‘Tis The Season to Be Bloody

Red’s big on Christmas, but we’re not quite sure Santa had Quentin Tarantino’s use of the color in mind for the holiday.

Encore will run “A Very Quentin Christmas,” a marathon of the director’s five films, beginning at noon Dec. 25 with Reservoir Dogs, followed by Pulp Fiction (1:50 p.m.), Jackie Brown (4.:40 p.m.), Kill Bill Vol. 1 (7:30 p.m.) and Kill Bill Vol. 2 (9:35 p.m.).

Actor Michael Madsen, who appears in Reservoir Dogs and both Kill Bills, will serve as host of the festivities, marking the first time the five films have been presented together uncut, commercial-free and in the letterbox format, according to Encore officials.
