But the birthday of Sinterklaas is traditionally celebrated on the 5th of December. Almost all Dutch people celebrate Sinterklaas as well as Christmas, the later with a Santa Claus similar to the one in the US - although here he's called "de kerstman" the Christmas Man. However, since it's on all the other Christmas horror lists, and I absolutely love the movie, I've decided to add it anyway. Since its release I've watched it every 5th of December.

After leaving the drive-in circuit in the early 70's the film fell into public domain and it remained obscure until the mid 80's. The copy I've seen is available on archive. It's heavily damaged, with a lots of scratches and dust. The aspect ratio is cropped and the colors are faded. The sound definitely has lost its clarity. Sometimes - when it is within limits - some of these "symptoms of old age" add to the nostalgic atmosphere. But in this case the quality of the copy is just too bad.
It makes the movie look shoddy and cheap and it doesn't deserve that. It's an interesting slasheresq horror movie with a lot of atmosphere. Very nice cinematography and some of the music definitely must have influenced John Carpenter's Halloween. Besides that, the festive season scenery is tastefully present. And some Christmas carols are cleverly intertwining with the score. R 79 min Horror, Thriller.

It contains some of the most beautiful colour imagery i've ever seen in pictures. I't is a real Christmas Horror movie and there's a lot of black comedy. It's a very cynical movie.
Most reviewers compare it to "Last House of the Left" and call it a ripp-off. I don't care for that. I'm not a fan of Craven at all. In some ways Last House is a ripp-off of "The Sadist" http: One can call every vampire movie a ripp-off of Nosferatu No one would be able to make films at all. PG 91 min Horror, Thriller. A demented widow lures unsuspecting children into her mansion in a bizarre "Hansel and Gretel" twist. A Good Christmas Horror film. Loaded with well-known names.

Very good, atmospheric Christmas horror movie, with some true chilling moments.
I think it's excellently paced - but I'm quite sure the junkfood majority will find it slow. In style it contains a bit too much modern day tropes, although on several occasions it transcends to an inspired well-executed higher level. There's actually a climatic moment with some really good original music, something that imo is very rare in today's movies.
There's not much talk, nor is everything that happens explained. Something I consider very positive. The twist at the end is a bit predictable. But I don't watch a movie only to be amazed by it's conclusion. R min Horror, Thriller.

So I watched this recently dec , but I think I must have missed a lot I dozed off a few times. So my remembrance is a bit of a confusing mess. I'm afraid I have to rewatch it But from what I can recollect, here's my opinion This type of horror, like for instance Cronenberg's Naked Lunch , is a bit too illogical to my taste.
I don't mind the amount of fantasy, but I like to know what's going on. Even movies like Images , Messiah of Evil or Let's Scare Jessica to Death seem to be more clearer, while they have a good reason to be vague. But that said, it's a potentially decent movie, crafted well enough, with a some nice scary moments as well as some likable stop-motion special effects. A lot of scenes show some Christmas decoration in the background. I cannot recall if it was ever a topic of conversation, or other way part of the plot.
But it's undeniably present. Re-watched it December My opinion on this movie has completely changed. Sure, it contains a number of supernatural elements, and - as in a lot of of horror movies - it pretty much defies logic, but nonetheless it wasn't at all confusing.

A Catholic priest teams up with a Black Metal aficionado and an Italian connoisseur of the occult to avert the birth of the beast, and with it, the end of the world. I have no idea why I liked it that much the first time I had seen it. It's a black comedy - but it seems to aim its arrows at metalheads who value anything "political incorrect" as a big hoot by default.

This Christmas special, which can be easily watched on its own, is a very funny, extremely well-made horrific anthology in three parts.

The second and the best in my opinion features the German exchange teacher Herr Lipp in a Nosferatu skit that reveals the terrible truth about what really goes on in Duisburg The third tells of the horrible hereditary curse that afflicted Dr Chinnery's great-grandfather.

She receives a fourth visitor in the form of carnival ringmaster Papa Lazarou, the most terrifying Santa Claus you could imagine.

Several outdoor scenes show snowy surroundings. Other scenes that don't are still fine, convincing, atmospheric depictions of the last month of year.
