The opening scene of Christmas Evil (1983) is weird, I’m not going to spoil it if you haven’t seen it. But it doesn’t end there, it gets stranger as the movie progresses. I’m not complaining, I love the strange and bizarre. Poor Harry sees something awful as a child that can never be unseen. Forever scared with the images, he grows up to be a creeper.
As the movie progresses, Harry is transformed and it’s beautiful. The eeriness is consistent throughout the movie, and when the fun happens, it’s not really over the top like I kinda expected for 1983. From reading about this movie, I discovered that it was originally called “You Better Watch Out” which seems like a more appropriate title.
This is movie is great and you should totally give it a chance. Here’s the Youtube link that I found and watched. I give Christmas Evil 4 out of 5 Stars.
