Editors’ Choice: Armoury’s Jack Laurence puts a gangland spin on Christmas - and offers you the chase to bag yourself a bottle of brandy

How Many References Can You Find in This Darkest of Christmas Films?

Black Christmas is the new short film from director Jack Laurance at London production company, Armoury.

A dark and distinctly alternative take on the festive season, the film is a disturbing gangland tale that turns all your favourite Christmas clichés on their heads.

Dripping with menace, it features a far from saintly expectant young mother, a bloodthirsty reindeer and a plot with more twists than a candy cane. 

It’s the ultimate antidote to Christmas ad overkill and a gift for anyone with an appreciation for gallows humour. Watch out for a whole host of ingenious and sinister clues referencing well-loved Yuletide traditions…

Pouring brandy on your Christmas pudding will never be the same again.
