Past Interviews…cast and crew from “The Nights Before Christmas”Regan Macaulay
Dir. Paul Tanter) WORLD PREMIERE (101 mins) A year on from the Woodridge massacre and those who survived have moved on with their lives. But Mr and Mrs Claus are back, and this time the killings seem to be based around the asylum where they first met.
MY TAKE: This is some good over the top gory horror fun with villains that will delight you while they twirl their metaphorical mustaches! Mr. Claus is vicious as he is hilarious when he spits out his darkly witty lines designed to wink at us horror fans. Mrs. Claus is equally intense – she’s like a coked up version of Harley Quinn. So many creative ways of dispatching each of the victims on their list will keep you giddily amused. The FBI is very slow to catch on to as their purpose for this particular spree (one of the many horror trope “winks”). You see, this deranged Yuletide couple have done this before – and at BITs, at that – in Once Upon A Time At Christmas in 2017. But no worries if you haven’t seen the first one – this blood fest good time film stands alone, too.
