Movie Info

From the mind of bestselling author Terry Pratchet comes this off-the-wall holiday film. In the parallel universe of Discworld, they don't celebrate Christmas. Instead, children look forward to December 32nd, also known as Hogswatchnight, when they'll receive gifts, not from Santa Claus, but from The Hogfather. However, this year, The Hogfather has disappeared, and there may be no Hogswatchnight. So, it's up to Death to assume the role and fulfill all of the children's wishes. Ian Richardson narrates. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

An extraordinary adventure, and a delightful introduction to the work of Pratchett.

Audience Reviews for Hogfather

If you liked the Terry Pratchett books, you will like this. I have seen much worse mainstream sci-fi movies than this movie release straight to DVD.

This looks stunning. The cast do the best they can, which is very good, but of course very little beats your imagination when reading the book. Also, in film you lose most of the commentary which sadly means the adaptation is less funny. However this can stand alone in its own right if you give it a chance (and stop thinking about the bits they missed out, like the pencil-eating bird (my personal favourite of the created creatures)). Notable performances for me were Michelle Dockery, Ian Richardson's vocal talents, and Marc Warren's mental case of an assassin (an almost perfect portrayal of what one would expect the character to be from the book).
