Storyline

"One Hell of a Christmas" is a dark and action packed comedy that takes place in a modern city as well as in a fearful underworld. When Carlitos is released after doing 2 years of "hard time", he attempts to redeem himself and sets an example for his 5 year-old son. However, when a friend confronts him with a very dark and horrifying scam for some quick dough and good times, he declines, but never the less he soon finds himself entangled in a web of sex, drugs and Christmas carols. Written by Marcella Lindstad <marcella@wise-guy.dk>

Dude, you guys are harsh!!!
28 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I liked this flick, everybody else on here keeps busting its jingle bells because of the budget, but to tell you the truth I was impressed that they put something that good together, with what they had to work with...I would recommend this movie to any student filmmaker as well anyone else. I mean honestly does a movie really need a multi million dollar budget, and a buncha well fed Hollywood hams to be watchable...I mean for all you guys that are dissing it, you sure seem to know it form the opening credits to the end! Perosanally, i think its so sad that so many self proclaimed film gurus on the net have such a cynical attitude, towards the B-movie side of the horror genre (must admit though I have seen some crummy low budget flicks e.i. drive in 'gag')
