Oh my God, it's like watching that tape from "The Ring": Deadly Little Christmas (2009)


Deadly Little Christmas (2009)
Rating:1/2
starring: Barbara Jean Barrielle, Charlotte Barrielle andAnthony Campanello
My sentiments exactly, Peter Griffin

I bought this DVD hoping its gonna be one of those low-budget decent looking SOV but what I saw instead was one of the most God awful shot on "shiteo" movies in my entire life. Here's one point down to the DIY culture everybody.

Deadly Little Christmas starts with the usual "years ago" prologue in the same fashion of Halloween (1978), a boy murdered his nanny and his own father, after finding them doing the most tamest bedroom exercise I've ever seen. He knifed them to death and walks out blood caked, while his sister watched in horror.

Fast forward to today, the boy, now a young adult, escaped, and a series of murders inevitably started as someone in a hoodie and the cheapest Halloween mask is knifing people around a local play (if you would like to call it that) to death, while stalking the boy's still troubled sister and his mother. Do I care to explain more? No, not really...

Obviously shot on a string budget (I would say "shoestring" but, I highly doubt they can afford even that.), Deadly Little Christmas rip-offs every known Halloween rip-offs out there and gave us this rather stale entry. People overreacts to their deaths, like one guy getting a knife to his temple and he convoluted for 15 to 20 seconds, or another getting knifed on the neck and he made the most outrageous death face ever. Props are obviously re-used over and over again (is that a stage? or a bomb shelter?), make-up and special effects are dodgy (people get stabbed, but they have no stab wounds and that's obviously a prank knife they're using. I know, cuz every kid in my neighborhood had one those last Halloween...) and the sounds are terrible (WHAT? SPEAK UP! I'M LOSING YOU-WAIT THE MOVIE'S OVER? WHAT HAPPENED?). The only good thing about this is the bravery of these cast to act and the decent twist in the end, though not that original.

You know what, I'm not gonna write another paragraph for this film. DUMP IT! HARDLY WORTH THE CASH!

  1. It was while looking for reviews of this to add to IMDB that I discovered this website.

    I did kind of like the mask, even though I haven't the foggiest as to what it was supposed to be. And the sisters were kind of cute... that's all the positives I can muster.

    2. Guess so.

      But we can just pretend it was something better.

      Like almost anything.
