Christmas Evil(Review)(Horrordays Edition)[Twisted Throwback Thursday]
It is Christmas Eve, so what better time to review a movie called Christmas Evil aka You Better Watch Out aka Terror in Toyland. The movie is about a man obsessed with Santa Claus to the point he actually believes he is Santa, going so far as dressing like him and he keeps good and naughty lists of the children. He eventually snaps, and decides to go on a killing spree.
I will says this movie is very slow going as the killings really don't get started until almost halfway through. Even with that being said, this is a movie that doesn't offer much excitement if that's what you are looking for. You wouldn't expect a movie about a killer Santa to boring, but that's exactly how I found it to be. You are mostly watching this unhinged man going through his daily routine with not much happening. The ending has him being chased by a torch bearing mob, like he is Frankenstein or something, and even that ends on a dull note.
Watch it if there's nothing else on, I could think of other more exciting holiday horror movies to watch, but I will recommend if you do watch it, watch the Last Drive-In Christmas Special version as that makes it a little more exciting. You can find both that and the movie by itself on Shudder.
Till next time, stay safe and Happy Horrordays!! -Tha Thrilla-
