Horror-On-Sea 2019: ‘Once Upon a Time at Christmas’ Review

[Note: With the film screening as part of this years Horror-On-Sea Film Festival, here's a reposting of our review of the seasonal slasher Once Upon a Time at Christmas]

Christmas horror is one of my favourite sub genres. It of course includes such classics as Gremlins, Black Christmas, Silent Night, Deadly Night and Krampus. But with a collection like mine, it also includes lesser known or cult classic titles such as P2, Santa’s Slay, Jack Frost and Rare Exports… to name but a few. So I am always on the look out for new holiday horror. Which is the reason I watched Once Upon A Time At Christmas well outside of the usual November/December time frame.

Once Upon A Time At Christmas is, in very basic terms, a slasher movie set at Christmas – which is no bad thing.

Movie Review – Once Upon a Time at Christmas (2017)

Once Upon a Time at Christmas, 2017.

Directed by Paul Tanter.

Starring Simon Phillips, Sayla de Goede, Laurel Brady, Barry Kennedy, Jeff Ellenberger, Brook Fletcher, and Susannah Mackay.

Synopsis:

A small town is plagued by serial killers dressed as Santa and Mrs Claus, who appear to be escalating their murderous rampage every day.

Sometimes a horror movie twist is entirely hidden until the reveal. Occasionally, suggestions and hints are littered throughout the movie so that a discerning viewer might be able to pull the pieces together. Every now and then, though, along comes a film with a plot turn so obvious that the entire audience is way ahead of the characters. Once Upon a Time at Christmas builds towards a plot twist that’s about as subtle as… well, Christmas.

The film immediately introduces its audience to a pair of killers, dressed as Father Christmas (Simon Phillips) and Mrs Claus (Sayla de Goede
