Storyline

It's Christmas in Australia as Diane, played by the Dee Wallace, brings together her estranged family for a chaotic holiday gathering. A 20 year old decision literally comes back to haunt her when the ghost of Christmas past comes knocking at her door and is invited inside the family estate. Festivities quickly turn blood red, when the stranger is revealed to be Cletus, Diane's aborted fetus, all grown up, very much alive and ready to terrorize his long lost mother. Diane must face her past and explain the hideous truth that is trying to kill them all, especially to Jerry, her Down Syndrome son, before it's too late. Written by Michael Joy

The concept idea was great, the movie not so much...
17 June 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

When I read the synopsis for this movie and saw that Dee Wallace was in it, I did decide to give it a go, because the movie had the potential of actually being a fun movie.

As it turned out, then "Red Christmas" has a very poorly written storyline, and was equally poorly executed on the screen. The storyline was so generic and predictable that it was insulting to the audience.

The cast were doing good jobs with whatever little material they had to work with, and as expected it was Dee Wallace that carried the movie most of the way.

"Red Christmas" had adequate special effects, although it made no sense that a woman could be chopped in two by a single blow with an axe.

The characters were generic and one-dimensional, and you didn't really connect with any of them.

This was hardly a memorable movie in any way, and it doesn't have the contents to support more than just a single viewing. All in all, don't really bother with this movie unless you have nothing better to watch or if you are a die-hard fan of anyone on the cast list.
