Man, we were not ready for how much the Horror Society loved our anti-holiday film, Christmas Blood. If adjectives were pelvic thrusts, we’d be happily smoking a cigarette by now.
“Ho ho… oh, this one’s pretty good. I know that this time of the year is littered with Christmas horror releases, but honestly, Christmas Blood is easily one of the top two films in the catalog. It’s singlehandedly the best Christmas slasher since Steven Miller’s Silent Night remake. Christmas Blood is so moody it’s almost depressing, which is awesome considering most Christmas movies are filled with holiday cheer and bright lights. This one, in particular, is dark and angsty, and doesn’t leave much room for sympathy as the killer Santa turns his victims into gory messes on the floor or red snow mounds in the street. He’s absolutely brutal and unstoppable, and the perfect villain for a movie that’s supposed to be about love and the gift of giving. The atmosphere is so palpable that you start to forget it’s Christmas time in Norway, and wherever you live as you’re watching, and it’s almost like Christmas Blood becomes an amazing year-round slasher instead of just a December slasher. It’s magical, for sure. Props to writer/director/producer Reinert Kiil, producer Joachim Lyng, cinematographer Benjamin Mosli, editor Silje Rekk and special effects lead Elisabeth Mainy for working in tandem to make Christmas Blood as cohesively bleak as it is retro, suspenseful and chaotic. Few have succeeded in making a Yule Tide title this successful. I didn’t even mind the subtitles! The cinematography, the villain and his epic kills stole the show and are the highlight of the movie. All the actors and actresses involved with this picture did a fantastic job. Christmas Blood is a shocking, brutal movie with splendid splattering practical effects. Its body count is large and epic…Throw in one genuine jump scare and one sadistic as Hell death sequence and Christmas Blood is the perfect present for gore fans. It’s no secret that I loved this movie. It’s a sleeper hit and has so much unexpected material for such a generic synopsis. This is the movie of the season that you don’t want to miss! Final Score: 8.5 out of 10″ – MGDSQUAN, HorrorSociety
