Nothing says Christmas horror like spreading Yule tide cheer with some murderous children! I have to admit, there have been a good number of “killer kids” done in horror so I didn’t expect much with this movie seeing as I hadn’t even heard of it until recently.

Trading on the commonly held opinion that Hollyoaks is “rubbish”, Amstell enquired as to why the producer didn’t try to make it better. The answer came that they did make it better, but people stopped watching.
Even by the not-so-great standards that soaps are measured, Hollyoaks has always been firmly towards the bottom of the ladder. The fictional Chester suburb where the majority of inhabitants are extraordinarily good looking but also extraordinarily stupid has been identified by its often wildly outlandish storylines and impossibly pretty people. »
