This is an original and stylish horror flick about two brothers who kill their parents on Christmas Eve and subsequently go on a killing spree when they get out of prison. They run into a dysfunctional family, and with the police closing in, things get very strange indeed. This is very low budget and it doesn't always make a great deal of sense, the direction is very stylish and it creates a great atmosphere but it is let down by some of the acting. There is definitely a blackly comic undertow but the action is played straight and while there are several good lines in the script there are also more than a few cheesy ones. It begins to drag towards the middle but then an unexpected twist kick-starts a gory ending. This certainly won't entertain everyone but it is satisfyingly different from your average horror film. Seriously whacky but unique and despite the flaws I enjoyed it.
