Surprisingly good...
2 April 2020 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I didn't know what "Holiday Hell" was before I sat down to watch it, aside from it being a horror movie of some sort. Which, actually, was enough to make me have an interest in sitting down to watch it.

Turns out that "Holiday Hell" is a horror anthology, and actually a good one at that. Needless to say my surprise and excitement when I saw Jeffrey Combs appear on the screen. I didn't know he was in it, and he is definitely one of my all-time favorite actors in the horror genre. And I must say that he was quite good in the role of the shopkeeper, the one presenting each individual segment of the anthology.

Without going too much into detail with each segment, I will say that they individually were interesting. Sure, they weren't the most fulfilling of storytelling and could seem a bit shallow at times. But they were entertaining enough and that served the purpose for me. Some segments were, of course, better than others. Personally, I actually found the in-between-segments to be the most entertaining and enjoyable, as it was a story in itself, and it had Jeffrey Combs in it.

The had a good ensemble of actors and actresses on the cast list for the various roles in the segments. And that definitely helped to lift up and carry the segments afloat.

The effects in "Holiday Hell" were fair enough, and served their intended purpose. Don't expect to be blown away by over the top impressive special effects and CGI, because then you'll be disappointed. However, the effects were there and they fulfilled their function.

I enjoyed "Holiday Hell" for what it was, and it was definitely nice to sit down and watch this one. My rating for the 2019 horror anthology "Holiday Hell" is a six out of ten stars.
