external linkA decent seasoned horror slasher. If you're into killer santas, then give this a try. It'll be worth a check around Christmas, but be sure to drink a lot of eggnog before ya watch it. 4/10

external linkEngrossing low-budgeter isn't the dumb slasher flick you'd expect because it's intelligently written, well acted and nicely made. 2.5/4

external linkIt's thoughtfully done and actually boasts some first-rate acting by all the players. More a psychological drama than anything else, the film certainly has its fan base, who compare it perhaps a little too generously to "Taxi Driver."
