Goofs

Prior to Suzanne's parents visiting her at the hotel where she stays, the exterior shot of the hotel shows it as a Marriott. When Suzanne answers the door, the evacuation information card affixed to the inside of the door has a Hampton Inn logo on it. Hampton Inn is in the Hilton hotel chain, not the Marriott hotel chain.

A Gem of a Dark Comedy
8 December 2013 | by RealDualitySee all my reviews

The obscene and mundane nature of this film will throw some people off, but dark comedies aren't suppose to avoid disturbances, drabness, or oddity. The Director, Zach Clark, manages to convey great emotion in everyday occurrences, sometimes without dialogue, which is quite a feat. He does it in a different type of Christmas movie that is centered around a tragedy, but which has a humorous touch that keeps it entertaining, and that conveys ideas with a real heart. Though Anna Margaret Hollyman isn't well-known, she does a great job anchoring the film as a character who desperately wants it to feel like Christmas despite being overcome with grief. If you enjoy dark humor and don't need a movie to lecture you, or be overly puritanical, I highly recommend White Reindeer. It is a low-budget classic.
