A series of stupid, baffling, and pointless horror segments that go nowhere...

Murder, paranormal pregnancies, and damn creepy kids dominate the octaptych, the parts of which waver between clever -- if not straight up unnerving -- and banal.

Every single segment in Holidays is of a certain quality and every single one holds your attention. Some are just more refined and impactful than others.

As is (almost) always the case with anthology films, Holidays is best described as a "mixed bag." And yet it's the wildly different collection of tones, attitudes, and storytelling styles that makes the collection so interesting.

It's a middle-of-the-road anthology but boasts great energy and a sense of humor that runs throughout, helping make even the mediocre entries watchable.

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 not worth celebrating.

"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.

Holidays has one story that's a dud, two that are okay but would have been better longer, and five that are solid. That's more than enough for a recommendation.

Holidays is certainly one of the better anthology offerings of recent years.

The weakest segments are watchable and the best are genuinely good.

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

Taking a more straightforward approach to deadly events, "Holidays" is an engaging addition to the growing collection of anthology efforts.

While each entry satisfies in its own unique way, the anthology as a whole makes for an impressive examination of distaff fears and underestimated ferocity.

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.

Delivering more than disappointing, Holidays is sinister holiday fun for the whole f$#ked up family.

Every short exudes a commercially slick anonymity that effectively flattens any potential excitement.

Lots of mediocrity here, but two of the shorts -- "Easter" and "Father's Day" -- make it worth the price of admission.
