Critic Reviews for Holidays

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (5)

Some of the films are haunting, some of them more macabre, but all of them play with holiday symbolism in way that will make viewers rethink a lot of their favorite celebrations.

"Holidays" is frustrating because its creators all have something good going for them, but almost consistently have no ideas of what to do.

The film mostly feels perfunctory and awkward - like calling home at Christmas.

Top Critic

Like a family dinner with an eccentric uncle, Holidays' quirkiness is fitfully entertaining, but ultimately exhausting.

Seeing how visionaries new and old foster an idea of things that go bump in the night is what keeps viewers coming back for more, and when anthologies add as many twists as Holidays, aficionados are always ready for the next installment.

If you don't connect the stories in a smart way (say, having the same actors play different roles in each story, or tying each narrative together with a single theme) or provide a great 10-15 minute story, what's the point?

Audience Reviews for Holidays

Patchy, but enough good stories to make it a worthwhile watch. I liked the Halloween, Xmas and St Patrick's day the best. The others were missable.

One fantastic short (Father's Day), one good (New Year's), the rest duds.

In terms of horror anthology, it's pretty middle of the road. Worth the watch for the aficionado, but certainly won't convert anyone who hasn't already surrendered their life to the Horror Movie Gods (except maybe the Halloween and Father's Day segments. Those were pretty good).
