A Christmas Horror Story 2015

US Title:
A Christmas Horror Story
Year:
2015
Country:
Canada
Director:
Grant Harvey, Steven Hoban, Brett Sullivan


What’s It About?
A horror anthology with four loosely connected tales of Christmas terror: Krampus, zombie elves, tree demons (I think?) and homicidal ghosts. And William Shatner shows up too.

Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
The idea of Santa Clause fighting off a horde of killer zombie elves on Christmas Eve actually sounds like something that could have been made into a funny, irreverent action/comedy movie, complete with over-the-top effects, cheesy one-liners, and lots of explosions. Sadly, this movie does not take that approach, opting instead to be a straight horror film. The result is four short stories that all fall flat and are generally predictable and unexciting. Even William Shatner can’t save them.

Final Grade: D
