Product Description

Product Description

Exactly one year ago on Christmas Eve in the small isolated town of Baileys Down, two high school students were slaughtered in a sadistic blood-soaked ritual in the basement of their school. With the crime remaining unsolved three friends decide to get to the bottom of the mystery. However what they uncover is proof of the existence of Krampus, a mythological demon and the Anti-Santa who hunts down the wicked to give them what they deserve and now he has his sights set on them.

Format: DVD
This is the same film which has the PC cover title "A Holiday Horror Story" being sold in Walmart. The film opens with 4-5 subplots and each builds slowly until the stories are connected, even if loosely connected.

1) The first subplot consists of Santa (George Buza) and his wife Marta (Debra McCabe) getting ready for Christmas when an elf zombie outbreak happens. "Stay back Jingles!"
2) Dangerous Dan (William Shatner) is a radio host on Christmas eve. He brings in the Christmas spirit by saying things like "Let's throw another eggnog on the fire." There is an unknown commotion going on at the mall.
3) Three high school kids, Dylan, Ben and Molly (Shannon Kook, Alex Ozerov, Zoé De Grand Maison ) are doing some investigative reporting at St. Joseph Academy where 2 kids were brutally killed last year. The school also has a story of a supposed virginal conception and abortion.
4) Officer Scott (Adrian Holmes) who investigated the murders is together with his wife and child this Christmas. He is setting a bad example by poaching a tree off of posted land.
5) A family visits their rich aunt (Corinne Conley) in hopes of getting her to invest in a company. While there, the insolent teen Duncan (Percy Hynes White) breaks an old statue of a Krampus.

The film takes place in the fictional town of Baily Downs (Ginger Snaps, Orphan Black). Krampus has become the latest rage in Christmas horror films, and in that regard, this one is the best. In fact, I would go as far as to say I enjoyed this as much as the iconic "Silent Night Deadly Night." There was scene where I was lulled into a false sense of security and then they made me jump. I haven't done that in a while.

This is a keeper.

It's unlikely to become a perennial Christmas favourite, but it's still good. DJ Dan (William Shatner) is a despondent radio DJ stuck pulling a long shift at the Bailey Downs radio station during Christmas. During his broadcast a series of four braided stories are witnessed: a group of teenagers break into their school to investigate a murder that happened there a year ago, a couple that discovers that their son might have something disturbingly wrong with him, a greedy family finds that their attempts to ingratiate themselves to a wealthy family member has brought about the wrath of Krampus, and a zombie outbreak at Santa's workshop who turn out to be a Mall Santa killing people in the Mall. Despite William Shatner’s steadying hand on the tiller, it’s a tad all over the place. Still, the doppelgänger sequences nicely turn the screws of paranoia, and there's something oddly fortifying about a bloody viking Saint Nick. 4 stars.

The central story of Santa and the elves is fantastic, I thought, with an utterly terrific climatic scene. However, the rest of it was all over the place. It harked back to the Amicus films of old with a compendium of short tales linked together. However in this film the structure was very unclear. The disparate stories varied in quality but failed to come together as I expected leaving the film sadly lacking. This is a pity as it had great potential.

I do like a good Christmas horror flick and this one can be added to the list - it's got some good ideas, decent jumps, fun twists and William Shatner. Good stuff.

It's a snow laden Christmas Eve in the small American town of Bailey Downs and we follow a few different townsfolk as they negotiate their own little Christmas horror stories. We get a trio of highschoolers investigating a brutal double murder, a little boy who gets lost in the woods and returns a little different, a bickering family who realise they may have been a little naughty this year and at the North Pole, even Santa and his elves are having a bloody Christmas. Amidst it all, Shatners brilliantly (un)steady hand is at the wheel, tying things together in short interludes as the local DJ pulling a double shift.

It's not an anthology film as such, the stories are told simultaneously and we jump back and forth between tales which gives the film some impetus. It plays out with a creepy atmosphere and there's the occasional good scare along the way but it's more absurdly fun rather than terrifying in any way. Stick around for the end credits to get a little more of an increasingly eggnog afflicted Shatner.

My intention is not to give a full synopsis of the movie but merely my opinion of it......

Actually a very good film. Several stories in one and although they don't link up as obviously as you might think, they definitely tie together. Sometimes horror films can leave you feeling cheated or deflated, this one definitely doesn't do that and although it's pretty creepy at times, it's not a full blown scream-fest. Enough gore to keep you interested without going overboard.

I would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys the horror genre.
