Joseph's (Phil Herman) wandering the woods one wintery day when he finds a
bunch of magic cones - cones that tell him some rather horrible Christmas
- All Chopped Up and Nowhere to Go: Drudge (Joel D. Wynkoop)
hates Christmas and makes sure that his wife (M, Catherine Wynkoop)
and deaf son suffer from it - but it takes a turn for the even worse
when his wife's best friend (Vera Marlowe) just wishes him a Merry
- The Best Company: This Christmas, there's apparently a
serialkiller (Walter Alonso) in tow who collects body parts - and he's
got a perfectly macabre reason for this, too. Thing is, two can play
that game ...
- Re-Gifting: Suzette's (Debbie D) boyfriend Donald (Jim Ewald)
apparently is the sweetest, he's mindful, lets her have the lead in
their relationship, and heck, he even has agreed to postpone sex until
she feels right about it, and it has been three months they're
together already. But then on Christmas Eve, he shows his true face,
and shows how much he wants her - but not in the way she has expected
Fan favourite Deborah Dutch makes an appearance in this one.
- Christmas Rvenge: Santa Claus (A.J. Laird), the real one, is
captured and tortured by Curtis (Justin Bower), because Curtis thinks
he has seduced his mother all these years back, which broke up the
family. But Santa still has an ace or two up his sleeve ...
With all the stories told we find out why Joseph had to endure all
these horrible stories - and the reason sure isn't pretty ...
An anthology that has a bit of everything in terms of horror, from the
clever to the exploitative, from the humourous to the gory, and sometimes
everything all at once, and as it is with anthologies, especially with
different directors involved, quality varies a little between the
different segments, but overall, the movie's a lot of fun and offers a
great variety of what Christmas horror can be like, and it's more than
likely that fans of all kind of indie horror will find something or
probably plenty to like in this one.
