Odd supernatural romantic fantasy doesn't make much sense.

Audience Reviews for The Spirit of Christmas


Cheesy low-budget shlock, The Spirit of Christmas is a fairly mundane made for TV movie from Lifetime. When Kate is tasked with getting a hotel appraised that's haunted by a ghost who's cursed to return every year at Christmas she makes a deal with him to help him find out how he died so that he can be freed to move on and she can proceed with selling the hotel. The plot is rather convoluted and doesn't make a lot of sense, as it does little to explain the curse. And the mystery of how the ghost died couldn't be more uninteresting. The performances are pretty lackluster as well, and the cast doesn't have much chemistry. Still, Jen Lilley is charming and does what she can to make the script work. Also, there's a bit of intrigue to the ghost's past life and how he was cursed, as well as some touching Christmas moments. The Spirit of Christmas isn't so much a bad movie as a poorly made one.
