    Best Christmas Horror Movie!!!!!!!

    Red Christmas is sure to grow a cult following in the years to come. Australian Director, Craig Anderson, fearlessly tackles the very taboo topic of abortion in this controversial family drama turned 80's slasher film. Dee Wallace (E.T., Cujo, The Howling) gives an award-winning performance as a mother struggling with her past when it knocks on the door on Christmas. Equally impressive is real life Down Syndrome actor, Gerard O'Dwyer, who plays Dee's son and finding out how his disability possibly even plays heavy into the weight of the story. Of course, the focal point is 'Cletus' the mysterious black cloaked stranger who comes across as The Elephant Man meets The Ghost of Christmas Past. This holiday visitor turns life and social views upside down but despite it's dramatic theme, it never takes itself too seriously. It's a clever mix of 'Black Christmas' meet 'Suspiria' that should be added to any fan's Christmas horror collection.

    Good... but could've been better

    This film was good overall, but it could've been better with a bigger production budget. My only complaint is the death scenes themselves. kills are not show in their entirety. For example: If someone is being impaled with a weapon, a moment of the weapon penetrating a victim may be shown, then the camera pulls away. This may be followed by a camera shot of the victim dead already. You will not witness a close up of the entire death. Apparently this is derived by a limited budget for fx effects. Other than that, everything else is what you would expect. A nice decent slasher film.
