Treevenge is a 2008 Canadian dark comedy short horror film written and directed by Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun, The ABCs of Death ‘Y is for Youngbuck’ segment and V/H/S/2 ‘Alien Abduction Slumber Party’) and produced by Yer Dead Productions. Riz Ortolani’s theme song from Cannibal Holocaust is played during the opening titles.

The movie stars Jonathan Torrens, Sarah E. Dunsworth, Lex Gigeroff, Molly Dunsworth, Glenn Matthews, and Kristin Slaney.

Treevenge depicts Christmas from the perspective of sentient Christmas trees. After being hacked down and shipped to homes, they are subject to “humiliation” by humans, who decorated them and make them stand in their living rooms. The Christmas trees have had enough, and go on to massacre and kill an entire town as part of their uprising…


“The misanthropic humour is perfectly pitched and it climaxes with a show-stopping tree rampage montage that incorporates a Fulci-inspired dual eyeball-poking, dead cats, crushed babies and murdered children. If anyone tries to tell you this isn’t the greatest Christmas horror movie of all time, force-feed them their own spleen…” Horror Screams Video Vault
