While I'm Away...



Soooo, I've been absent from the Blogosphere for a while and I will most likely continue to be until January. I'm visiting family in the Pacific Northwest, which I am thoroughly enjoying. However, the internet connection is not great and it's kind of strange to steal someone else's computer to complete a blog entry. Plus, I'm already borrowing computers to complete applications for grad school/law school.

I hope everyone is having a great time gearing up for the holidays. Please share how you plan to celebrate below, especially if those plans involve watching a Christmas-themed horror film. I plan on revisiting the original Black Christmas. I've only seen it once or twice and it's been a few years. I'll be sure to report on that.

In the meantime, here is an old review of Christmas Evil that I dug up. Want to know what I thought of it? Here's a hint. Lessons learned from watching this move: 1) Marketing is Evil and 2) Poorly-acted character studies can never replace a slasher. Merry Christmas!

  1. I actually just posted a review of the film too and I had very different thoughts about it over all. I actually loved it, but can see someone not liking it if they were to expect a Santa Slasher.

    SPOILER ALERT!!
    I will say in defense of the ending, Harry is completely nuts, as you know and if you listen closely, you hear a crash as if the van actually doesn't fly away, but hits the ground. What is shown on screen is Harry's imagination, or how it would end for him at least.

    Check out Silent Night, Bloody Night for a decent Christmas Slasher. Not perfect, but a very interesting film. Also, Don't Open 'Till Christmas is at times pretty awesome, but at others, not so much. Still, both films make for a good time during the holidays!

  5. Luckily someone gave me a heads up on Christmas Evil because I totally thought it was a Santa slasher as well.

    More importantly - Good luck with the law school plans Becky and have a happy holiday season! Look forward to your return!! Be safe but have FUN!
