Critic Reviews for Red Christmas

Craig Anderson's Red Christmas isn't exactly a lump of coal in your stocking, but neither is it worth waking up early for on the big day.

August 31, 2017 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Mostly, it's a tightly constructed, unapologetically nasty little thriller, given depth and weight by Wallace's interpretation of a sweet woman suffering for her past.

August 24, 2017 | Full Review…

Gory and offensive, but lacking in the scare department.

August 23, 2017 | Full Review…

It's not fun. It's not frightening. It's just f*cked.

Top Critic

An energetic, candy-colored romp through genre tropes that manages to take its subject matter seriously while poking fun at itself at the same time.

July 28, 2016 | Full Review…

Pointed, twisted, gory, and filled with a surprising amount of character development.

A rather poorly made horror film, Red Christmas doesn't deliver any scares. The story follows a family celebrating Christmas in the Australian countryside that is visited by a mysterious stranger looking to settle some unfinished business. Except for Dee Wallace the acting is universally bad, and the script isn't much better. But it's the directing that really damns the film. The kill scenes are poorly shot and there's no tension or suspense to them. And the special effects are terrible; particularly the creature make-up, which is downright laughable. Red Christmas is an amateurish film that doesn't work at all.
