Well It Is What It Is
12 June 2017 | by milesjenkinsSee all my reviews

Do to a limited budget the special effects in this film are "Terrible" which spoils the overall film however the story does deliver.

What this is about is that a woman (Nicole de Boer) discovers the spirit of Christmas while visiting her estranged father in a town that is decked out for the holidays.

While in town her son discovers the town secret and try's to convince his mom that "All is Not What It Seems".

Now the last shot in this film is laughable. It looks like they spent $5 on a fake Santa Sleigh but the film is still one of those you will enjoy watching with your small children.

Now many people hate this film but I think they just "Hate Christmas Movies".
