    Fans of horror comedies should enjoy this. Justin Long is fabulous in his role and, while quirky, it doesn't skimp on the blood and horror. There's also genuine tension to the horror and there's plety of invention in the kills. It's not perfect - but it's a fun holidays / horror cross-over.

    Kinda fun as long as you don't take it too seriously!

    That was a huge waste of our movie night.

    This is basically the cinematic equivalent of "we got McDonalds at home". Like most Scream knockoffs, it has a moment or two, but like the movie's killer, it's a pale imitation of its inspiration. It has a fun premise with potential, but unfortunately it goes nowhere. Where other movies of a similar style like Freaky and Happy Death Day succeed in playing to the strengths of their campy gimmicks, this one fails spectacularly. It's so poorly written I wouldn't be surprised to find out it's an AI creation. The one thing that does work is the cast. They do the best they can with the lazy schlock they were given, but charm only goes so far. If you already have Shudder and nothing better to do, it's not the worst Christmas themed slasher out there. But if you're currently suffering from seasonal depression, this definitely won't help.

    Surely won't take home an Oscar for best picture, but it's good fun nonetheless. If you enjoy holiday horror or B-movies this will not disappoint!

    Not sure why this movie got as high of critic scores and even higher audience scores? This movie is awful. The story is so dumb. Complete waste of time watching this forgettable garbage.

    The best Christmas horror in YEARS. Great retelling of "It's a Wonderful Life"; Jane Widdop is now one of my favorite final girls, and I think I have myself another yearly spooky Christmas season film to watch. OH, and Justin Long's Angel Killer is the best addition of a slasher villain since Happy Death Day's Babyface? Director Tyler McIntyre delivers AGAIN, and writer Michael Kennedy… I love you man.

    Finally a good Christmas slasher movie. Jane Widdop and Justin Long are excellent, and I would've love to see more of Katharine Isabelle. The story is solid and works perfecty with the 87min runtime. Beautiful lighting and color palletes, and the whole cast is talented and gorgeous. The soundtrack is good, and powerful in very specific moments. The only reason it doesn't get 5-stars it's because the movie kinda forgets it's a slasher during the second half, and the killings aren't that great anymore. But there's nothing really bad about it, I enjoyed it from start to finish. My new favorite Christmas movie. Sequel please? Thanks.
