Game Over (3615 code Père Noël) Reviews

  • Mar 24, 2021

    Starts off like some kind of French 'Home Alone' - but this villain is proper scary! I've got two films going on here… That dislocation makes the horror so much stronger. Good use of colour, music complements, amping it up. Adding the grampa, along with the hidden passage and the house in the park gives it that Faery Tale feel... and not the nice ones. And then we return to that really dark kid's film at the end!

    Awesome little thriller. It's a trip how similar this was to Home Alone, only taking a more serious route. The Santa here isn't just a one-dimensional killer, there's much more pathos given to him than is usually offered to these kinda parts. The kid here is really cute and a total badass. Why can't more characters in these types of films be more realistic and this well thought out?

    WOW. This house is literally a splitting image of a kids fantasy. Also I've never seen home alone so I really can't comment on the similarities/differences but from what I observed, this film is probably more my style

    Lo que en un principio podría verse como un "Solo en Casa" a la francesa y con un poco más de mala uva (ya sabes, por eso de no ser ladrones sino un potencial asesino psicópata el que hace las de villano), se acaba convirtiendo en todo un viaje de maduración "por las malas" que se empeña en lidiar un tema tan trillado como la "perdida de la inocencia" de las formas más perturbadoras que se podrían concevir en la mente de un niño. En serio, tenemos mucho de lo que hablar sobre esta película en nuestro especial navideño: https://www.ivoox.com/terror-no-tiene-podcast-episodio-57-audios-mp3_rf_30889639_1.html

    3615 code Père Noël is basically a horror/action movie revolving around a young boy who needs to defend his home against an ongoing home invasion. The movie features very graphic violence and due to its over-the-top presentation of action scenes and suspenseful moments, it is not recommended for children. However, the premise is greatly constructed and believably executed, making this movie a highlight of seasonal horror/action movies. Overall 7/10 Full Review: https://movie-discourse.blogspot.de/2018/03/3615-code-pere-noel-1989.html?view=flipcard

    Charming little B movie from France about a smart kid being chased in his home by a psychopath dressed as Santa. It's a bit dated but still works thanks to rather convincing actors (even the kid, which is kind of rare!) and solid direction. Track it down!
