Quotes

Chris: I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I've lost my influence. Maybe it's time I retired the coat.
Ruth: You still have it...
Chris: Some kids with a deer rifle put two holes in the sleigh and one in me! All I have is a loathing for a world that's forgotten me.

The Christmas movie 2020 deserves
20 November 2020 | by ravencorinncarlukSee all my reviews

Just funny enough not to be too grim or dark, but just straight enough to be tense, and ever so slightly surreal. Acting is pretty good, and the story is a darker version of the normal holiday fare. I found it thoroughly watchable, and really enjoyed the ending.
