Did You Know?


This film was adapted from director/writer Mike Lombardo's short story of the same name from the book "A Very StrangeHouse Christmas" (2013). According to Mike, he wrote the story at a time when things in his personal life were dark; notably, his mother was hospitalized for kidney failure, which is why the story's protagonist is a mother trying to shield someone she cares about from the reality of the situation. Mike also chose Christmas as a backdrop for the story because he wanted to explore the loss of the magic and innocence of childhood. See more »

I feel like Im Taking Crazy Pills: Absolutely Abhorrent
13 October 2018 | by LuminousIntelSee all my reviews

Yeah, I saw this in a horror film fest and myself and several other people were legitimately laughing through several scenes that were not meant to be funny. This is sincerely one of the worst films I've ever seen. Not just horror, of any genre. Notice how nearly every one of these reviews is 10/10. Do not believe these. It was all absolutely terrible, sincerely, the acting, the pace, the audio, the writing, and worst of all the damn direction. I'm not a critic, I'm just a horror fan and saw this at an independent horror film fest. I literally fell asleep an 45 min in and I've never done that in a horror movie in my life. HORRID direction, honestly. I want to write a letter to the hour and ten minutes I spent watching this horrible waste of time and let it know how much I miss it. I'll never get that time back. The director should be ashamed for calling this horror and making people sit through such a terribly slow piece of crap. I'm in awe how you can be a director in the film industry today and be in the editing room working on this movie without questioning the pacing and direction here. I am beyond disbelief as to how anyone could submit such drek without being humiliated. Dispicable
