Audience Reviews for Películas para no dormir: Cuento de navidad (Films to Keep You Awake: The Christmas Tale)
This is part of the 6 Film Series of Films to Keep You Awake at night, This is a neat little film, Spanish horror well written story line would like to see more of these type films on the US market. This is not your usual Christmas Story, but an excellent slasher / horror film. A group of kids discover a passed out Santa in the bottom of a well, what they find out its a she and she has just finished robbing a bank and the kids put her threw hell to find out where the money is, after they find out where the money is, she dies or does she, is she coming back as a zombie, the ending is really twisted and the make up is over the top, Got to give this one 5 stars
This is the second time I've seen this movie. I really enjoyed it. It was pretty funny, and the acting was pretty decent. The plot was very....interesting, kind of weird, but original. The only problem with the movie I had was the very end. The ending sucked, and it still leaves you with a bunch of unanswered questions. At the end, it's not at all clear about what happened, so there's some confusion. Other than the ending, it wasn't bad. Definitely one of the better FearNet movies I've seen. It's definitely worth a watch.
A good and highly watchable little film. "The Christmas Tale" takes place in a Spanish coastal town over the Christmas of 1985. It involves five children (one of which most of you will now as Ofelia from "Pan's Labyrinth") who find a woman dressed as Santa Claus trapped in a hole in the woods. They soon find out that she is actually a wanted criminal who has just stolen a load of money. Hopeful that they will get the cash themselves they leave the woman in the hole with no food until she decides to give it to them. The kids then become divided as to whether to leave her there or get her out, yet two of them, inspired by the film "Zombie Invasions" perform a voodoo ceremony leading to some terrible consequences. At only 70 minutes long the story never loses your attention, and being set in the 80s there are some great cultural references. The kids themselves are like a Spanish version of The Goonies and there is an amusing parody of old zombie films. There is also a great scene where the woman is waiting in an empty disco, axe in hand, looking for the children whilst "Yes Sir, I Can Boogie" plays over it. This film is actually part of a Spanish TV series called "Six films To Keep You Awake". Whilst I haven't seen the rest, if they are anything like "The Christmas Tale" they will be worth seeking out.
