It's a Wonderful Life. A Christmas Story... Deadly Xmas?
23 November 2017 | by snoopduckyduckSee all my reviews

I had to post a review after I read a string of negative ones here. I thought this second installment in the Caesar & Otto series was hilarious.

It's a low budget flick, to be sure, but director David Campfield uses that to his comic advantage. If you're watching the movie and thinking "this low budget movie has terrible effects and acting", you're missing the joke and you're going to give reviews like the others.

Campfield obviously knows he can't fake a big budget movie, so not only does he let the effects look cheap, he ensures it. The movie is silly, self aware, and campy. It's clearly deliberate because you can see that it is also very well done. The editing, the music, the screenplay (despite what another reviewer said), the cinematography...

One reviewer said the effects looked realistic. I hate to disagree with someone who also thought highly of the film, but his generosity misses the joke.

The movie's not perfect. A couple jokes were a little over the top, but most of them worked well.

I love the C&O movies. This isn't as good as Summer Camp Massacre, but still ranks a close second. I admire that these movies don't take themselves seriously, are more comedy than horror, are great parodies of their genres, and have endings more satisfying than most horror movies. It's never just some crazed maniac killing people for no good reason; it's always well thought out.

As of writing this review, Deadly Xmas has a 4.1. It deserves a lot better.
