Trivia

The segment, "St. Patrick's Day", references the Norwegian folktale "The Lindworm Prince", also known as simply "The Lindworm". While there are several versions of the folktale, the version anthologized in the seminal Asbjornsen and Moe Collection is the most popular one. The folktale tells of a queen giving birth to a snake creature and when the creature is born, it flees into the land. When the creature grows up, it becomes a prince. See more »

Stopped Watching Half Way Through - Snoozefest
16 April 2016 | by nysalesmanSee all my reviews

I tried to like and watch this movie, but I just couldn't take it anymore. Overall, each successive story was no better than the last. I keep getting heat for giving so many negative reviews. How can I be blamed when Hollywood and the movie producers refuse to make a decent movie anymore? Who the heck is funding this crap?

Basically, the movie's production values are OK and the acting (while lacking emotion) is pretty good. The stories, however, come across like they were rushed and written as filler material. Each story starts with a holiday as the background premise and leads you down a nonsensical path, creating many questions along the way, and then just ends. Yes, just ends. Not one of these stories (to be fair not one of the half that I saw) had an ending. They simply end with no closure and without answering even one of the questions they create along the way. This is nothing more than super lazy writing.

Of course the cop-out answer from the creators of this crap are that the movie is sophisticated and is not for everyone. They say that to get the brain dead idiots who don't want to appear stupid to agree with them, so I'm sure there will be reviewers saying the movie was above most peoples heads (even thought he people saying this will have no idea what the movie was about). First of all, it's not supposed to be sophisticated - it's a horror movie! Yes there are some horror movies that are sophisticated and are brilliant (The Sixth Sense for one), but they are few and far between. To call this movie sophisticated would be the dictionary definition of an oxymoron. Watch Christmas Horror Stories instead, it is a far better anthology movie than this trash.
