Craig Anderson's Red Christmas isn't exactly a lump of coal in your stocking, but neither is it worth waking up early for on the big day.

Aug 31, 2017 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Mostly, it's a tightly constructed, unapologetically nasty little thriller, given depth and weight by Wallace's interpretation of a sweet woman suffering for her past.

Aug 24, 2017 | Full Review…

Gory and offensive, but lacking in the scare department.

Aug 23, 2017 | Full Review…

An energetic, candy-colored romp through genre tropes that manages to take its subject matter seriously while poking fun at itself at the same time.

Top Critic

Red Christmas is a solid, goofy and disturbing slasher that'll have you wary of unannounced visitors during the holidays.

Dec 22, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Despite some energy and inventiveness, the film is stuck in a mostly listless zone between taking itself too seriously and having fun with its exploitative elements.

Audience Reviews for Red Christmas


A rather poorly made horror film, Red Christmas doesn't deliver any scares. The story follows a family celebrating Christmas in the Australian countryside that is visited by a mysterious stranger looking to settle some unfinished business. Except for Dee Wallace the acting is universally bad, and the script isn't much better. But it's the directing that really damns the film. The kill scenes are poorly shot and there's no tension or suspense to them. And the special effects are terrible; particularly the creature make-up, which is downright laughable. Red Christmas is an amateurish film that doesn't work at all.
