#XmasHorrorMovie #3Star Review – Don’t Open Till Christmas (1984)

OMG I couldn’t stop laughing at the opening scene for Don’t Open Till Christmas (1974). The B-Movie acting is phenomenal. There’s something about British movies that always crack me up, and I’m not sure they were intending comedy. But then again, this movie is from 1984, so campy was the thing.

Don’t get me wrong this is a great Christmas horror flick. The suspense is thick, and there are so many copycat bits, it’s like a collage of 60s and 70s horror. The antagonist is quite interesting, not sticking to a single method of killing. The plot isn’t anything new, just the normal slasher where we don’t really know the motive. It also has a “soft porn” layer that really doesn’t add much but isn’t offensive.

If you come across this Don’t Open Until Christmas while perusing Holiday titles, give it a watch, but don’t take it too seriously. I gave it 3 out of 5 Stars.
