This Christmas horror is better than it seems and evolves to be more than you’d expect.
This director, Chris Peckover, has only one other film on record and it’s called “Undocumented.” In this case the quality of his film is in paradox to his small resume. If this film is any indicator of his ability, we should watch his future work closely.
The acting is also quite good. The lead is frightening and innocent at the same time. You might see some nods to Home Alone here if you look for them but I felt this film was full fledged horror.
If these aspects sound good to you, check it out!
