Audience Reviews for Home for the Holidays (Deadly Desires)

Absurd made for TV movie, Sally Field and Eleanor Parker as sisters? However the cast really is a one in a lifetime collection and its absurd in a fun way.

This Joseph Stefano scripted ABC movie of the week seems to have a lot of fans but it hasn't aged well. Four sisters return to spend Christmas with their ailing father, the legendary Walter Brennan. He tells them his new bride Julie Harris is planning to off him to get her hands on the estate. When a raincoat wearing killer starts bumping off the sisters, paranoia strikes. It's most noteworthy for prefiguring the slasher genre by a few years but it suffers from getting bogged down in TV exposition. For curious horror fans only.

"Home For The Holidays", originally a made-for-television horror movie, is a neat little horror mystery slasher that delivers some suspense and spooky moments. It is really well-written plus the cast, The cast which is made up of mostly female actresses is really excellent.
This holiday horror film is worth a look
