Tis the season, isn’t it? No, I’m not generically recommending this movie because it’s horror and Christmas related. I actually finally got around to watching it because someone else couldn’t stop talking about the damned thing. Honestly, I expected a slasher. That’s all. A slasher with a guy in a Christmas suit…I didn’t expect to actually care about the guy in a way, or to actually find a real moral behind most of the story. I certainly didn’t mean to find out the true meaning of Christmas.

But…I did, I did, and I definitely did.

 

If you’ve done Black Christmas (the original and the remake) to death, don’t find Gremlins has enough bite to it anymore, and could very well strangle the next teeny-bopper with a Jack Skellington wrist bracelet, then maybe check out Christmas Evil this year.

In a way, Krampus almost tried to communicate a little of what I got from Christmas Evil, but they were too caught up in the flash, the spectacle, etc. This one had a great balance. I couldn’t help but think as I watched it that ‘yeah, if a guy really did decide to become Santa Clause, this is probably how he’d do it.’

Drive-in Trailers: Weird Science

Plastic tubes and pots and pans, bits and pieces and magic from the hand…yadda yadda yadda. Let’s be honest, nobody understands the misunderstood genius. That’s why they end up wreaking havoc on villagers and/or countrysides with their creations. Well, they also tend to be evil. There’s that too. Whether it’s a gold bikini or a disembodied head, though…I think we can all agree mad scientists are pretty creepy. Yes, Woody Allen isn’t a horror director, but you really can’t forget the mad scientist in that one…
