[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.
