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.
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.
Gory and offensive, but lacking in the scare department.
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.
Red Christmas is a solid, goofy and disturbing slasher that'll have you wary of unannounced visitors during the holidays.
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.
Underneath the warm, if cynical, family sentiment, Red Christmas is a dark and luridly coloured home invasion film.
A nasty, unpleasant, poorly constructed, and confused movie I was anxious to see end.
One of the most beautifully lit and photographed horror films since Dario Argento's Suspiria.
Overall Red Christmas provides much more in the way of balanced perspective and nuance than many a serious drama on the subject.
"Red Christmas" avoids complete tastelessness due to Wallace's sincerity, and it's a shame she isn't the sole focus of the film.
Red Christmas is solely for those horror fans who enjoy cheap, CHEAP thrills and low budget fodder (and hopefully a ton of spiked eggnog).
