A great Christmas story...
11 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the most cohesive and professional student films I have ever seen. A joy to watch. I wonder why Mr. Torrens held back on the language. Was he trying to get a PG rating or something?

I really appreciate the hard work put in by him and his crew. I thought the set design, the make-up, and special effects were top notch for a film like this. This film is practically begging to be made into a feature. Unfortunately, the "Bad Santa" movie has kind of taken this tale, although "Coming to Town", as a premise, is ten times better than bad Santa.

I also thought the acting was great, especially the lead and his elves. Howard and Mark Parr are comic geniuses.
