Download Christmas Bloody Christmas Movie
It’s Christmas Eve and fiery record store owner Tori Tooms just wants to get drunk and party, until the robotic Santa Claus at a nearby toy store goes haywire and makes her night more than a little complicated.
This is a gruesome slice of holiday cruelty that knows exactly what it is and doesn’t try to be anything else, and that’s exactly as it should be.
The overall vibe here ends up being less “good dirty fun” than “foul-mouthed teenager trying to look cool.
Like Begos’ last couple of movies, Christmas Bloody Christmas plays out like a fuzzy, half-remembered recreation of the psychotronic cinema of Begos’ adolescence.
Christmas Bloody Christmas is an unabashed holiday treat that knows exactly what it is and what its audience is hoping to get from a “killer robot Santa” horror film.
The dialogue in the first half plays like a grating straight bro fantasy, but Tori and Robbie have good chemistry. The kills are fun and the Terminator references are appreciated, though the climax overstays its welcome
Visually striking, never dull, and at times, shocking. It’s a neon-drenched, grainy 16mm metal blasting wild ride: think Silent Night Deadly Night with The Terminator directed by Rob Zombie with a little High Fidelity character flavor thrown in.
Santa Claus begins a rampant killing spree through the neon drenched snowscape against a backdrop of drugs, sex, metal and violence, ultimately forcing Tori into a blood splattered battle for survival against the ruthless heavy metal Saint Nick himself.
