Goofs

The film takes place in New England at Thanksgiving time. The characters are walking around in shorts and short sleeved shirts. If the filmmakers had spent any time in New England in November, they would know that it's way too cold to walk around in shorts and short-sleeved shirts. See more »

even 70 minutes isn't short enough.
5 February 2012 | by (Lisle, IL) – See all my reviews

in some movies brevity is the movie's saving grace. a film that would be terrible at 100 minutes is quite tolerable at 87 minutes. at a mere seventy minutes Thankskilling is brief but not quite mercifully so. The movie begins to recycle it's own out-of-date pop culture jokes somewhere along the thirty minute mark. This should tell you where it stands at 70. The acting is amateurish to the point of annoyance. The plot stupid and poorly thought out. The special effects are bad, but not bad in a good way. Those hoping for an Eli Roth style Thankgiving will be sorely let down. Generally a movie like this would throw in generous heaps of female nudity to make up for it's utterly slipshod nature. not so here. The silly horror Jack Frost does this same thing a million times better. Don't bother.
