This review is from: Christmas Evil  (Region 1)(NTSC) [DVD] [US Import] (DVD)
As a huge horror fan of 70's/80's horror I was delighted to rewatch this movie. A movie I had not seen in over 20 years.
This is a little known film, that not many people have heard of. The basic story is that our lead character is mentally and sexually disturbed as a boy and grows up loving Christmas but hating anyone who does not share the Christmas spirit. In fact he still has a child's mind as an adult.
Though this is a horror film the first kill and spot of blood does not happen until almost an hour through. But as you will see this is a good thing. Because unless your brain has been trained on more recent shock and splat horror movies, you should be able to appreciate the tension in this movie. It never lets up and character builds very well.
This is an essential purchase for the horror fan and is worth repeated viewings. There is even a nod to older King Kong movies near the climax.
The ending of the movie I shall of course not reveal but be expected to be surprised.
Overall a great movie that surprisingly only has a 4.4 rating out of 10 on IMDB.
Maybe some people just don't know their horror?

I wouldn't take much notice of IMDb, low scores of classic horror films is nothing new on there. I agree though this is a christmas classic and one I like to watch every year.
