The 12 Slays of Christmas

The 12 Slays of Christmas

In the run-up to Christmas Day, ARROW offers up an absolute gift of a film every day to give your cheeks a warm and rosy festive glow. So open all these presents early (we won't tell), finish that drink, clear your throat and bust out your best carol-singing voice for our take on a yuletide classic:

On the twelfth day of Christmas
My ARROW gave to me:
Twelve scissors slashing
Eleven cultists chasing
Ten ghosts a-waiting
Nine ladies loving
Eight men under tables
Seven creepy hotels
Six censors snipping
FIIIVE GWILL-I-AMS!
Four crawling guys
Three metalheads
Two cannibals
And a shunt into So-ci-e-ty!
