It’s A Wonderful Lift

Malcolm McDowell is no stranger to home invasion flicks, but is the Clockwork Orange star able to withstand the tortures awaiting him inside 2012’s straight-to-tape fifth Home Alone entry?  His Holiday Heist is complicated by an anxious 10-year-old gamer who sets traps in a creepy Maine mansion to stop the crook from removing an Edvard Munch painting. Is the place haunted by the ghost of a murdered bootlegger or Macauley Culkin’s previous exploits?  Find out if the hosts need to be as drunk as Ed Asner (Elf) to unwrap this gag gift when you Donate for Silver.
