A funny, sick, gory Christmas tale
4 December 2018 | by hampersnow-28905See all my reviews

Secret Santa is one of the blackest most depraved Christmas flicks I have ever seen and I loved it. If sweet, wholesome tales of Christmas turn your stomach and you're in the mood to both laugh, gag and scream this is your movie. Well cast and well acted, an extended family gathers for a Christmas dinner that you will not easily forget. Obviously low budget, but well written, the insults and plenty of gore fly. Thoroughly enjoyable from beginning to end. My only complaint would be that the cinematography left something to be desired, the film is a bit too high contrast and could have been better lit. Some of the dialogue also could have been better recorded, but it's still a fun ride and not one for children.
