Nothing of much interest happens for about an hour. This basically is saying that anyone who does not like slow films or only likes the CGI rubbish of the past decade, to stay well away.
I'm old school and love this stuff, because Christmas Evil attempts to have actors in its movie, actual charcaters remember those days, when Hollywood would actually cast someone?
There isn't much gore, but like I've said this is a good film, a good character delevlopment that studies someone going slightly insane over the festive period.
Well worth a purchase, for some true horror fans.
