A Christmas Carol 1970s Recast

I want a new Christmas Carol, but not really a new one, an old one. I want a 1970s Christmas Carol that barely holds together due to the massive personalities involved and their excesses. The kind of thing that would require a full chapter in a tell-all biography. A lot of these picks are really on-the-nose, but what good is a fantasy if it isn't fantastic?

British snot Guy Hamilton can handle the large ensemble cast and fantasy elements, so he'd be a great pick as director.

As Ebenezer Scrooge we have Orson Welles. He may need to be seated for much of the film, but he'll be wonderful in the top hat. Early in production he needs to be…

  • F for Fake
  • Death on the Nile
  • Flame
  • Corky
  • The Omen
  • Aguirre, the Wrath of God
  • The Beyond
  • The Devils
  • Tombs of the Blind Dead
