As soon as I saw the cover art for the home video release of A Christmas Horror Story, which features Santa Claus battling Krampus in a design that looks like the people behind Game Of Thrones could have created it, I knew I was going to love this movie. As it turns out, I totally did.
I’m just getting that out of the way right up front.
A Christmas Horror Story is a Christmas horror film that includes the kind of old-school frights we’re used to viewing in October, along with the whimsy we’re used to getting during the yuletide. Imagine if Home Alone was just a tad less endearing and much less slapstick, but ten times more bloody. It looks beautiful for a low budget production, especially one of the horror genre, and has a vibe similar to Trick ‘r Treat, another anthology film I love.
