Before directing Hobo With a Shotgun, and the awesome alien segment in our V/H/S/2, Jason Eisener broke onto the horror scene with his insanely gory holiday classic.
A must-watch each and every year, here’s Eisener’s 2008 “Treevenge,” in which a bunch of trees get revenge on those who kill them each and every holiday season.
“‘Treevenge’ Details the experiences and horrifying reality of the lives of Christmas trees. Clearly, for trees, Christmas isn’t the exciting “peace on earth” that is experienced by most. After being hacked down, and shipped away from their homes, they quickly become strung up, screwed into an upright position for all to see, exposed in a humiliation of garish decorations. But this Christmas will be different, this Christmas the trees have had enough, this Christmas the trees will fight back. ‘Treevenge’ could be a short film about the end of days for Christmas trees, or perhaps, the end of humanity?”
