Watch Now on Netflix: A Christmas Horror Story (2015)
Just in time for Krampusnacht and the holidays you can catch the horror anthology film A Christmas Horror Story streaming on Netflix! I had my doubts about this movie, because, let's face it, horror anthologies can be hit-or-miss, and a holiday horror anthology just sounds like a cash in. However, when I saw it last year I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it! I watched it again tonight and it was even better the second time around.
The synopsis: Not even Santa Claus is safe from the evil that descends on Bailey Downs, a small town that is suddenly plagued with malevolent spirits, zombie elves and Krampus - the anti-Santa Claus.
I like how the anthology covered so many unique stories, from Krampus to zombie elves to evil ghosts to changelings to Santa and William Shatner playing a small-town DJ. The film jumps between different stories pretty effortlessly, and this method of presenting the story keeps things fresh and interesting. The effects, acting, and writing were all solid, plus there are some great bloody action sequences and an ending that got me like whoa!
A Christmas Horror Story is a fun holiday horror film and one of my new favorite Christmas movies, one I'll make a tradition of watching every December. You can watch A Christmas Horror Story now on Netflix or on Amazon!
