A Christmas Horror Story on Oct 2, 2015
Length: 1h 39min
Interwoven stories that take place on Christmas Eve, as told by one festive radio host: A family brings home more than a Christmas tree, a student documentary becomes a living nightmare, a Christmas spirit terrorizes, Santa slays evil.
I have been lucky enough recently to run across several horror stories in both book and movie form. I went into this one thinking it was going to be a straight up B movie, and it was but it was much more delightful than I imagined!
First of all, what happened to Santa!? I can think of Santa being pretty badass as he has seen quite a bit in his years but I don’t remember any tales of him having a scar or what looks to be a fresh slash on his face.
Then the elves! Are these guys zombies? Of course I was more intrigued with the zombie elves.
And then there is the interweaving of William Shatner who is a DJ describing some of the events that happen. This is interwoven as the stories are introduced and as they progress. He does not know much more about them than the viewer so no spoilers from him!
All in all it was a really fun movie. There is a twist at the end! See if you can figure it out before you get to it. I had no idea that I should even be looking for a twist so already you’ll be one up on me. I think this is one B movie that I will add to my collection for this time of year. It’s fun, a bit spooky, a lot gory, and all around great popcorn entertainment.
