t'), as well as more frequent strong language ('f**k').

There is strong threat as characters are hunted and killed by a hooded figure.

Abortion is a theme of the film. The moving hand of an aborted foetus is seen. A character with Down's syndrome is distressed to discover that his mother considered aborting him.

An unsympathetic character uses discriminatory language ('negroids'), but is immediately disapproved of.

There is a strong sex scene with rear nudity when characters are spied on by another. There is a strong sex reference to 'cream pies'.

A character using a suicide belt blows up an abortion clinic. A woman takes her own life by hanging in order to cause the death of another.

A pregnant character smokes cannabis; her sister is disapproving.
