‘Holidays’ is a horror anthology film comprised of eight different short horror films each covering a different holiday. The eight films are Valentine’s day, St. Patrick’s day, Easter, Mother’s day, Father’s day, Halloween, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve. I was all ready to give this film a bad review. The still for the movie is a creepy girl, sitting on a bench covered in blood. It looks like your typical, cheesy, over the top, gore fest, low budget horror. From the looks of it, it reminded me a lot of ‘Tales of Halloween,’ another anthology film comprised of ten films covering Halloween. ‘Tales of Halloween’ was cheesy, and just not a good film. I figured however, I would give ‘Holidays’ a chance.
There’s not really any big names associated with ‘Holidays’ other than Kevin Smith directing Halloween, his daughter Harley Quinn Smith staring in her dad’s film, and Seth Green staring in Christmas. That’s about it, so i wasn’t really expecting much on that front.
I’m surprised to say it, but ‘Holidays’ delivered. Each film was pretty good, the writing was good, as well as the acting. Some films were creepier than others, Mother’s Day, and Easter especially. It is honestly one of the creepier horror movies I have watched, and it had me saying wtf more than once. If you’re wanting a creepy horror movie that’s going to make your skin crawl, then check out ‘Holidays’. It’s a solid film as far as horror movies go. I’m going to give it a 7/10.
